It is a member of the Multi-stakeholder Advisory Committee (MAC) of the Consumer Information for Sustainable Production and Consumption UN One Planet Work Program (CI-SCP). We cooperate with international experts as part of the One Planet Network program.
Our experts constantly monitor the implementation of green public procurement and participate in international programs to improve competence in this area. Based on this knowledge, we conduct training sessions and seminars for public sector representatives and prepare methodological materials in Russian.
Our organisation works closely with retail representatives to increase responsible consumption awareness in society. In 2021 the Ecological Union developed a standard for stores, retail chains and online venues.
Currently, the Ecological Union has 27 standards based on the lifecycle concept. Vitality Leaf ecolabel can be given to retail chains, household chemicals, reusable bags, leather and textile products, fertilisers, etc. Also, about two dozen new standards are being developed by Ecological Union experts.
