EU Ecolabel – the EU’s official environmental label
The EU Ecolabel is a Type 1 environmental label. Products that may use the EU Ecolabel are inspected from a life-cycle perspective from raw material to waste. The products must meet stringent environmental, functional and quality requirements. The level of requirements is continually being raised.

Under FSC’s standard for Controlled Wood, manufacturers may mix FSC-certified material with uncertified material under controlled conditions. These products are labelled FSC Mix. The MIX label is also used on products containing mixtures of recycled materials. The FSC standard for Controlled Wood is a supplement to the FSC traceability standard. The traceability standard contains strict rules on how and to what extent mixing may take place. One requirement specifies that the certified material must come from controlled and acceptable sources. The Standard for Controlled Wood is used to show that.
Wood that is not accepted in FSC labelled products (unacceptable origin):
- Illegally harvested wood
- Wood harvested in violation of traditional and civil rights
- Wood harvested in forests in which high conservation values are threatened by management activities
- Wood harvested in forests being converted from natural and semi natural forest to plantations or non-forest use
- Wood from forests in which genetically modified trees are planted
