This table includes additional information to the above visualized indicators, i.e. a short definition of this indicator and a description of the politically determined target values as well as explaining the political intention behind selecting this indicator.
The indicator measures the market share of products with voluntary or mandatory eco-labels, whose awarding procedures are stipulated by governmental bodies. The eco-labels and products comprise energy labels for cars, large household appliances, light bulbs and televisions, organic labels for foodstuff and Blue Angel for sanitary paper, detergents and cleaning supplies.
|Target and intention||
Private households can engage in sustainable consumption both directly and indirectly. Not only do their purchasing decisions influence their own ongoing impact on the environment, as energy-efficient vehicles or insulated homes require less energy to use and lead to lower emissions of greenhouse gases, but consumers can also purchase products that have been manufactured in particularly sustainable ways. The aim of the Federal Government is therefore to increase the market share of products certified by publicly managed ecolabelling schemes to 34 % by 2030.
The data published in the indicator report 2022 is as of 31 October 2022. The data shown on this platform is updated regularly, so that more current data may be available online than published in the indicator report 2022.
