Technical Seminar: Introduction to ISO 14024 - Type 1 Ecolabelling

Date, time & venue

2019-01-07;18:30-20:00;Chan Yat Mei Sophie Room – 9/F


Organised by HKIE-EVD

Programme Highlights:-

"Ecolabelling" is a voluntary method of environmental performance certification and labelling that is practised around the world. An ecolabel identifies products or services proven environmentally preferable overall, within a specific product or service category. There are different classifications of label, and The International Organization for Standardisation (ISO) has identified three broad types of voluntary labels, with ecolabelling fitting under the strongest Type 1 designation.


In contrast to "green" symbols, or claim statements developed by manufacturers and service providers, the most credible Type 1 labels are awarded by an impartial third party for specific products or services that have been independently determined to meet transparent environmental leadership criteria, based on life-cycle considerations.


The Green Council, a local non-profit organisation and certification body established in 2000, launched the only Type 1 ecolabel in Hong Kong, The Hong Kong Green Label Scheme (HKGLS), to certify environmentally preferable products in the market.


Mr. Steven Choi, Head of Certification (HKGLS) of Green Council

Mr. Choi is actively involved in the HKGLS, which is the first independent and voluntary scheme in Hong Kong for the certification and recognition of environmentally preferable products. Mr. Choi is the assessor and coordinator of HKGLS, and he advanced HKGLS in terms of its criteria development, marketing and promotion. He delivered presentations on green purchasing at numerous seminars.
