Global GreenTag Certified

Global GreenTag Certified logo

Global Green Tag® is a third party, green product rating and certification system, underpinned by scientific and Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) processes. The program assesses products against worst case business as usual products in the same functional category and with the same functional purpose, based on the following impacts / benefits:

  • product synergy;
  • greenhouse emission point (ISO 14067);
  • human health & eco-toxicity (REACH and US EPA);
  • life cycle assessment (ISO 14040-44),
  • biodiversity and resource consumption
  • corporate social responsibility (Ethics, ILO, ISO 8000 & Devel Programs)

The Global Green Tag® ecolabel rating differentiates a product within the top end of the green product market by scoring, weighting and developing an EcoPOINT Score (-1 to + 1). The system provides metrics for sustainability that include 'Net Positive' impacts such as carbon sequestration, net positive biodiversity or health impacts of products.

Global Green Tag® is a registered Certification Mark in Australia and the USA.
