Eco-labelling and International Trade

Eco-labelling is a process used to inform the consumer of the environmental characteristics of a good or service. The introduction of the Blue Angel eco-seal in Germany in 1977 has given impetus to many other countries to introduce stringent packaging legislation. To-date over thirty countries have passed legislation and instituted eco-labelling programmes and there are presently more than sixty eco-labels in existence globally.
