|Abstract:||Eco-labelling is one of the key tools used by policy-makers in many parts of the world to encourage more sustainable production and consumption. By providing environmental information on products and services, eco-labels address both business users and consumers and range from mandatory approaches, such as required product declarations, to voluntary approaches, such as national eco-labels. The book analyses the conditions under which eco-labelling schemes - both mandatory and voluntary - are or can become an efficient and effective tool to achieve given objectives; assesses previous experiences with eco-labels in different European countries and relationship of these schemes with business strategies, IPP and market conditions; defines strategies aimed at linking eco-labels with other IPP measures; explores how eco-labels can be used to encourage sustainable consumption patterns, create green markets, foster innovation and development of green products and services, and implement multi-stakeholder initiatives; and sets out detailed recommendations for the future of eco-labelling. The book will be required reading for policy-makers, businesses involved with eco-labelling schemes and researchers interested in the development of sustainable production and consumption and integrated product policy worldwide. This chapter of the book analyses in detail the case study of tissue paper and copying paper, in particular the Environmental Product Information Schemes of these two product categories and identifies the key influencing factors to make eco-labels more efficient and effective.|
