The ISSOP seal distinguishes those organizations and companies that have made a decisive commitment to excellence in the field of sustainability, respect for the environment and for people, with the aim of promoting a change towards a new paradigm, based in an economic model where the economy for the common good and sustainability are the benchmarks.
In other words, it is about rejecting the commercial strategy of some companies of deliberately reducing the life of a product to encourage its consumption: many manufacturers program the life of their products so that in a pre-programmed period of time, they become obsolete. or useless, so that the consumer has to buy a new one.
In order to receive the seal, organizations must comply with a decalogue of good practices, among which stand out that the products are repairable at a lower cost than buying a new one or that the product guarantee has a minimum of two years required by law.
The initiative has been launched by Feniss : a Foundation that fights for a real and effective sustainable development and that was born with the vocation of being a world reference center on the need to eliminate planned obsolescence from our lives.
