Ecolabels on packaging and displays – why do they need to be displayed?

11.04.2022 Ecolabels provide information on the materials that have been used to produce the packaging or the display as well as any associated ecological raw material, other material or recycling properties. Eco-labels can also be symbols or logos.
Eco-labels for sustainable solutions

Use recognised eco-labels for your communication!

Using eco-labels shows your customers that your packaging or display has special environmental benefits.

Various eco-labels are currently in use. THIMM uses internationally understandable eco-labels:

  • Recycling Symbol (Möbius strip)
  • Recycling Code PAP 20
  • RESY Label
  • FSC® Logo
  • THIMM Green Electricity symbol

You can find out more about each of these eco-labels here.


Did you know?

On 1 January 2022, the FSC® published a new version of the FSC® logo marking and also updated the standard for the application of the marking. There is a transitional period until 30 June 2024 for conversion to the new version. By using the FSC® logo, you are showing your customers that their products meet the FSC® standards!

Highlight the sustainability of your packaging or display and use eco-labels! Our experts will be happy to advise you on which eco-label is the most appropriate for your solution.
