The Argan Biosphere Reserve Ecolabel Moroccan Association (ABR.EMA) has recently been founded with the goal to certify local entities that are biodiversity friendly and meet food safety requirements. The ultimate goal of the ABR.EMA is therefore to set up a sustainable production and consumption standard in the ABR that could be progressively be expanded to the national Biosphere Reserves and eventually to the whole MAB/UNESCO world network of biosphere reserves. The ABR.EMA standard covers all domestic products and services, including among others, Argan oil, Honey, Aromatic and medicinal plants and tourism. The board of directors is composed of 15 elected members and the executive board is managed by 7 members.
