Planet

In the CSR debate, Planet refers to sustainable environmental practices. Within the ICT sector, the debate on managing the environmental footprint covers ICT companies` premises and production processes and the larger impact on our cities and households.

What are the environmental impacts of the ICT sector? What positive effects will arise from the application and use of CSR in ICT? How innovative ICT can be used for more efficient environmental management? How can ICT goods and services actively help to improve sustainability?

Within this category, R-ICT supports debate on the environmental footprint of ICT businesses.

| Code of conduct/guidelines/standard/certification | Design/Product | Indicator set/monitoring system | EU Ecolabel

The EU Ecolabel helps identify products and services that have a reduced environmental impact throughout their life cycle, from the extraction of raw material through to production, use and disposal. The EU Ecolabel scheme is a commitment to environmental sustainability. The criteria have been developed and agreed upon by scientists, NGOs and stakeholders to create a credible and reliable way to make environmentally responsible choices.
From the raw materials to manufacturing, packaging, distribution and disposal, EU Ecolabel products are evaluated by independent experts to ensure they meet criteria that reduce their environmental impact. The life cycle of a product begins with extraction – the mining or cultivation of the raw materials, such as cotton (for textiles) or wood (for paper products). It continues with manufacturing and packaging, distribution, use and finally the “end of life” stage, when the product is disposed of or recycled. When developing EU Ecolabel criteria for products, the focus is on the stages where the product has the highest environmental impact, and this differs from product to product.

Criteria are developed and revised in a transparent way by a group of experts and stakeholders. For more information on the development of EU Ecolabel criteria, visit the Criteria development and revision section.
