Engel is the longest standing ecological
quality label active since 1977 and widespread
at national level. Today there are over 3600 products
and services in over 100 categories.
Like other ecological labels it is directed
towards promoting those products which are able
to reduce a negative ecological impact and to
facilitate the choices of those consumers, who
in ever larger numbers, are interested in safeguarding
the environment. At marketing level, in Germany,
a company which produces goods certified Blaue
Engel is in a more advantageous competitive
position than the others.
The assignation of the label is carried out by
a special jury made up of state representatives,
environmental groups, consumers, scientific institutions,
syndicates and industries.
LATI S.p.A. has always been sensitive to environmental
issues; its strength lies in the assignation
of the UNI
EN ISO 14001:2004 certificate and, thanks
to studies and tests carried out by its technicians
c/o the R&D laboratories, LATI possesses
and is able to develop upon request
an extensive range of low-impact environmental
formulations which can give assistance to the
customer who would like to design manufactured
articles according to the "Blaue Engel"
