Chinese Certification Agency Gains Secretariat License From International Green Purchasing Network

(Yicai  Global) Nov. 26 -- China Environmental United Certification Center, a  green product certification agency affiliated with the country's  environment ministry has obtained a secretariat license from the  International Green Purchasing Network. 

The  Chinese Secretariat will give full play to IGPN's role in promoting  green procurement among government departments, non-governmental  organizations and enterprises while advocating green production and  consumption, CEC General Manager Zhang Xiaodan told Yicai Global.

Green  procurement requires government departments and organizations to  prioritize environmentally-friendly and energy-saving products that meet  national environment-protection standards when spending fiscal funds.

IGPN  is a non-governmental organization formed by green purchasing networks  in 12 countries and regions, which has led and supported several  international cooperation projects that have contributed to the  development of regional and international green procurement.

"This  marks the overseas recognition of China's work and achievements in  green procurement by, green consumption, green supply chains and other sectors," said Cheng Chunming, deputy director at the Chinese government's Environmental Development Center.
