ECOSTANDARD – GREENING THE FUTURE AWARDS 2014
ECOSTANDARD WINS – MAIL & GUARDIAN GREENING THE FUTURE AWARDS 2014
EcoStandard is extremely excited to announce that we are one of the winners of Mail & Guardian Greening the Future 2014 Awards. The awards ceremony was held in Sandton Johannesburg on 24 June 2014 and EcoStandard won the category: Green Economy Modelling.
This category includes “non-profit organisations that promote economic growth and job creation in conjunction with low carbon development and natural resource efficiency. These are projects that encourage and/or demonstrate the wisdom of investment in the green economy”.
EcoStandard is extremely proud of this award as it showcases and highlights the need for such an eco-label to promote resource efficiency and encourage companies and industries to start thinking outside the box when it comes to resource use, packaging, product use and product end-of-life.
The hard work has paid off and the recognition from the Mail & Guardian is testament that there is a need to eliminate green washing and to promote products with legitimate claims verified by a third party.
