On 23 March 2022, the EU Ecolabel officially turned 30 years old! Now with over 80,000 goods and services awarded with the label across 24 product groups, the EU Ecolabel is widely recognized across Europe.

Even after three decades, we continue to strive towards a greener future and build a more resilient Europe by contributing to EU Green Deal objectives such as the circular economy, climate neutrality and zero pollution.

Many activities are planned to commemorate the achievements made in 30 years, where our label has continuously inspired consumersbusinesses, and retailers to lead a more sustainable lifestyle. In May 2022, the ‘EU Ecolabel Showroom’ will be brought back to life, but this time on wheels! From the launch at EU Green Week in Brussels, the ‘EU Ecolabel Showroom on Wheels’ will showcase EU Ecolabel goods and services across EU countries throughout the summer and autumn.
