The EU Ecolabel program was established in 1992 and is recognized across Europe and around the world. The program awards a label of environmental excellence to complete products and services that meet high environmental standards throughout their life-cycle. The EU Ecolabel program supports the transition to a circular economy while helping consumers make environmentally conscious decisions at the point of purchase.
To receive an EU Ecolabel, a product must meet strict criteria that are based on the main principles of circular economy and support both sustainable production and consumption of products. For some product categories, there are specific criteria related to packaging that much must be met in order to receive the EU Ecolabel label. Recently, revised criteria for the lubricant product group require that the plastic packaging used to contain lubricants incorporate a minimum of 25% post-consumer resin (PCR) in order to be awarded the EU Ecolabel designation. The lubricant product group includes the following sub-categories:
- Accidental Loss Lubricants (ALL)
- Chainsaw oils, concrete release agents, wire rope lubricants, stern tube oils
- Grease and stern tube greases
- Hydraulic fluids and tractor transmission oils
- Industrial and marine gear oils
- Partial Loss Lubricants (PLL)
- Total Loss Lubricants (TLL)
- Two-stroke oils
