ECO-LABELLING AND MARKET OPPORTUNITIES FOR ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY PRODUCTS : REPORT / BY THE UNCTAD SECRETARIAT
Developing countries are becoming more exposed to the effects of eco-labelling since some of the new product categories which are being selected for eco-labelling are of great export interest to them (for example, textiles and footwear).5 According to some preliminary estimations, around 45 per cent of the imports in broad product categories which have been earmarked for eco-labelling in the European Union originate in developing countries. (...) For example, in the framework of the criteria set up for footwear, the Netherlands eco-labelling programme, under certain conditions, exempts foreign producers from the requirement to recycle industrial chrome wastes. (...) In a study carried out in India, it was reported that for some firms the costs of testing the product in order to comply with the requirements of the Netherlands eco-label for footwear could lead to a cost increase of approximately 50 percent.32 In several cases the requisite technology may not be available for testing the product, even in OECD countries.
