Blue Angel (Blauer Engel) is the oldest and best-known certificate in the world, focused especially on the processing of raw materials and the production of goods in terms of their impact on the natural environment.
Since 1978 Blue Angel has been the standard for environmentally friendly products and services selected by an independent jury according to established criteria. When qualifying products, the following factors are assessed: raw material savings, pollution savings, noise reduction, elimination or reduction of the amount of waste and the possibility of their reuse.
Blue Angel is an ecological signal informing the consumer about ecologically high-quality products, promoting environmentally conscious consumption. This label is placed on products that are safer than other products of the same type and recognized as environmental leaders in a given group of products.
