By the end of October 2021, the European Commission will adopt a revised set of EU Ecolabel criteria for cosmetic products and all-new criteria for animal care products. The EU Ecolabel promotes the circular economy by encouraging producers to generate less waste and CO2 during the manufacturing process. The EU Ecolabel criteria also encourages companies to develop products that are durable, easy to repair and recycle.

The move comes amid a rise not only in EU Ecolabel products and licenses, but also in green products in general. A considerable uptake is expected by industry, as  a 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.
