The Natura 2000 logo serves a strategically valuable function in promoting the Natura 2000 network.
Since its creation in 1996, the Natura 2000 logo can be used by Member States to identify Natura 2000 sites. It can be also used for communication purposes on documents & publications and in order to increase awareness about the Natura 2000 network.
In June 2021, the Commission has adopted a Commission Decision as regards the use of the Natura 2000 logo on goods and services. Under this Decision, upon request, the Commission may grant to Member States the free licence to use of the Natura 2000 logo on goods and services in their territory. The conditions for its use are set out in the licence agreement.
Through this initiative, the Commission aims to promote the benefits that Natura 2000 can provide to local economies and help building new partnerships between site managers, landowners and users, local businesses, while improving the perception of and increasing support for the Natura 2000 network.
Conditions to use the Natura 2000 logo on goods and services:
(i) contribute to the achievement of the conservation objectives of specific Natura 2000 sites, provided that those objectives have been established in accordance with the Habitats and Birds Directives; or
(ii) originate completely or significantly from or are provided in specific Natura 2000 sites and are fully compatible with their conservation objectives, provided that the latter have been established in accordance with the Habitats and Birds Directives.
