Study about the Perception of Producers from Romania Regarding the Ecolabel
The purpose of this paper is to obtain information about the Romanian producers’ perspective on some key elements regarding the environmental aspects of their company, data on the certification SR EN ISO 14001: 2015 and the ecolabel in Romania. A questionnaire of 25 questions was developed and used for data collection, which was sent between February - April 2017 by email to approximately 531 companies representing the five active sectors in Romania. We received 189 responses that will help us to identify the main issues related to the certification SR EN ISO 14001: 2015, the ecolabel and the environmental aspects of different industries. There is a relatively low interest of companies in assessing environmental performance using independent tools. However, the low percentage of participating companies responding to the questions is relatively small, which shows that companies that really wanted to make a comprehensive environmental management assessment have been looking to answer as many as possible of questions.
