The Green Mark is administrated by the Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) of ROC (Taiwan). Launched in 1992, EPA encourages companies to manufacture products that have less impact on the environment, reduce waste and promote recycling. In the long term, the promotion of Green Mark’s products aims to promote green consumerism among consumers to choose recyclable, low-polluting, and resource-saving products.

The certification of Green Mark follows ISO 14024 eco-friendly principles. Practically, it acts as an economic tool to boost products and services that have less impact on the environment. To achieve that, Green Mark is a voluntary scheme for environmental performances and is awarded to products in the top 20%-30% of its category.

The promotion of Green Mark and green purchasing activities now focuses on encouraging a green-living lifestyle for all citizens. The government is currently implementing three measures:

  • Increasing the supply of green products
  • Facilitating the green marketing channels
  • Promoting the Green Points Scheme

There are already over 10,600 government-recognised Green Stores facilitating green marketing channels.

The Green Points Scheme was introduced in 2014. The Scheme seeks to award Green Points to consumers who have participated in environmentally friendly activities, such as purchasing green products, taking public transportation, cleaning up neighbourhoods, reducing waste, etc.

The Green Points Scheme will increase consumers’ environmental awareness and benefits from taking part in green activities and foster the growth of the green industry.

Environment and Development Foundation (EDF) is the implementation body of Green Mark. We actively exchange Green Mark experiences with foreign ecolabelling organisations and continuously pursue international cooperation. Please feel free to contact us.
