Abstract: The EU Ecolabel criteria form key voluntary policy instruments within the European Commission’s Sustainable Consumption and Production and Sustainable Industrial Policy (SCP/SIP) Action Plan and the Roadmap for a Resource-Efficient Europe. The Roadmap seeks to move the economy of Europe onto a more resource efficient path by 2020 in order to become more competitive and to create growth and employment. The EU Ecolabel promotes the production and consumption of products with a reduced environmental impact along the life cycle and is awarded only to the best (environmental) performing products in the market. The objective of this project is to revise the two existing EU Ecolabel criteria relating to tourism services: tourist accommodation services and camp site services. These criteria will be merged, to form one set of criteria for tourist accommodation. Since the last revision of the criteria (2009/578/EC & 2009/564/EC: Commission Decisions of 9 July 2009), a number of important changes have taken place in this area, including policy changes, changes in the market and changes in the perception of tourism’s environmental impacts. This report outlines the factors which may lead to a change in criteria, through updates, revisions or the addition of new criteria. This technical report is aimed at providing a sound base to the revision process of the EU Ecolabel criteria for Tourist Accommodation (2009/578/EC) and Camp Site Services (2009/564/EC). The main purpose of this document is to evaluate the current criteria and discuss if the criteria are still relevant or should be revised. This document was developed to undergo the stakeholder consultation, which is crucial to come up with criteria adapted to the market reality while being able to select the best environmental performance products available on the market.
