An extension of the ACCS program, the Carpet Institute of Australia also run the Environmental Certification Scheme (ECS), which looks at the environmental performance of a carpet.
As a prerequisite for the ECS program, carpet manufacturers must comply with the Code of Practice for Environmental Management (including performance criteria for raw materials, the manufacturing process, the carpet during its use and at the end of its life.
The ECS program has four levels of certification with Level 4 being the highest standard. This stringent program is a GBCA approved third party, with Green Star Level 4 certification providing at least a minimum of 7 Green Star credit points.
The green and black labels identify carpets that have been certified under the Environmental Certification Scheme (ECS)
