Good Environmental Choice Australia (GECA) Standard
This standard identifies environmental, quality, regulatory and social criteria that the top products sold in the Australian marketplace can meet in order to be recognised by GECA as “environmentally preferable”. The primary purpose of this standard is to define environmental performance criteria for products made from recycled content materials. Recycled products may be environmentally preferable based on reduced demand for virgin materials and reduced amounts of waste going to landfill.
The standard is applicable to the following categories of recycled/reused content products:
Glass, Plastics, Rubber, Timber, Fill and foundation materials such as sand and gravel
