How EKKO score works
An EKKO score is generated when a brand declares (self declared or certified) sustainable aspects of a product. Where the brand declares their products' eco credentials and a score is provided. The EKKO score is independent of any influence such as advertisers or sponsors, and is a tool for customers to help with sustainable purchase decisions. These aspects or criteria include ten different variables:
Organic, chemical free
Re-cycle or re-marketed
Place of origin
Multi-sector and full cycled
The EKKO score is determined via an AI or machine learning algorithm that weighs each category score and certifications, guided by the UN Sustainable Development Goals. This single score (out of 100) is aggregated from the 10 different categories.
Also, there's a traffic light system:
50 or over = Eco Green
20 to 49 = Orange, worth considering
under 20 = Red, consider
There's loads of articles regarding sustainability information with products, education and industry information.
Find local producers and services
The 'Find Your Local' tool allows you to enter your location, and then identify local makers and service providers in multiple categories. The idea is that by choosing 'local' minimises environmental footprint, strengthen communities, and supports local employment.
The Recycling tool shows you what you can recycle, and where you can recycle that particular product.
This independent and valuable resource is worth a look. Check out the products and categories at EKKO
