Environmental and quality labels: OWA’s proven commitment !
The OWA brand is strongly committed to sustainable development initiatives. We offer remanufactured consumables, providing greener alternatives for your printing needs. Today, we are the only brand on the print market to have two eco-labels, proving the quality of our products and enabling you to reduce your ecological footprint.
What is an eco-label?
It is a sign of strong commitment, and your guarantee of an eco-friendly purchase.
Eco-labels are official means of recognition, certifying compliance with environmental standards. They guarantee strict requirements in terms of environmental impact. They provide a point of reference for users seeking to adopt more responsible approaches to consumption and reduce environmental impact compared to traditional market products. Eco-labels are issued by independent organisations.
Why choose products with eco-label certifications?
- By purchasing a certified product you can be sure that the product is eco-friendly and reliable.
- The label means that the product is manufactured under a verified production process.
- Performance testing proves that the quality of the product is similar to that of a traditional market product.
There are a wide variety of eco-labels with different meanings. For our premium OWA brand, we have the following two eco-labels:
The OWA brand’s eco-labels
The NF Environment standard is a voluntary certification symbol. It is a French eco-label. The NF-Environment symbol certifies products which have reduced environmental impact compared to similar products on the market.
As proof of our commitment, we undertake a new audit every year or 2 years (depending on the outcome of the previous audit), in order to be certified once again, and since 2018 we have always successfully obtained this certification. We apply the same principle with Scandinavian and German standards.
The Nordic label is the official eco-label of Scandinavian countries, awarded to products which meet specific environmental protection criteria. The label attests to our eco-friendly production methods.
We have been certified since 2008.
