Ecolabel Sri Lanka certifies three product categories based on standards developed with lifecycle thinking ranging from the agrifood sector (Dairy, Tea) to construction materials, paint, steel, cement, and much more. All NCPC Ecolabel standards include comprehensive sustainability criteria related to the environment, human health, social issues, and fitness for purpose.
