Developed by the General Commission for Sustainable Development, the French Ecolabelling aims to assess the environmental impact of products by taking into account their entire life cycle. This system is based on specific indicators and French databases.

The Ecobalyse tool, which calculates the environmental cost of products, went online at the end of March. The methodology presented is subject to consultation by marketers.
