Circular Economy: Commission expands Ecolabel criteria to computers, furniture and footwear

The European Commission has adopted a new set of ecological criteria under the existing EU Ecolabel scheme for the product groups of: Furniture, Footwear and Computers.

Manufacturers of footwear, furniture and computers (personal, notebook and tablet computers) who wish to display the EU Ecolabel should comply with strict requirements that focus on the environmental performance of the product, as well as product safety and social aspects.

Do platform memebrs have any experience with the new criteria, or with eco-innovation in these sectors?
