Who we are
ECOS is the only environmental organisation worldwide specialised in standardisation. We are an international network of members sharing a vision of a clean and healthy environment where people live in respect of the planet and its natural resources, preserving them for future generations.
ECOS, the European Environmental Citizen’s Organisation for Standardisation, promotes and defends environmental interests in the development of standards at European and international level, as well as in the development of technical environmental product policies. Thanks to nearly 20 years of experience and a strong network of members and experts, our role in these processes is highly valued and widely recognised.
ECOS is officially recognised in the EU as one of the four organisations whose work is supported to ensure standards serve society and that the European Standardisation System in legitimate. We closely cooperate with the European standardisation organisations (CEN, CENELEC, and ETSI), as well as their international counterparts (ISO and IEC).
