Recognition of the Label

The Commission considers that certification (label) is the most rational method for recognizing the application of the criteria defined by the taxonomy. She introduced the concept of ecolabel.

 

Within the framework of the eco-label as defined by the Commission (Ecolabel), the key elements are to assess when the underlying assets are linked to ecologically sustainable economic activities. Assets benefiting from the Finagreen label must therefore comply with these conditions and prove it.

 

There is therefore a need for Finagreen to be recognized. Different approaches have been initiated or are in the process of being:

 

• At European level;

• At the level of the Ministry of Agriculture in France;

• At the level of the EIB / EIF.
