Global GreenTag Joins ECO Platform

Global GreenTag International has joined the global ECO Platform with the aim of gaining ECO EPD Program Operator recognition and status for our EN 15804 +A2 EPDs and facilitate the delivery of harmonized digital EPDs.

The world of Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) is changing fast and to stay in touch and contribute to this process Global GreenTag has joined the ECO Platform.

ECO Platform is an umbrella organization supporting various national EPD Program Operators in Europe and elsewhere. It supports the creation of a Core EPD system based on the EN 15804 standard as it is being implemented, globally.

Global GreenTag is an established EPD Program Operator (PO) with increasing EPD relevance beyond Australia. It joins the ECO Platform in the membership category of 'Emerging Program Operator', allowing GreenTag to commence immediately the process of validating its EPD program against ECO Platform requirements, and seeks to gain recognition as an ECO EPD recognized PO from the platform in a timely manner.

With the vision that EPDs are the preferred mode of communication within an industry focused on decarbonization, circular economy and nature positive manufacturing outcomes, Global GreenTag's main objectives are to:

1. ensure it's clients that wish to enter the European Market will have their EPDs recognized within the European Community and more broadly, including within green project rating tools and credits that require EN 15804 +A2 version compliance;

2. ensure current, and future compatibility with global EPD standards, particularly as they develop; and

3. facilitate the delivery, standardization and harmonization of the digitalization of EPDs and the LCA data therein into the future, as LCA data gets more complex and EPDs become more automated and machine readable.

Commenting recently, Dr Nana Bortsie-Aryee, Manager of the Global GreenTag EPD Program, and a qualified verifier for third party program peer review with the International EPD Program, said that "joining the ECO Platform will increase the transparency and portability of our client EPDs, and make our EPDs stronger as a meaningful tool to identify product impacts, assist projects reduce upfront carbon and reduce overall impacts in their procurement".
