The EU Ecolabel

The EU Ecolabel recognises special commitment to the environment . It is a label of the European Union, which is awarded for different product groups and services. The decisive factor is that these have a lower environmental impact over their entire life cycle than comparable products without the label. Different award criteria are defined for each product group. Campsites belong to the product group accommodation services.

For example, it is required to use renewable energy sources, to save energy und water, to reduce the amount of waste produced and to promote the improvement of the local environment.
