List of companies that have products which have been awarded an Environmental Choice New Zealand licence.
Environmental Choice is New Zealand's official environmental label, initiated and endorsed by the New Zealand Government, although independently operated, and recognises the increasing effort of manufacturers to reduce the environmental impact of their products.
The foundation of Environmental Choice is the stringent technical specifications it develops, which products must meet to be licensed to use the distinctive and well recognised Environmental Choice logo.
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.
While Environmental Choice New Zealand is the official environment label, providing a credible and independent guide, there are a number of other eco programmes and certifications concerned with environmental issues. We’ve summarised these into a helpful document so you can understand the different programmes. You’ll note that Environmental Choice New Zealand is the only certified Type 1 programme in New Zealand.
