May 23, 2018, Australia – By enabling connected data exchange between Global GreenTag’s Certified Product database and GIGA’s innovative product data hub, Origin, a wide range of product certification data, Product Health Declarations (PhDs) and Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) will be made available to all users of Origin globally.
GreenTag certified products are relevant to all project teams who pursue the WELL® Building Standard, LEED®, Green Star®, RESET™ and other green project rating tools. By connecting GreenTag data to Origin, manufacturers will also be able to submit products directly to the mindful MATERIALS Library. Through connected data exchange, manufacturers’ Certification, PhD and EPD information and documentation will remain current, ensuring consistency and data correctness, delivered directly to the desks of green project professionals needing independently qualified product data.
“We are excited about what GIGA is delivering for built environment sector. Origin seamlessly connects certified product data to A&D and contractors, providing the information projects need to deliver their green rating tool and other sustainability outcomes. The ‘live’ data connectivity, workflow efficiency and direct exposure for manufacturers to project A&D teams that ORIGIN creates is unparalleled in the history of the industry and Global GreenTag is already running to deliver these connectivity benefits for our certified product clients and loyal A&D teams.”
David Baggs, GreenTag Program Director – CEO
GIGA’s Cloud Platform, Origin is a free international data hub which enables material and product data exchange between manufacturers, auditors, A+D teams and industry initiatives like the mindful MATERIALS Library. A key aim of the GIGA and GlobalGreen Tag partnership is to create a more effective pathway for Manufacturers to generate ROI for their certified products. When multiple product certification data can be sourced and managed in a single location, it is a win for the entire industry.
“I liken developing a partnership with Global GreenTag to building international product bridges via Origin. Global GreenTag’s certifications will now be more easily accessible to the entire international construction industry. Global manufacturers and project teams will greatly benefit from the increased certification exposure and the ease of data access to relevant product information when considering design decisions. This latest Origin connected data integration is another step towards providing the building industry with the broadest, agnostic set of freely available certification data.”
