Product Category Rules – GreenTag Wants Your Say

170410 _have_your_say 600x200

Global GreenTag currently has 7 Building PCRs (Product Category Rules) ready to release for public review.

As stakeholders, we invite you to participate in this public consultation to help us finalise our next set of Building PCRs in collaboration with the Evah Institute.

PCRs are important as they underpin our ISO 14025 and EN 15804 compliant Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) program that runs in accordance with GreenTag’s Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) reporting processes.

PCRs determine what product information should be gathered, how that information should be evaluated, and how it should be presented in a form of environmental declaration.

Of course, this process of defining PCRs to building products, eventually supports the task of industry professionals globally who are working on projects under building schemes, including Green Star,  LEEDv4 compliant (currently used in 140+ countries) and BREEAM compliant (used in 40+ countries).

The Global GreenTag PCR public consultation will take place over a 30 day period, commencing March 20, 2017 and closing April 20, 2017.  It will address the following 7 PCR building product areas:

  • Furniture
  • Wet Area Wall Cladding
  • Wet Area Floor Covering
  • Flood Coverings
  • Thermal Insulation
  • Acoustic Insulation
  • Boiled, Chilled and Filtered Potable Water Systems
