The Ecodynamic enterprise label was created in 1999 by Brussels Environment. This Environmental Management System (EMS) offers private companies and public administrations with a systematic approach to lowering their impact on the environment. The “Ecodynamic enterprise” label is an official recognition of good environmental management practices by the Brussels-Capital Region. It encourages the introduction of an EMS, with a view towards eventual EMAS or ISO 14001 registrations. There are three levels depending on the initial level of environmental performance within the organisation. Each level is symbolised by stars. Applications are evaluated based on a large range of criteria. These criteria concern specific ecomanagement actions, quality of the environmental review, and the plan of actions established.
