Global GreenTag Certification has now formally stepped into the WELL® Building Standard ‘Equivalency’ recognition status, which means Global GreenTag Certified products with Product Health Declarations (PhDs) will now have an opportunity to step more easily into the rapidly expanding Australian WELL® market but also the USA and 30+ other countries where WELL® projects have a significant presence.

To celebrate this new WELL® recognition, Global GreenTag has decided to ‘Share the Health’ with product manufacturers by offering PhDsTMfree of charge* with new or v4.0 upgrade certifications for the month of December. “Health is the core deliverable in the WELL® equivalencies, and our PhDs make health products instantly recognisable,” says David Baggs, CEO and Program Director of Global GreenTag International.

“WELL®  is a leading tool for advancing health and well-being in buildings globally and we have decided that it is important to help manufacturers get ready to enter WELL®  projects and as fast as possible by adding a Global GreenTag PhDTM to products, which meet certain requirements.”

“To make this possible, Global GreenTag has decided to open a limited time window to apply for the Free PhDTM Offer* starting from today, December 1st until December 22nd, 2017. We are excited to offer this opportunity to assist manufacturers who are keen to submit their products for projects under the WELL® Building Standard. This move also supports WELL® Professionals implement the Standard more quickly and easily,” David said.

  • Products with current re-certification invoices that commit to re-certification under v.4.0 (no upgrade cost involved either);
