A reliable label

The requirements set by the Blue Angel place a particular focus on examining the impact that products and services have on the environment: on the climate, resources, water, soil and air. These tests also focus on their impact on people.

Products and services awarded with the Blue Angel cause less damage to the environment and, at the same time, protect people's health by e.g.:

  • Saving resources during their production
  • Being manufactured from sustainably produced raw materials
  • Using less resources during their use or disposal because they are, for example, particularly energy efficient
  • Avoiding dangerous substances for the environment or people's health or limiting them to a minimum
  • Being especially durable and easy to repair
  • Being easy to recycle
  • Causing low emissions to the soil, water and air, as well as low noise emissions
  • Nevertheless fulfilling their intended function (fitness for use) to a high level of quality
