European quality label for sutainable construction products

natureplus® quality label marks environmentally-friendly construction products being non-hazarduous to health.

The focus is environment, health and sustainability. The quality label is awarded by the International Association for Sustainable Building and Living - natureplus e.V.   which developed the label in cooperation with several testing bodies (among those eco-INSTITUT).

The products have to pass an extensive pretest and must comply with the requirements of the basic criteria.

The main tests contain an inspection of manufacturing plant, life cycle analysis and an extensive laboratoring testing on emissions, harmful contents and odour.
