40 Years
Good for Me.
Good for the Environment.


The world’s first ecolabel is turning 40! We offer our sincere congratulations and are especially proud that some Koehler products have featured the Blue Angel ecolabel for several years now.

Since 1978, the Blue Angel has served as the German federal government’s ecolabel with the purpose of guiding consumers when purchasing sustainable products and services. “More and more people are looking to purchase products that are durable and environmentally friendly. This is exactly what the Blue Angel represents. For 40 years now, this ecolabel has independently and credibly guaranteed high standards to protect our environment and health,” says Svenja Schulze, federal minister of the environment, nature conservation, and nuclear safety.

Around 12,000 products have now been awarded the Blue Angel. In order to receive a Blue Angel label, a product must meet the criteria specified by an independent jury. For Koehler’s products, this means – for instance – that only certain chemicals or selected types of recycled paper can be used. The criteria for receiving the Blue Angel are not set in stone; rather, they are continuously evaluated and updated.

This means Koehler must also ensure that the products that already bear the Blue Angel label constantly evolve in keeping with the Blue Angel maxim “Good for me. Good for the environment.” so that they continue to meet the uncompromising criteria of this reputable ecolabel.

For many years now, the high-quality Koehler Office Board and Creative Board from the ColorTech Paper range have proudly displayed the Blue Angel. And our more recent high-quality creative print and Colorline IQ products have also been awarded the Blue Angel – though they continue to evolve in order to keep meeting the updated criteria of this ecolabel.

We look forward to continuing to work together with the Blue Angel and on Koehler papers for an eco-conscious future.


After all, environmental protection affects everyone.
