Draft ecomark criterion on coir and coir products

The Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change implements a Scheme on Ecolabeling environment-friendly products, covering 14 product categories. The Ecolabel, titled ‘Ecomark’ is granted to proponents who already have a product certificate mark from Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS), for a specific product. The criterion for Coir and Coir Products has been revised keeping in view the current market dynamics and consumer awareness for eco-friendly products. The Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change invites comments from the general public on the draft Ecomark criteria on Coir and Coir Products.
