Type 1 labels pursue the goal to contribute to the reduction of the environmental impacts associated to products and the eLabel! specificity is the disclosure of the &environmental criteria considered and of their quantitative and qualitative values, a so-called “speaking Type 1” label. This information is made available to consumers via the Kyoto Club website, with the possibility to indicate criteria directly on the product, either with a minimum of three criteria, which are common to all the labels belonging to a same category, or with the indication of all the criteria used.
