Ahead of the Curve

Posted 20 February 2008 by Jacob Malthouse to Ecolabel News.

Here’s an interesting example of ecolabels being used as a source for industry regulation.

The European Flame Retardants Association sees compliance with ecolabels as a way to pre-qualify for possible future regulation.  In fact, the association set up a working group last year to look at how ecolabels approach their industry.

The EFRA researcher also suggested that ecolabel criteria are going to become more mainstream as they are driven by green public procurement.
