Global GreenTag International gathered for the launch of its first venture into Mainland China last month to begin growing business in the region with our partners – Ecosafene Products Technical Service Co., Ltd. Together, we met with delegations from a number of key government and private companies in cities across the region, as well as visiting the huge DOMOTEX asia/ CHINAFLOOR expo in Shanghai.
For the trip, hosted by Ecosafene’s Technical Director Cricket Liu, the Global GreenTag team involved Global GreenTag’s CEO and Technical Director David Baggs, GreenTag’s Managing Director Mary-Lou Kelly and China Business Development Manager Dr Judy Luo for manufacturers based in Mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan. David Baggs says:
“We have made a number of previous visits but launching our first venture has been a great success. We met with some very forward thinking companies and government departments. There is a strong focus on the protection of the environment and human health and better still, it is government led. Ecosafene are proving to be a valuable partner for Global GreenTag to grow in the region and assist with certification needs that are designed specifically to align with the major green building rating programs.”
“The global green building industry is a trillion dollar market and our mission is to keep expanding access for progressive product manufacturers with Global GreenTag product certification into green building projects, registered with the leading programs like WELL Building Standard®, LEED®, BREEAM® and Green Star®.
“Our mission with Ecosafene is two-fold: to add to our growing list of progressive manufacturers from the Mainland China region and help them understand how certification will support their export efforts as well as contribute to their own growing green building industry; and to help expand markets for our other manufacturers with Global GreenTag certified products, from outside of the region, and support promotion of their products for use on projects within Mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan.”
Managing Director Mary-Lou Kelly added: “We did some great training with the team in Mainland China. It all went incredibly well. Importantly, we also had some truly inspiring meetings with government bodies who were impressed by the Global GreenTag Certification Standard, as a way to advance their plans towards sustainable development.”
