EcoStandard South Africa’s vision is to be the trusted certification body to set environmental standards of excellence to measure and rate a product, manufacturer and or service provider within the building sector in South Africa. EcoStandard’s mission is to establish a valuable portfolio of certified and rated products who have been awarded with an EcoProduct label for their transparency and outstanding environmental practice.
