Our SGS Eco-Product Certification is a voluntary environmental certification and labeling program. Certification enables you to display the SGS Eco-Product Mark on products that meet specific environmental criteria. This program has been developed to contribute to a reduction in the environmental impact associated with product life cycle, offering you a scheme that will promote confidence in your environmental commitment.
The requirements include all life cycles of the product – from extraction of resources and manufacturing to use and disposal relating to relevant cross-media environmental indicators.
Principles of the SGS Eco-Product Mark
SGS Eco-Product Certification considers four environmental criteria throughout product life cycle:
- Resources: resource saving, recycled material use and durability
