Chapter Summary

The website of the Global Ecolabelling Network (GEN) notes that GEN is a "non-profit association of third-party, environmental performance labelling organizations founded in 1994 to improve, promote, and develop the 'ecolabelling' of products and services". In the early years GEN focused on setting up the organization, deciding on goals, aims, and direction, and began discussing and developing capacity for potential long-run strategies. GEN membership is primarily limited to national and multinational nonprofit ecolabelling organizations that act consistently within GEN's objectives as outlined in the GEN By-Laws. GEN is a corporation, whose business and affairs are managed by a Board of Directors with day-to-day operations administered by a General Affairs Office and a Secretariat. The General Affairs Office and the Secretariat, both of which report to the Board of Directors, provide administrative support to the membership and Board.
