Ecologically, the third aspect of the Ecogarantie key values

Ecologically

The ecological footprint should be the lowest possible. Therefore we created an ingredient protocol. This implies to respect certain rules: used ingredients need to have a qualitative origin, be renewable if possible and in case of vegetable extracts, they must be 100% organic. On the other hand: some ingredients are forbidden when perceived as harmful. Moreover, there is a zero waste policy concerning energy, sourcing and recycling. Lastly, we demand to respect the nature: low emissions, reasonable transport, no toxicity and good biodegradability.

Second, there is an extensive control of the company

Control

The awarding of the Ecogarantie label depends on a certification that is carried out by an accredited third-party certification body (Certisys, TÜV Nord Integra or Quality Partner). This certification body ensures that the products comply with the Ecogarantie specifications and delivers a certificate to our members. An independent certification guarantees a higher degree of reliability.

Then Ecogarantie gets a report with the results

Report

If the products comply with the specifications, the certification body sends us a report that we read and check. Besides, we will verify which product(s) can be labelled and authorise our new member to affix the Ecogarantie logo on their product(s).

There is also a yearly follow-up

Follow-up

Please note that the Ecogarantie label is not granted forever. The certification is valid for one year but is renewable. The certification body will regularly control the labelled products to check their compliance. Our members must therefore keep their standards and frequently carry out a check-up.
