Our purpose is to create solutions for sustainable consumption and production.
 

Transparent and independently audited for ultimate peace of mind when purchasing

Since 2000 we’ve been dedicated to enabling architects, specifiers, procurement professionals and consumers to make good choices for their clients and the environment.

Our scheme was the first of its kind in Australia, and has more Australian certified products than any other scheme. We empower architects, builders, designers and consumers to have confidence in their purchasing decisions, and trust GECA certified products to be healthier, safer, and better for the environment.

We’ve developed our own rigorous standards, following ISO 14024 principles for global best practise in ecolabelling, which are then independently audited by JAS-ANZ accredited Conformance Assessment Bodies before a product can achieve GECA certification.

Why we need GECA certified products and services

In the past, unsustainable actions have had a negative impact on the environment, and unless we act now these changes will only become worse. We want to live and work in clean, healthy, environmentally responsible spaces, and thankfully GECA can help you achieve this.

We’re keeping up with the latest in sustainability to show manufacturers how to best to create green products. And at the same time we’re showing consumers across Australia how easy it is to make a good choice, with our easily recognisable and trustworthy ecolabel.

What our clients say about us

The entire everroll range of rubber flooring is certified under the Good Environmental Choice Australia (GECA) Floor Covering Standard. It achieves a Level A 100 per cent item score in the GBCA Fitout Calculators Guide v1 for Flooring. We chose to become GECA certified because we feel that it is important to communicate to consumers that we take environmental responsibility seriously and GECA helps us do this. As well as its sustainable properties, everroll offers architects and designers other benefits including durability, sound absorption, slip resistance, modular designs, aesthetic appeal and comfort.

When Sheldon Commercial Interiors was appointed to design the new offices for world renowned company Faber-Castell it was excited by the opportunity to incorporate the bright palette of colours in a bold new interior. The new fit-out also presented a great opportunity for designer Tara Gunasekera to incorporate environmentally sustainable design initiatives including the specification of a great range of GECA certified products including the innovative Logic system. Using environmentally preferable GECA certified products is something we try to achieve as often as possible. We recognise the importance of introducing better products for the environment in the commercial sphere and this is integral to our design philosophy.

Fitting out such a large project with sustainably preferable furniture is rewarding. That a well-renowned and international company would choose to use GECA certified Office Link Group furniture is exciting and without doubt, a step in the right direction for improving sustainability in the workplace. The whole work zone looks great — the architect has done a wonderful job of creating the space. With the addition of the sustainably preferable products that are proven to improve the health and wellbeing of those in the workspace, it is now a really nice place to work.

Vern Currie
OFFICE LINK GROUP

Being an environmentally aware business, we needed a way to ensure, adhere and implement sustainably preferable strategies into our business plan. The team at GECA is co-operative and their guidance ensured that we not only complied with green standards, but exceeded them. The process is credible and well-received in the market place and ensures that we are set apart from the not-so-genuine ‘greenwashing’ companies.
