Global GreenTag International have for years serviced the product certification needs of large professional firms in the Government, Commercial and Infrastructure sectors and in recent years, Global GreenTag have been receiving a steadily growing interest from the general public.

We are getting calls weekly from both the industry and the general public doing renovations and materials selections with the aim of ensuring informed material selections are being undertaken with environmental, healthiness-in-use and socially ethical practices that are certified, measurable and verified against "Greenwashing"
