§ Baroness Miller of Chilthorne Domer
asked Her Majesty's Government:
How many companies which manufacture or distribute in the United Kingdom were holders of the European Union ecolabel awarded by the United Kingdom competent body in 1998, 1999, 2000 and 2001. [HL4619]
§ Lord Whitty
In 1998 four manufacturing companies held the EU ecolabel award licence from the UK competent body. Two companies held the award in 1999, 2000 and 2001.
One of these licensees also makes products for retail companies. In 1998 the ecolabel appeared on its own products and those of two retail companies. In 1999 the label was carried on the products of three retail companies and in 2000 and 2001 on the products of two retail companies.
