the Austrian Ecolabel

The Austrian Ecolabel (Das Österreichische Umweltzeichen) was established in 1990 on the initiative of the Ministry of Environment and was the first ecolabel for the tourism sector worldwide. With the Austrian Ecolabel for Tourism, a quality label was made in 1996, giving Austrian tourism companies the opportunity to also demonstrate environmental management and social action.

The purpose of the ecolabel is to provide the general public with information about the environmental impact of consumer goods arising from the entire product cycle and to shift attention to alternative and environmentally friendly products. The purpose of the eco-label is to influence consumer behavior patterns with respect to the demand for goods in such a way that preference is given to more environmentally-friendly products.

eco certification

The Austrian Ecolabel has the requirements for awarding the ecolabel that the accommodation legally complies with the relevant legislation and regulations. In order to obtain the ecolabel as accommodation, the label has described a number of requirements that must be met.
