Eco-labelling is a symbol, an image or a wording on a label of a particular product or in its documentation indicating the environmental aspects of the product. Eco-labelling is intended to inform a consumer in a concise manner about the environmental benefits of the product and persuade him to buy the product that will have less impact on the environment. Eco-labelling symbols may vary.
