Canon Europe becomes affiliate member of the Global Ecolabelling Network

by Madaline Dunn

Canon Europe has been accepted as an affiliate member of the Global Ecolabelling Network, it has shared.

The organisation is a non-profit association of third-party, environmental performance recognition, certification and labelling organisations, while ecolabelling is a voluntary method of environmental performance certification and labelling practised globally.

It identifies products or services proven to be environmentally preferable within a specific category.

Members of the Network have ecolabels that are certified against science-based standards and have attained the status of Type 1 according to ISO 14024:2018 Environmental Labels and Declarations.

Through its membership, Canon Europe will now offer labels certified by an impartial third party for products or services independently determined to meet transparent environmental leadership criteria.

This, it was shared, is based on life cycle considerations as well as multiple environmental and health issues, including toxicity, air quality, energy and water use, recyclability, use of natural resources and other areas of concern.

Speaking about the announcement, Craig Woodburn, Senior Sustainability Operations Manager at Canon Europe, said: “We are proud that Canon Europe has been accepted as a member of the Global Ecolabelling Network. As a company we are committed to protecting the global environment by reducing the impact of our products. We are pleased that this accreditation is elevating our efforts as we progress on our path towards achieving our sustainability goals whilst ensuring we are responsible and compliant with our products.”

“The Global Ecolabelling Network is thrilled to welcome Canon Europe as our newest Affiliate member. It is a critical time for supply chains -all the way from manufacturing to certification to collaborate- to work together in order to optimise solutions and best practice for sustainability. We look forward to working with Canon to better understanding together the opportunities and challenges of ensuring products deliver for people and planet with every purchase. Thanks again to Canon Europe for their leadership and commitment,” added Kate Harris, Secretariat at Global Ecolabelling Network.
