Due to the large number of eco-labels the European Commission introduced the European Eco-label in 2001. However, after careful consideration the European Commission is convinced that the current system is too expensive and bureaucratic. Therefore they want to use the system more intensively, review existing criteria’s and introduce new guidelines for food and products that consume energy indirectly. First they have to organize a study to investigate if it is possible to create reliable environmentally friendly guidelines for these kind of products. Finally, to reassure the consumers clear rules, practical implementation and maximal reduction of ecological problems are necessary.
