Here are the different ecological criteria you can add to your listing on the website:
Renewable energy provider
My home is either supplied by a renewable energy supplier or directly connected to a low-carbon source (solar panels on the roof, geothermal energy, etc.)
For this criterion to be valid, your supplier must be able to prove that 80% of your electricity consumption comes from :
- hydraulic energy (dams)
- wind power
- solar energy
- geothermal energy
- wave energy
- tidal energy
- biomass energy

Low consumption machines
My most energy-intensive appliances were purchased less than five years ago (after 2017) and have an EU energy efficiency rating of A or B.
The energy-using appliances concerned are:
- oven and cooker hood
- washing machines
- tumble dryers
- television set
- air conditioner
Selective waste sorting
My home has waste sorting bins (glass/cardboard/plastic)
My home has a vegetable garden where at least 3 different fruits/vegetables grow.
Public transport access
My home is located near (less than 10-minute walk) a train/metro/bus/tramway/bike station/carpooling.
My home has photovoltaic panels that provide part of the energy for my home.
