On 22 October 2021, the European Commission has adopted a revised set of EU Ecolabel criteria for cosmetic products and all-new criteria for animal care products.
The move comes amid a rise not only in EU Ecolabel products and licenses, (more than 83 000 EU Ecolabel awarded products on the EU market), but also in green products in general. A considerable uptake is expected by industry, as way to engage in the green transition and the zero-pollution ambition, at the same time empowering consumers that are increasingly looking for healthy and sustainable options for the products they purchase.
