Demanding and recognised standards
The Blue Angel only certifies the best products in a particular product group. The criteria are developed by the German Environment Agency on a scientific basis. The consumer information portal “Siegelklarheit” (Label Transparency) has also given the Blue Angel a rating of “very good”.
Transparency and independence
The Blue Angel is a Type I environmental label according to DIN EN ISO 14024. This means that it fulfils the highest standards with respect to the quality and relevance of the criteria, as well as the independence, control and transparency of the processes for developing and awarding the label. The portal “Siegelklarheit” (Label Transparency) operated by the German federal government has also given the Blue Angel a rating of “very good”.
The Blue Angel has numerous ambassadors
The Blue Angel is promoted and supported by environmental and business associations, consumer advice centres, environmental consultants in local authorities, sustainability portals and many other stakeholders who are committed to the idea of sustainability. Its ambassadors also include the 1,600 companies who use the Blue Angel.
The good international reputation of the German government’s environmental policy and the positioning of the Blue Angel as an “Ecolabel made in Germany” also help companies to sell products with environmental benefits on foreign markets.
