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.
A reduction in construction waste going to landfill is a step closer, following the release of a draft specification recognising good environmental practice in waste management and minimisation.
