Impact of the EU ecolabel

Established in 1992, the EU Ecolabel is recognized across Europe and worldwide as a label of environmental excellence. The label was created to encourage producers to generate less waste and CO₂, produce durable and recyclable products, and to provide guidelines for companies looking to lower their environmental impact. Its importance cannot be understated when making the shift towards a more circular economy.

The EU ecolabel’s environmental criteria

The EU Ecolabel criteria provide best practices for companies trying to develop an eco-friendly product line. They’re all about:

  1. reducing the use of toxic substances
  2. avoiding deforestation and degradation
  3. improving waste disposal and recycling
  4. efficient use of resources & products
  5. cutting down on carbon emissions.

Stringent third-party controls guarantee adherence to the labels’ requirements. At Quick-Step, we’re proud to meet the EU’s high standards. And we’re proud to be at the forefront of innovation, being the first flooring producer ever to go above and beyond industry standards.
