GreenPro Ecolabel applies product specific ‘Ecolabel Standards’ for evaluating the products. The Ecolabel standards are developed with the support of respective product committees formed under the aegis of Green Products and Services Council.
The product committee involves all major stake holders related to the respective product category including product manufacturers, standard setters, conformity agencies, architects, user’s et al. The product committee is led by an expert who is also an unbiased specifier.
The council’s endeavour is to periodically update the standard and raise the bar. Updating of the standard will be taken up with the support of the product committee on consensus basis. Updates or addenda will be incorporated and formally communicated to the applicants.
The Certification calls for demonstration of product performance through testing as per specified standards and implementation of measures at every stage of the Life Cycle of the product, leading to clearly measurable environmental benefits.
