"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
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
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.
