Benefits of buying certified products

  • Environmentally preferable
    Deciding to choose GECA certified products means that you are making a better decision for the environment. GECA certified products or services have been rigorously and independently assessed to ensure they are environmentally preferable. GECA is different from some other ecolabels because it takes into account the environmental impact of a product throughout its life — from where raw materials come from to how the product is eventually disposed of. 
  • Addresses health impacts
    We understand that you want to protect your family and those around you (not to mention yourself!), which is why we address the impacts that products have on human health. We ensure that our certified products consider the effects of toxic chemicals such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) or carcinogenic substances on human health.
  • Considers social impacts
    We care about the conditions in which certified products are manufactured, which is why GECA's standards consider the social impacts of the products it certifies, including safer and more ethical working conditions.
  • Something for everyone
    GECA is a multi-sector program; meaning it has standards for many types of products from furniture to cleaning products, and paint to building materials. 
  • Better for business
    Purchasing GECA certified products can bring benefits to your business. A healthy and sustainable work environment can improve the health and productivity of your staff as well as offering a cost-effective solution. Furthermore, supporting your environmental aspirations by choosing GECA certified products can also be an important message to give to your staff and other stakeholders.
