Packaging

Packaging marketed within the EU must comply with the general requirements, which aim at protecting the environment, as well as with the specific provisions designed to prevent any risk to the health of consumers

Eco-label scheme

The EU Eco-label is awarded to products with the lowest environmental impact in a product range. The aim of the “Flower logo” is to help consumers to identify those products, which contribute significantly to improvements in relation to key environmental aspects. Products can be sold within the EU market without the Flower logo since there are no regulations which oblige to apply for the Eco-label.
