Challenges
•
•
•
•
•
Legal
• Do the demands meet the local legal demands
• Voluntarily contra compulsory
Ethical
• Working hours in COC contra workers demand (fx China)
Environmental
• How to make the producer see the advantages by investing in the
environment if customers only focus on price
Price
• The price will be higher as only producers with good machines, systems,
chemicals, skilled workforce can obtain fx Ecolabel
Limited knowledge about the labels
• Competitors do not know what is behind the label and inform that they can
require easily
Advantages
• What have we gained towards our producers
and customers
• Local environment improved
• Investment in sustainable solutions by the
producers
• Awareness of the production set up here and by
the producers – understanding each other better
• All parties focus on the environment and ethical
matters and try to do better

Experience with the proces
of ECO-label
• Use external consultant to help with the process
– When: If no chemical engineer / person with similar qualifications
employed in the company
– Why: Speak same language – chemical engineer to chemical engineer
– What: Help producer to get correct information - understand the
demands from Ecolabel and producer
– Why: Ecolabel will ask one time and expect information to be given
• Visit to Eco label Denmark – you and your consultant
• Participate in audits by supplier
• Involve yourself in the process to secure progress (ask Ecolabel about
status, progress, offer help if needed)
• If possible participate when f.x new criteria is made
Experience with participation
of public tender
• Where do we meet it?
- Hospitals, elderly homes, other public
institutions where they use flat linen.
• Until today, no specific requirements of eco
labelling
• What is there to gain from implementing eco
label requirements in a public tender.
