“Certification of China Environmental Labelling” is the compulsory requirement for Tier I and II under the assessment criterion.

The measures are developed by the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Press and Publication, which focuses on enterprises’ services capacity, green and environmental protection level, business management status, performances of innovation and development etc. The release and implementation of the measures will improve the standard system, establish an industry best practice and guide the development of relevant enterprises.
