Stationery & Office Supplies (SOSv1.0-2019)

This standard has been reproduced with permission from Japan’s Eco Mark and seeks to set the benchmark in Australia for stationery items and office supplies.

Modifications to the source document have been made to maintain relevancy to the Australian environment. The principal difference between the source document and the modified adopted GECA standard is the replacement of Eco Mark terminology with terminology relevant to Australia. A list of changes to the source document along with the justification can be seen, upon request to GECA.

After an 18-month transition period, this standard will be reviewed and undergo consultation with relevant stakeholders before assuming the status similar to that of all other GECA standards.

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

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.
