GreenCircle Certification will help guide and substantiate those businesses that want to keep up with the market demand for sustainable products
Royersford, PA (PRWEB) April 21, 2010
Sustainable Solutions Corporation, a leading provider of corporate sustainability programs, training and green design, announced Tuesday the launch of its GreenCircle™ Certification System, an independent, third party certification that will help organizations meet sustainability goals and increase competitive advantage.
The GreenCircle Certification System substantiates sustainability claims in the following areas: recycled content, rapidly renewable resource content, closed loop product, sustainable manufacturing practices, life cycle assessment optimized, carbon footprint reduction and renewable energy use.
“Forward-thinking companies know that, in order to stay competitive, it’s critically important to implement sustainable business practices across the board, from product design and life cycle to internal processes and operations,” said Tad Radzinski, president of Sustainable Solutions Corporation. “GreenCircle Certification will help guide and substantiate those businesses that want to keep up with the market demand for sustainable products.”
The GreenCircle Certification System includes a detailed evaluation of an organization’s product, process or operation. The evaluation can also be based on completion of a product life cycle assessment. The certification can be applied to any organization, including Walmart suppliers, to validate sustainability claims.
“The Walmart Sustainability Index is motivating a lot of companies to implement sustainable practices,” Radzinski continued. “The GreenCircle Certification will add credibility to these businesses’ efforts, which is critical in the current “green-washing” culture.
By issuing a GreenCircle Certification, Sustainable Solutions Corporation demonstrates that it has evaluated and verified the information provided by the Organization and that, based on the information received by SSC, the Company is capable of, and consistently produces, a product that is in compliance with their sustainability claim. By applying the GreenCircle Certification Mark to a product, the Organization warrants that the product or operation meets all relevant requirements of the GreenCircle Certification System for the claim.
