Green Label for Products and Services

A Green Label is a label which identifies overall, proven environmental preference of a product or service within a specific product/service category.

A Green Label, granted jointly by the Israel Standards Institution and the Ministry of Environmental Protection, attests to the fact that a product’s or service’s harm to the environment is less.

In a world with continual growth in environmental awareness, we all understand the power of our impact on the environment in which we live. A reduction in harm to the environment can be accomplished, among other ways, through the use of environmentally-friendly products and services.

A product or service with a Green Label reduces use of hazardous materials, improves energy efficiency, and more.

The Green Label represents for the manufacturer or service provider a marketing advantage over competitors in the field, as it is an objective certification that the product or service is, in fact, “environmental” and not making a false claim (Green wash).

Advantages of the Green Label:

  • Encourages the design, manufacture, marketing, and use of products and services such that minimal damage to the environment will be caused, or such that environmental quality will be improved, at the various stages of the product's or service's lifecycle.
  • Enables consumers to identify environmentally-friendly products or services, and encourages them to give preference to such products or services over others, while this environmental friendliness will not impact the main product or service characteristics, their safety or their quality.
  • The Israel Standards Institution is a member of the international organization GEN, which unifies dozens of eco-labeling organizations throughout the world. As a direct result of this, there is a possibility of mutual international recognition.
  • Distinguishes between the misleading labeling and labeling approved.
  • Enables point accumulation in green construction.
