The EU ecolabel is the European ecolabel for non-food products and services, with the aim of stimulating more sustainable production and consumption in the EU. The EU Ecolabel is a voluntary, third party certified Type I ISO 14024 ecolabel, which was established by the European Commission in 1992. Recognized across Europe, the EU Ecolabel helps identify products and services that have a reduced environmental impact throughout its life cycle, from the extraction of raw material through to production, use and disposal.
Tourist Accommodations that have the EU Ecolabel take active measures to reduce their environmental impact notably by promoting renewable energy source use, saving energy and water and reducing waste.
Criteria for awarding the EU Ecolabel to Tourist Accommodation are divided in mandatory criteria, common for all the accommodations, and optional criteria (with a maximum score of 124 points). At the same time, the product group criteria are included in different sections: General Management, Energy, Water, Waste and wastewater, and Other criteria.
The Ravesi Hotel is a family run hotel at the island of Salina, in the Aeolian Islands, which is eco-certfied by EU Ecolabel. The hotel is the result of the faithful restoration of an ancient village owned by the Ravesi family; that is real cultural preserve! As the Hotel Ravesi operates with a lot of respect for the environment, they work organic products and raw materials from locals.
