The Blue Angel is an ecolabel developed by the German Ministry of Ecology since 1977, which guarantees that a good or service meets high standards in terms of health, climate, water and resources characteristics. The products are evaluated across their entire life cycle, and criteria are developed for each individual product group. In particular, the end of life of hardware is considered.
Around 12,000 environmentally-friendly products and services from around 1,500 companies have been awarded the Blue Angel. If you use products or services holding the Blue Angel ecolabel, you can be sure that you are doing something good for yourself, the environment and the future. This is because the Blue Angel is an environmental label organised by the federal government of Germany for the protection of people and the environment. It sets very exacting standards, is independent and has proven itself over more than 40 years as a guide for selecting environmentally-friendly products.
