Ecodynamic Enterprise Label

Coverage/Eligibility

All private, public, merchant and non-merchant organisations from all sectors located in Brussels. The companies must practice innovative eco-management.

The programme is not directed towards eco-products, but towards operational systems that reduce environmental impact.  

Main characteristics

The Ecodynamic Enterprise Label honours and promotes innovative operational management, which attempts to reduce the impact of economic activities on the environment. It is an official and free recognition. The label advertises eco-management conceptualisations, particularly in terms of waste management and prevention, rational use of energy, management of worker mobility. The sustainability efforts made are symbolised on a three-level scale with one, two or three–star(s). 

Companies obtaining the recognition may benefit:

  • upright competitive position on the market
  • social recognition
  • financial savings
  • supported networking

To obtain the label, a company must declare and implement good practices in each environmental theme - Purchases, Noise, Waste, Water, Energy, Green spaces, Mobility and Ground. The candidate's score is calculated based on the benchmark and good practice points, by calculating the proportion of actions enforced by the applying company with those that could potentially be implemented. It is this score which determines whether the candidate can receive the label and whether they receive one, two or three stars.

Applications can be submitted online on the website of the initiative. The application file must be completed within 18 months after the creation of the activity site file.

The project is coordinated by the Brussels Environment Regional Administration and it is part of the circular economy framework. It is funded by the Brussels regional government.
