In addition, China Environmental United Certification Center won “2017 GEC Catalyst Award Finalist” for leadership and innovation in supply chain sustainability in June, which was organized by the Green Electronics Council (GEC) of the United States.

    As the institution implementing China Environmental Labelling Program, China Environmental United Certification Center (CEC) has been engaging in environmental labeling and promoting both research and practice on green supply chain and green consumption over the past years. China has released 20 issues of “List of Environmental Labelling Products for Government Procurement” since 2006 with commencement of “China Government Procurement of Environmental Labelling Products”, involving over 280,000 product models of 60 product categories and over 3000 enterprises. According to the statistics of Ministry of Finance, the total volume of government procurement of environmental labeling products in China was 715.45 billion Yuan RMB during 2008~2015 with continuous rise of the percent in government procurement of the similar products. In 2015 alone, green government procurement of environment-labelling products such as furniture, computer, printer and copier could save over 100 million Yuan RMB for direct treatment of pollutants.

    The international recognition of China’s practice in environmental labeling fully indicates that the implementation of China’s List on Government Procurement of Environmental Labelling Products has quite big positive impacts on the environment, economy and society and plays a guiding role in final achievement of green procurement and green consumption. CEC will keep on its efforts and make greater contributions to sustainable development.
