Welcome to the 'tourist accommodation and camp sites services' website

Projects/Products Index

This is the project website designed for a study which prepares the ground for the revision of the current EU Ecolabel criteria for a) ‘‘Tourist accommodation’’and b) ‘‘Camp Sites’’ services. The study is carried out by the Joint Research Centre's Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (JRC-IPTS) in cooperation with Oakdene Hollins Research & Consulting (UK) and AFNOR (France). The work is being developed for the European Commission's Directorate General for the Environment.

The EU Ecolabel for Tourist Accommodation and Campsite services promotes the production and consumption of products/services with a reduced environmental impact along the life cycle and is awarded only to the best environmental performing products/services in the market.

The EU Ecolabel will be based on the requirements addressed in EU Ecolabel Regulation 66/2010. The criteria will be defined on the basis of the environmental information derived from Life Cycle Assessment analysis and product oriented environmental performance assessment studies. Several environmental, safety, technical and functional aspects will be considered. Moreover, during the EU Ecolabel criteria development continuous wide consultation is foreseen with experts and stakeholders of manufacturers, supply chain industry, consumer organizations and NGOs.

Stakeholder involvement is a crucial part of this study. If you would like to be involved in the consultation process, you can do so through the website, by registering as a stakeholder. The registered stakeholders will be regularly informed about the progress of the study, have access to preliminary results and draft documents and can respond to questionnaire and/or participate at the stakeholder meetings.
