Self-declared Environmental Claims according to ISO 14021

ISO 14021 specifies requirements for Self-declared Environmental Claims, including written, symbolic, and graphic declarations on products. It also describes selected terms commonly used in environmental declarations and makes requirements for the extent to which they are used. This standard also describes general audits and verification methodologies for environmental self-declaration, character assessment and verification methods for the forms declared in this standard assuring credibility in environmental claims made by manufacturers, importers, distributors, retailers or by anyone who benefits from such claims.

AJA Europe has prepared a product certification scheme through which it verifies the compliance of the “Self-Declared Environmental Claims” to the UNI EN ISO 14021: 2016 standard.
