The Distintivo de Garantía de Calidad Ambiental (environmental quality guarantee mark) is a scheme that identifies environmentally friendly products and services. It was set up by the Generalitat de Catalunya, and is compatible with other official environmental quality guarantee systems.
This seal is aimed at promoting the design and development of services that minimise their environmental impact and that involve saving resources (water, energy, etc.), recovering by-products and minimising waste. It provides users and consumers with reliable information on the environmental quality of goods and services, which can help to guide purchasing decisions. The environmental quality guarantee seal has so far been awarded to 156 Catalan tourism organisations and companies. The Pyrenees tourist brand holds the highest number, with almost half of the seals awarded (77).
