Eco Choice Aotearoa (previously Environmental Choice New Zealand) is New Zealand’s official, not-for-profit ecolabel, endorsed by the Ministry for the Environment. The Eco Choice Aotearoa label identifies products and services that are better for the planet and safer for people.

ECA only awards its ecolabel to products and services that pass strict criteria and onsite audits. The requirements are based on the lifecycle of a product or service and its effects on the environment.  Some Eco Choice standards also include modern slavery and social accountability requirements.

Tonkin + Taylor has a longstanding relationship with the New Zealand Ecolabelling Trust, providing verification assessments and technical support for the Eco Choice programme for over 20 years.
