Further development of the Blue Angel program with new eco-labels
For the development of award criteria for the Blue Angel environmental label, ten product groups were examined by the Öko-Institut and Ökopol. The results are presented in the background reports for toys, paints, set-top boxes, electric bicycles and video monitors. The existing award criteria for data centers have been revised and designs for street lighting discussed. A feasibility study on the integration of social aspects in the Blue Angel environmental label and a search on modular systems for LED luminaires was carried out. At a technical meeting on "Sustainable Investments", the extension of the eco-label to financial products was discussed.
