Introducing the EU Ecolabel
What is the EU Ecolabel ?
EU Ecolabel is a label of environmental excellence that is awarded to products meeting high environmental standards throughout their lifecycle: from raw material extraction, to production, distribution and disposal.
European Commission, 2020
Why the EU Ecolabel ?
The EU Ecolabel provides clarity. Our customer know they are buying a sustainable product.
- The certificate is recognised worldwide. It is the equivalent to the Nordic Swan Ecolabel.
- 83, 590 products have been awarded the EU Ecolabel certification, Only 915 are furniture, from just 23 licensed companies.
- This is a prestigious certification and OCI were the first company to receive this for a non-wooden chair.
- We aim to increase our offering of EU Ecolabel certified furniture, where possible.
No cost premium has been applied to our EU Ecolabel certified range. This is to encourage customers to make sustainable choices. As a business we aim to increase our EU Ecolabel certified product offering across a wider range of products.
Our shells are made from 50% recycled plastic. The inner mould is made from recycled plastic pellets.
The outer mould is made in virgin plastic, which gives it a flexibility that 100 % recycled plastic wouldn’t.
This has allowed our chairs to be tested for 50 years of use!
