A demanding labelling process
To allow our customers to identify the most efficient solutions in terms of energy efficiency and/or environmental impact, we have created the Total Ecosolutions label. It is an own label whose labelling process has been developed in compliance with the requirements of the international standards ISO 14020 and 14021 which govern environmental declarations and guarantee their accuracy. It is formalised in a reference framework established in accordance with the principles of these standards. We have chosen to have this standard audited by an independent consulting firm, EY, in order to ensure that it is appropriate and in good compliance with the principles of the above-mentioned standards.
Governance to Encourage innovation
We have also set up an internal governance system to:
Select the products and services eligible for the label,
Assess, on the basis of a comprehensive file, whether the product or service complies with the Total Ecosolutions criteria,
Ensure that the labeling process is respected,
Have an independent expert firm, EY, verify that products/services are labeled according to the method described in the Total Ecosolutions Guidelines and that the guidelines are established in accordance with the principles set out in the ISO 14020 and 14021 standards for environmental labels and declarations
Conduct an annual review of the Total Ecosolutions line and withdraw the label from any product or service that no longer complies with the criteria (retired labels).
