Mérieux NutriSciences - Ecolabel

As the provision of safety and quality services and environmentally friendly solutions is one of Mérieux NutriSciences’ founding values, we have a specific department dedicated to the study of these issues, comprising experts who participate in international committees on environmental sustainability. Our commitment in this area covers two main aspects:

  • Biodegradability and compostability: these are important factors in reducing and removing organic contaminants from the environment. The evaluation of biodegradability is an essential parameter for environmental risk assessments.
  • The EU Ecolabel on detergents: this is a voluntary label promoting environmental excellence that is recognized throughout Europe. Only products and services with a reduced environmental impact may be awarded this label.
