Ecocheques are a small supplement granted to the worker to acquire ecological products and services. As an employee, you benefit from this tax-free benefit: it is exempt from payroll taxes.
Since 2008, the social partners have encouraged employers to grant their employees these ecocheques (current amount: 250 € per year, to be used over two years), with the stated objective of increasing purchasing power by stimulating the green economy, ie the purchase of sustainable, environmentally friendly products in the field of energy saving, water saving, promotion for sustainable mobility, waste and, more broadly, the "promotion of attention for nature".
"More than 80,000 companies have benefited their employees in 2016, ie 1.6 million employees (up 10% compared to 2015). The issue volume in 2016 was 232 million € (an increase of 15% compared with 2015)."
Yet these ecocheques continue not to be unanimous. Why?
Shopingreen.be tries to answer this problem by proposing a multitude of organic, ecological and sustainable products.
