Reduce Product Environmental Footprint with Green Product Mark
Indicate the overall environmental preferability of your products with our Green Product Mark. The certification criteria behind this voluntary environmental labelling scheme are based on indicators arising from product life cycle considerations and aim to communicate verifiable and accurate information on environmental aspects of products. With the Green Product Mark certification, you give consumers and purchasers a clear guideline for environmentally preferable products with less environmental impact.
