    Supporting Partner

    GECA - creating solutions for sustainable consumption and production.

    GECA is an independent not-for-profit organisation with over twenty-three years of experience engaging with stakeholders across the entire lifecycle of products and services. Since 2000, we've been dedicated to enabling architects, manufacturers, specifiers, procurement professionals and individuals to make better choices for people and planet.

    Our lifecycle ecolabelling scheme was the first of its kind in Australia, and we're proud to be the only Australian member of the Global Ecolabelling Network, the leading network of the world's most credible and robust ecolabels adhering to ISO 14024 principles. We're widely respected and recognised in Australia and globally by green building programs such as Green Star, the IS Rating Scheme, NABERS and the WELL Building Standard.

    When you see the GECA ecolabel on products and services, you know they've met criteria for a wide range of science-based environmental, human health and social impacts across their entire lifecycle while proving that they perform as promised. And importantly, third-party independent Assurance Providers conduct all assessments against GECA's standards.

    GECA's lifecycle ecolabel standards include circular criteria such as recyclability, replaceable parts, design for separability or disassembly and Product Stewardship or take-back services. Our Recycled Products, Waste Collection Services, Construction & Demolition Waste Services, and Sustainable Products & Services standards are particularly relevant to growing Australia's circular economy.
