GECA’s ecolabel is a sign that buyers can trust to have a lower impact on the environment and human health, are ethically made and fit for purpose.
Our ecolabel and standards address multiple environmental attributes such as toxicity, air quality, energy use, recyclability, VOCs, carcinogens, reducing water consumption, protecting waterways, use of sustainable materials and minimising material usage. They also consider impacts across the entire life cycle of a product or service, from raw material extraction through to use and eventual disposal or breakdown.
We care about the conditions in which certified products are manufactured, which is why social impacts are across all our standards. Including, safer and more ethical working conditions, not only for the employees, but also those involved in the supply chain.
The ecolabel ensures that certified products consider the effects of toxic chemicals such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) or carcinogenic substances on human health. GECA certified products contribute considerably to better air quality, minimising health risks.
Our comprehensive and stringent standards are recognised by government agencies and green building schemes such as Green Star, WELL, ISCA and NABERS and our product database is linked to many procurement sites across many sectors in Australia and globally.
The Green building industry has become renowned for finding creative and innovative solutions that reduce environmental impact and increase health and safety. GECA certified products, materials and services benefit both suppliers and buyers, providing a high level of trust so that purchasers can avoid costly mistakes and reduce risk.
We are proud to be recognised by these bodies, and our certification aligns with their systems to reduce your workload during any assessment.
