GEC believes there are important reasons why Type 1 ecolabels are considered the most reliable for public and private sector institutional purchasers.
Coming soon, the Global Electronics Council will launch an ecolabel covering electronic components.
GEC has been audited by ANAB and received formal recognition for meeting the requirements of ISO 14024, the internationally-recognized standard for Type 1 ecolabels.

The Global Electronics Council is committed to developing lifecycle-based criteria through a balanced voluntary consensus process using an innovative process developed by GEC called the Dynamic Criteria Development Process (DCDP). The DCDP contains the five elements of a voluntary consensus process: openness, balance, due process, appeals process and consensus.
The Advisory Council, whose members are shown here, meets twice annually in person and at least twice annually via teleconference. Subgroups of the Council also meet to discuss and develop proposals on specific issues as needed. The Council operates and makes decisions primarily through a consensus-based process. Nonmembers are welcome to attend meetings by invitation. Please contact EPEAT to make arrangements to attend a meeting.
