ECORESPONSIBLETM Attestation – ECODESIGNED Product, in order to:
- Make a sustainable development approach and certification process available to businesses and stop “greenwashing” and self-reporting;
- Support the sustainable development and certification approach, and make expert resources in the field available to businesses;
