Companies that wish to obtain the mark awarded by AISE should be subject to independent controls that demonstrate their commitment to sustainability when developing and manufacturing products. They must also provide data that allows for the measurement of economic performance and social and environmental results. In addition, they will have to make a commitment to giving information on the safety of their products to consumers and customers.

Internal benefits for your organisation:

  • It facilitates the opening of new markets sensitive to environmental issues.
  • Reduction of costs via efficient use of the resources employed.

Benefits for your clients:

  • Consumers who choose a product with this mark are opting for a company committed to sustainable development.
  • It stands out from competitors because of its distinctive logo.

The award of the Mark AISE is not only aimed at companies manufacturing soaps, detergents and cleaning products but also at distributors, packers and distribution chains.
