ISO standard: Principles and procedures for ecolabelling

19 April 2018

Ecolabelling found its origins in the growing global concern for environmental protection. As companies have come to recognize that environmental concerns may be translated into a market advantage, various environmental declarations, claims and labels have emerged, such as natural, recyclable, eco-friendly, low-energy, recycled content, and so forth.
These have exerted a powerful attraction on consumers looking for ways to reduce environmental impacts through their purchasing choices, but they have also led to some confusion and scepticism. This is why a new version of ISO 14024 was needed to help make sense of it all (World Packaging Standardisation Newsletter, April 2018).
