Facts about eco labels
Ecolabelling Denmark is responsible for the administration of the only two officially approved ecolabels in Denmark: The Nordic and European ecolabels.
Since 2004, Ecolabelling Denmark has carried out an annual survey of the Danish population's knowledge and understanding of the Nordic and European ecolabels, which both are official ecolabels in Denmark. The survey is conducted on a representative section of the Danish population.
Purpose of the survey
The survey reflects the number of people who are familiar with the two ecolabels, as well as their degree of knowledge and understanding of the ecolabels.
The survey covers the Danish population age 18 to 74 and is conducted over the internet. A representative segment of the population's target group is chosen as respondents.
The representative segment emphasises gender, age and location. The survey was conducted by the opinion research institute, Respons Analyse Oslo.
