Partnering with GEN has kept us at the forefront of ecolabelling worldwide, and ensures that our standards are relevant and recognised internationally.
The Global Ecolabelling Network (GEN) is a not-for-profit association, founded in 1994 to help improve, develop and promote ecolabelling, and all members must meet requirements including following ISO 14024.
Our association with GEN means GECA certified businesses find it easier to achieve certification in other GEN member countries, and we actively participate in the latest thinking about standards and ecolabelling worldwide.

We believe in upholding the highest possible standards for the GECA ecolabel, and because of this we’ve been recognised by environmental organisations in Australia, and overseas.
We collaborate with government, not-for-profit and industry bodies to make sure our standards are as comprehensive as possible, and align with current best-practice. This collaboration also makes it easier for professionals and consumers to use our products, as in many cases our standards fit into their existing ratings systems.
We take our mandate for change seriously, and actively work to maintain (and strengthen) ties with environment and sustainability organisations working within Australia and abroad. Here’s a list of just some of our allies, and how we work together to create a better future for people and the environment:
We were the first scheme to be recognised by GBCA, and our certification aligns with their scheme’s Green Star rating system. This means using GECA certified products can directly count towards Green Star points for your project.
The Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia (ISCA) is the peak industry body for advancing sustainability in Australia’s infrastructure. ISCA is a member-based, not-for-profit industry council and works to advance sustainability in infrastructure planning, procurement, delivery and operation through its IS rating scheme. The scheme recognises GECA as an environmental labelling body and therefore rewards project proponents who source GECA certified products and are seeking an IS Certification.
BCSD Australia is a CEO-led organisation of more than 40 Australian businesses and non-governmental bodies working together to accelerate the transition to a sustainable world by aligning with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and acting on climate change. Previously known as Sustainable Business Australia, our organisation was established in 1991 by a group of forward-thinking Australian business leaders who recognised the environmental imperative and business sense of integrating sustainability into the core practice of their businesses.
We’re a member of ASBEC, the peak Australian body committed to a productive and sustainable built environment. ASBEC is composed of organisations who are involved in the planning, design, delivery and operation of our built environment.
GEN is a not-for-profit association, founded in 1994 to help improve, develop and promote ecolabelling, and all members must meet requirements including following ISO14024.
