IADS Exclusive - Sustainability series #6 Ecocert
What: The number one certifying body of France, and a standard that ensures that a range of products are ecologically produced and sourced.
Why is it important: The certification can be internationally recognized across various sections of department stores from apparel to cosmetics.
As more and more sustainability certifications and labels enter the textile and cosmetics industries, the worldwide adoption and recognition of these standards can become easily blurred or even lost. So, why not turn to the label that started it all? Ecocert was the first certification body to develop standards for natural and organic products and has created a globally recognized standard to provide certified environmentally-friendly products.
