Today we celebrate World Ecolabel Day!
This day is a celebration of environmental performance recognition of products and services all around the world.
Environmental Choice is the official Ecolabel of New Zealand. Although initiated and endorsed by the New Zealand Government, Environmental Choice is firmly independent, recognising the increasing effort of manufacturers to reduce the environmental impact of their products and enabling consumers to reliably select products from companies who value reducing harm to the environment as much as they do.
Environmental Choice operates to internationally recognised standards and principles, and is a member of GEN, the Global Ecolabelling Network, which links a world of environmentally preferable products and services.
At the foundation of Environmental Choice are the technical specifications it develops, setting the most stringent, up to date standards for environmental compliance in business. New Zealand companies who can meet or exceed these specifications are permitted to display the ECNZ mark, widely recognised by New Zealanders as a badge of environmental leadership.
We are proud to have an entire range of products, Kemsol Green, that sport this environmentally focused license. New Zealanders can be confident that by using products from this range, they are doing a service to the environment and taking steps towards a greener future for NZ.
