THE VISION OF ECOGARANTIE®
Ecogarantie® is a Belgium based trademark for the labelling of sustainable commodities, registered at European Community level. Ecogarantie® see the Sustainable Development Principles as developed from 1987 onwards by the World Commission on Environment and Development, aka the Brundtland Commission, as guiding principles for the future development of society worldwide. These Principles take in account Ecological, Economical and Social aspects to meet the needs of actual generations, while assuring that future generation will be able to meet their own needs.
