Eco label with brand impact
Several office and organisational aids have also been awarded the well-known eco label.
The Blue Angel is the world’s first and oldest eco label – this seal of eco quality is awarded to environmentally friendly products and service. Among others the following requirements are stipulated for the “Recycled cardboard” product category:
- Benefits for health and the environment
- Use of recycled paper for increased protection of forests
- Lower environmental impact compared to virgin fibre use
- Very low-emission
The environmentally friendly office
In an ecological system comparison paper products predominantly made from recycled paper achieve a considerably better and more positive score than paper products made from primary fibres that use wood as a source of raw material – while possessing comparable performance characteristics. The aspects examined are consumption of resources, waste water load, as well as water and energy usage.
