Compliance & Certification with GECA

Good Environmental Choice Australia (GECA) runs a multi-sector ecolabelling program and is the only Australian member of the Global Ecolabelling Network (GEN). Ecolabels like GECA’s play an essential role in both consumer and commercial markets to facilitate the significant improvement in the sustainability of products. The independent certification process helps manufacturers take action to improve the environmental and social impacts of their products.


GECA's Type 1 ecolabelling scheme enables consumers to choose from thousands of certified products and services and have confidence that they have a lower impact on the environment, human health and address important social considerations. Bureau Veritas can assist manufacturers and suppliers to demonstrate compliance with the GECA Scheme which is applicable to a wide range of products and services through independent audit and verification of their products and systems, in conformance with Environmental labels and declarations (ISO 14024).


Competitive Advantage

In today’s increasingly cost-competitive and deregulated markets, consumers are constantly seeking assurance of the performance and quality of products. The GECA ecolabel on your product and service indicates a good environmental choice and can create new opportunities for your business. The GECA ecolabel tells your customers that you are committed to quality and the environment and that you have the confidence to regularly have your product independently assessed.


Regular independent assessment of your system allows you to fine-tune processes, improve efficiency and reduce costs. You can have real confidence and pride in your product.

Sustainability Leadership

By having the GECA’s ecolabel on your products and services, product specifiers and purchasers can be assured that your products are better for the environment and reduce their impact on human health.

World-class Best Practice

The GECA Standards are developed using ISO 14024 principles for global best practice in ecolabelling and therefore certification acts as solid evidence that your product or service meets world-class environmental Standards.


When you gain GECA certification, you form a partnership with Bureau Veritas to get maximum benefit from your processes.
