Global GreenTag Awards Exclusive Mainland China Sales Agency to CBME to Provide Green Building Product Certifications to Chinese Manufacturers Exporting to the World

Media Release – March 24, 2021

The National Building Materials Exhibition and Trade Centre (CBME) the largest agency representing more than 30,000 building materials manufacturers in Mainland China has signed an exclusive Agency Agreement with Global GreenTag International, the Australian based global product certification label to certify and declare healthy, sustainable and ethical building products produced in Mainland China for export to the world.

Last week, a team from Global GreenTag International in Brisbane Australia came together online with delegates from CBME and other stakeholders in Beijing for a signing ceremony to unveil the new agreement that will be of significant benefit to building projects worldwide in the rapidly expanding green building industries and their search for trusted and certified green products.

CBME recently became authorized by the Government led National Development and Reform Commission of China to assist Chinese manufacturers to export abroad, making CBME the executive body of the China Building Materials Alliance for Global Production Capacity Cooperation.

The new agreement means that Global GreenTag’s Product Certification, Declaration and Verification programs will become integral to the new role for CBME who for 64 years have created solutions to help lead, support, and empower Mainland China’s thriving building materials industry. Under their new role, CBME will lead China’s most capable manufactures to properly prepare and certify their sustainable products for export to the world.

Highlighting also the imperative of Mainland China to prevent and control pollution in the region and achieve goals to become carbon neutral, Qu Jiaosheng, Director of CMBE stated that CBME now shoulders the important mission of leading Chinese building materials companies to “go global” and to help break green barriers in Mainland China. Mr Jiaosheng said:

“This cooperation with Global GreenTag International comes at the right time. The carbon neutral target is written into Mainland China’s five-year economic and social development plan. Actively responding to national policies, vigorously promoting green standards to Chinese building materials companies – this will be one of the most important tasks of CBME in the future.”

Mr Jiaosheng added:

“Cooperation with Global GreenTag will not only assist domestic enterprises to obtain international green label certification, we also hope that more foreign companies will obtain China’s GreenTag certifications to enter the Chinese market.”

David Baggs, CEO and Program Director of Global GreenTag International said that Global GreenTag looks forward to its new role with CBME.

“The world is currently facing an important moment, the world is undergoing tremendous changes, and a new generation of products is needed. This cooperation with CBME is also a very important decision for Global GreenTag to explore and work dynamically with the Chinese market,” said Mr Baggs.

Present at the signing ceremony were Ma Qianling, General Manager of the International Capacity Cooperation Department and Mary-Lou Kelly, Managing Director of Global GreenTag International.

Ms Kelly said:

“We are very excited that CBME has brought Global GreenTag International into their family. Mainland China represents a huge percentage of manufacturers on the Earth today and it gives us heart that sustainability is embraced as a leadership imperative in the region and the most important guide stone for the future health and preservation of the environment, wildlife, humanity and the air that we all breathe.”

Dr Judy Luo, Team Leader of Global GreenTag’s Product Assessment Team who has been leading business development for Global GreenTag in Mainland China since 2015 was also present at the signing. Commenting on the landmark agency agreement with CBME, Dr Luo said:

“The Global GreenTag Product Certification Standard is one of the most robust and advanced product certification systems in the world. We are truly ready for the job ahead to help CBME guide the progress of green materials production in Mainland China and serve the rapidly expanding global green building industries. It is also a wonderful opportunity to help educate many more people about the value and importance of accurate and third party certified product information, to legitimise Mainland Chinese manufacturers who are really green and not ‘greenwashing’ and protect the interests of consumers, globally.”
