Standards List

Our industry is constantly evolving, and we believe it’s vital that we continue to monitor our standards for relevance and to continue on the path of best practice. This means that our standards are reviewed every seven years or earlier. Below you can view our current standards as well as previous standard versions where we have licensees with products and services, certified.
Our licensees undergo re-certification every three years and when they do, are assessed against the most current standard.

There are many green building programs that recognise GECA’s standards. Products and services under these standards can contribute to credits under programs, such as Green Star (GBCA), IS (ISCA) and WELL (WELL Building Institute).

If you can’t find a standard that applies for your product then talk to us. Contact us at standards@geca.org.au

GECA is seen by major clients across Australia and internationally to be a credible organisation that provides certification to forward thinking companies that seek to maintain and further environmental standards. Envirofluid is glad to be associated with the GECA label”.

Lydia Ohlmeyer, Marketing and Operations Manager
ENVIROFLUID

Being an environmentally aware business, we needed a way to ensure, adhere and implement sustainably preferable strategies into our business plan. The team at GECA is co-operative and their guidance ensured that we not only complied with green standards, but exceeded them. The process is credible and well-received in the market place and ensures that we are set apart from the not-so-genuine ‘greenwashing’ companies.

DIRECT ERGONOMICS

Fitting out such a large project with sustainably preferable furniture is rewarding. That a well-renowned and international company would choose to use GECA certified Office Link Group furniture is exciting and without doubt, a step in the right direction for improving sustainability in the workplace. The whole work zone looks great — the architect has done a wonderful job of creating the space. With the addition of the sustainably preferable products that are proven to improve the health and wellbeing of those in the workspace, it is now a really nice place to work.

OFFICE LINK GROUP

The entire everroll range of rubber flooring is certified under the Good Environmental Choice Australia (GECA) Floor Covering Standard. It achieves a Level A 100 per cent item score in the GBCA Fitout Calculators Guide v1 for Flooring. We chose to become GECA certified because we feel that it is important to communicate to consumers that we take environmental responsibility seriously and GECA helps us do this. As well as its sustainable properties, everroll offers architects and designers other benefits including durability, sound absorption, slip resistance, modular designs, aesthetic appeal and comfort.

Our GECA certified EcoWorx carpet tiles ticked all the boxes. Certified with the highest level of GECA certification and a Green Star Level A product rating according to the Green Building Council of Australia, EcoWorx carpet tiles are 100 per cent PVC free and are backed with an environmental guarantee for reclamation and recycling. We chose to get GECA certified because people are demanding sustainable products and here in Australia GECA helps demonstrate our commitment to sustainability. This design focused product is also durable and low-maintenance enabling it to withstand the unique demands of a healthcare environment.

When Sheldon Commercial Interiors was appointed to design the new offices for world renowned company Faber-Castell it was excited by the opportunity to incorporate the bright palette of colours in a bold new interior. The new fit-out also presented a great opportunity for designer Tara Gunasekera to incorporate environmentally sustainable design initiatives including the specification of a great range of GECA certified products including the innovative Logic system. Using environmentally preferable GECA certified products is something we try to achieve as often as possible. We recognise the importance of introducing better products for the environment in the commercial sphere and this is integral to our design philosophy.
