What is the UNE-EN ISO 14006 standard?


Organisations are aware of the need to incorporate ecodesign to their systems. Ecodesign is a concept that gathers all design requirements to ensure that products and services can improve their environmental performance throughout their life cycle. Its first appearance was in the 90s due to the growing need to mitigate environmental impact in manufacturing and the demand for environmentally friendly products

The UNE-EN ISO 14006 standard was created to provide guidelines that help organisations to set, document, implement, maintain and continuously improve their ecodesign management. It was updated in March 2020.


Who can obtain the UNE-EN ISO 14006 certification?


Any organisation can obtain the UNE-EN ISO 14006 certification, irrespective of its type, size, or the sector in which they operate.

In fact, this system can be used by organisations that have already implemented an Environmental Management System in accordance with the ISO 14001 Standard, though it can also be used to integrate ecodesign with other management systems.

What does the UNE-EN ISO 14006 certification bring to a company?


Obtaining the ISO 14006 certification helps organisations to identify, control and improve the environmental aspects of a product/service at every one of its stages in order to minimise their environmental impact throughout their entire life cycle.

In addition, the companies that obtain this certification are able to:

  • Improve the image of their product and the organisation itself.
  • Stand out in the market due to their innovative products or services.
  • Make an effective contribution to sustainable development.
  • Reduce their costs (optimising their processes, reducing the use of materials, improving the packaging of their products, etc.).
