  • The 'Eco-dynamic Enterprise' label

    The Ecodynamic Enterprise Label is an official and free accreditation. It rewards and encourages companies, non-profit organisations and institutions in the public or private sector in Brussels that take action to reduce the impact of their activity on the environment.

Thus, it highlights initiatives in areas such as waste prevention and the circular economy, rational energy use, good management of worker mobility and sustainable food.

It can be used by any organization regardless of its activity or sector. Using ISO 14001:2004 can provide assurance to company management and employees as well as external stakeholders that environmental impact is being measured and improved.

    • Savings in consumption of energy and materials

    • Improved corporate image among regulators, customers and the public
