IPInnovation

Every year we receive over two hundred and fifty thousand trade mark and design applications. Almost all of these applications come to us online, and we were one of the first IP offices in the world to offer e-filing services to our customers.

 

We provide state of the art tools and e-services for our customers and use new technologies to future-proof the way we work.

 

We’ve led the way in developing a full set of online tools to help you at every stage of your IP journey. Now, everything from searching for a trade mark with images to filing an appeal can be done online at EUIPO. We’ve even developed a full IP enforcement platform to help you protect your IP rights once your trade mark or design has been registered.

And our Strategic Plan 2025 commits us to developing innovative tools and services for all our customers using next-generation technologies, including blockchain and artificial intelligence.

The EUIPO wins Gold Green Apple Environment Award

 

The EUIPO has once again been recognised for its innovative environmental practices by the Green Apple Environment Awards.

The Office won Gold in the ‘Legal/Climate Change’ category for its overall achievements and efforts to reduce the Office's energy, paper and carbon consumption within the EUIPO’s environmental project – Reduction of EUIPO’s environmental impact. In 2019, the Office won the gold award for its AA3

Building in the 'Built Environment & Architectural Heritage' category. And in 2016, the Office won the gold award in the 'New build' category and the bronze award in the 'Commercial' category.

In 2019 and compared with 2015, the Office reduced its consumption (per on-site worker) of paper by 73 %, toner by 79 %, water by 38 %, electricity by 32 % and gas by 74 %. Waste generation dropped by 65 % while greenhouse gas emissions were reduced by 33 %. Meanwhile, 30 % of the EUIPO’s energy demand is now produced on-site from renewable sources and heating-related fossil fuel consumption was reduced to zero.

The Green Organisation was established in 1994 as 'an international, independent, non-profit, non-political, non-activist environment group, dedicated to recognising, rewarding and promoting environmental best practice around the world.' The Awards scheme was set up in 1994 to recognise, reward and promote environmental best practices worldwide.
