The label says it’s green. But how do you really know? Sustainable Solutions Corporation recently joined the ranks of third-party certifiers attempting to help confused consumers with that question through its GreenCircle Certification System, an independent, third-party certification for companies making environmental claims. Primarily aimed at construction-based companies, GreenCircle is for any organization that wants to validate its sustainability.
The certification system will evaluate companies’ products, processes or operations to substantiate claims about recycled content, renewable resources content, closed loop products, sustainable manufacturing practices, life cycle assessment optimization, carbon footprint reduction and renewable energy use.
