It was always a pleasure dealing with the GreenTag staff, so well done to the team for offering such a consistently high level of service.
From my perspective as a customer, the feedback is all positive for you and the staff at GreenTag.Warren Stewart | Marketing Manager Commercial Industrial | Bradford Insulation Groupto GreenTag’s Lead Assessor Feb 2012.
- 28 Level A schemes 100% of Credit Points
- 8 Level B schemes and 75% of Credit Points
- 8 Level C schemes 50% of Credit Points
The other GBCA recognised schemes have at most 1 or 2 Level A or B schemes, some have only 1 Level A or B and some only 1 Level A scheme.
Only Level A Certified Products will achieve full points under the calculators. Filling in the calculators manually with key product data will no longer achieve more than 50% of credit points.
This makes GreenRate the most flexible at recognising your existing achievements in ecological, health and social sustainability in the process of being certified against relevant Green Star®* Materials Calculators, IEQ credits for VOC and Formaldehyde Minimisation and Best Practice PVC Credits.
