Ecolabel Index

Established in 2007, Big Room’s mission is to make it easier to make green choices. Our Ecolabel Index Advisory Services help clients deliver on sustainability promises, by working with them to navigate the complex and diverse international ecolabel landscape, create and monitor green purchasing programs, and understand and meet the needs of stakeholders.

We combine a deep understanding of environmental standards with particular expertise in:

  • Research, data collection, analysis and reporting
  • Bespoke tool and platform development, and
  • Multi-stakeholder engagement

Clients benefit from access to Ecolabel Index, the largest global directory of ecolabels and our extensive global network of sustainability organisations and experts.
