Two things you need to know

about Global GreenTag icon-tag-wo

Global GreenTag is one of the world’s most robust, trusted and widely recognised ecolabels. We independently assure that every product is fitness tested and certified under one of our two leading certification  programs that use world’s best scientific methods.

– WHY YOU NEED GREENTAG –

Buying ethical & healthy can be hard.

As a buyer, how can you be certain that the product in your hand impacts positively on the issues you care about?

As a manufacturer, how can you take all your hours of product development and pack them into a simple statement that instantly shows buyers that they can trust you?

As a specifier or designer, how can you get trustworthy information on green products fast and efficiently?

It’s really difficult.

That’s why we created GreenTag…

Genuine products need genuine recognition.

Greenwash has ruled in the eco market. Any brand can claim to be an environmental saviour with a few ‘natural’ ingredients and some sharp marketing. Buyers don’t know who to trust. Fake products in green packaging take sales away from genuinely deserving brands. The planet continues to be exploited in the name of inauthentic green design. Everyone suffers.

We created GreenTag as a tool to cut through the greenwash and empower professionals and consumers alike to confidently choose products that have been made in the most planet-friendly way possible. GreenTag takes the doubt out of buying. And because buyers know they can trust the label, genuine green products earn the greatest reward of all: trust.

To build trust in GreenTag we:

  • require full disclosure of every product ingredient and process
  • made it the most independently certified, standards compliant certification in the market.

How is it compliant?

  • Externally certified to ISO 9001 for Quality Management
  • Externally verified as compliant to:
    • ISO 14024 for Type 1 (Third Party) Eco-labels and
    • ISO 17065 for Conformance Assessment Bodies
  • Certification is compliant to ISO 14040 & ISO 14044 for LCA
  • ISO 14067 for Greenhouse Gas calculation
  • ISO 14025 for Environmental Product Declarations and
  • ISO 21930 and EN 15804 for for specific need EPDs
  • Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) and US Trade Marks & Patents Office Approved Certification Mark.

Global GreenTag International is proudly a Sponsor of the U.S. based conservation, non-profit organisation, Rainforest Trust, as part of the Trust’s Conservation Program.   As a certifier of green products, we put eco-systems high on the agenda, especially the world’s rainforests and wildlife habitats where nearly 70,000 acres of rainforests are being destroyed every day,  pushing more animals to the brink of extinction.  GreenTag is dedicated to helping to raise awareness of progressive manufacturers who are helping to lessen impacts on the environment.

Genuine problems need a genuine solution.
