natureplus – The International Association for Sustainable Building and Living - natureplus e.V.

Sustainable building with the natureplus®-eco-label

The construction and accommodation sector consumes around 40 % of worldwide resources and over 50 % of the primary energy in Europe. On average, we spend over 90 % of our lives in enclosed buildings that are increasingly being built in an airtight manner. Consequently, the quality of building products has a great influence on the environment and our health.

The international association natureplus® developed the eco-label of the same name in order to offer consumers and construction professionals in Europe clear selection guidance for products in the building sector. It attests compliance with high standards of quality for all areas relevant to sustainability.

Currently, the natureplus® eco-label has been awarded to over 600 building products in Europe and is recognized across Europe by building specialists, consumers environmental organisations, government bodies and building evaluation systems.

The assessments to verify the requirements are conducted by accredited laboratories and assessors in line with recognized international standards. The natureplus® eco-label is the only European environmental label for building products that is founded on strict scientific criteria and it is based on three key pillars:

 

The natureplus®-eco-label is only awarded to the best products for sustainable building.
