Abstract

This contribution examines the EU's voluntary eco-labelling scheme which was revised in 2000 and 2010. Due to its life-cycle approach, which since the scheme's inception has taken into account e.g. energy consumption during production and use (besides further environmental impacts), this scheme has been intensely debated in trade and academic circles since its first version was introduced in 1992. The new 2010 EU scheme similarly considers the whole life cycle of products, including 'the most significant environmental impacts, in particular the impact on climate change'. Therefore, and in view of the broad range of issues raised by it, this scheme presents a model test case under WTO law also for other climate-related labelling schemes and ecolabelling schemes more generally.
