Environmental Choice New Zealand (The New Zealand Ecolabelling Trust)
Environmental Choice New Zealand has been the country’s only Type l eco-label for the past 30 years. It identifies products and services that are sustainably preferable, helping businesses, government, and consumers make better purchasing decisions.
ECNZ believes enabling industry competition to leverage environmental value is the fastest and most effective way of transitioning to a sustainable, low-emissions economy.
At the foundation of Environmental Choice are the technical specifications it develops, setting the most stringent, up to date standards for environmental compliance in business. New Zealand companies who can meet or exceed these specifications are permitted to display the ECNZ mark, widely recognised by New Zealanders as a badge of environmental leadership.
The label, which is owned and endorsed by the New Zealand government, currently has 24 specifications for various goods and services, with more underway.
