Eco-labels have been on the rise over the last few years. As the number of eco-labels continues to rise, purchasing professionals are becoming increasingly confused about which standards they can trust.
In response, steps are being taken to create a more simplified eco-labeling landscape. Most recently, the Chlorine Free Products Association (CFPA) and the EcoLogo Program announced a partnership that will mean greater harmonization of standards and certifications. This partnership also represents additional benefits for environmental leaders, including discounted audit/verification and licensing fees for clients who seek both certifications as well as a single audit for both certifications.
Moving toward the standardization of these two certifications will mean easier decision-making for purchasing professionals and greater sustainability in the working environment.
