Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies (ISO

member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out through ISO technical

committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical committee has been established has

the right to be represented on that committee. International organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in

liaison with ISO, also take part in the work. ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical

Commission (IEC) on all matters of electrotechnical standardization.

International Standards are drafted in accordance with the rules given in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 3.

Draft International Standards adopted by the technical committees are circulated to the member bodies for voting.

Publication as an International Standard requires approval by at least 75 % of the member bodies casting a vote.

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this International Standard may be the subject of

patent rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard ISO 14020 was prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC 207, Environmental

management, Subcommittee SC 3, Environmental labelling.

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition (ISO 14020:1998), which has been technically revised.

Introduction

Environmental labels and declarations are one of the tools of environmental management, which is the subject of

the ISO 14000 series.

Environmental labels and declarations provide information about a product or service in terms of its overall

environmental character, a specific environmental aspect, or any number of aspects. Purchasers and potential

purchasers can use this information in choosing the products or services they desire based on environmental, as

well as other, considerations. The provider of the product or service hopes the environmental label or declaration

will be effective in influencing the purchasing decision in favour of its product or service. If the environmental label

or declaration has this effect, the market share of the product or service can increase and other providers may

respond by improving the environmental aspects of their products or services to enable them to use environmental

labels or make environmental declarations, resulting in reduced environmental stress from that product or service

category.
