Products Types and their approved NZGBC EcoLabels

Both Environmental Choice NZ (ECNZ) and other certifications that have passed through the NZGBC are valid ecolabels which can contribute to your final Homestar or Green Star score. Below is a list, by product type, of recognized ecolabels and approved VOC/formaldehyde schemes, all of which can contribute toward certification.
