The Hong Kong Green Label Scheme (HKGLS) is an independent and voluntary scheme for the certification of environmentally preferable products launched in 2000 by the Green Council. The scheme sets environmental Product Criteria and awards its “Green Label” to products that are qualified regarding their environment attributes and/or performance, and the aim is to encourage manufacturers to supply products with good environmental performance and provide a convenient means for consumers to recognise products that are more environmentally responsible, thus promoting a more sustainable pattern of consumption.

In establishing the product criteria, HKGLS draws from relevant international standards and is benchmarked with well-developed ecolabels to ensure credibility.

As with the majority of ecolabelling programmes, HKGLS is an ISO 14024 Type 1 label, which involves a third-party certification requiring considerations of life cycle impacts.
