The last years, an increasing attention has been paid to the environmental impact of the manufacture, use and disposal of products. More and more companies are receiving sustainability related enquiries from interested parties such as their customers, legislative bodies, local communities, etc.

The challenge is to present the information in an accurate and understandable way.

Tools such as Environmental labeling, Environmental Product Declarations, Sustainability Performance Indicators and Safety Data Sheets (see left menu) can be used to communicate the sustainability performance of products, activities and organizations (see also a DANTES publication on communication tools). In addition to Environmental Product Declarations, there are also other systems of environmental labeling/information such as material declarations or recycling descriptions.
