Unveiling the significance of Global GreenTag Certification
Global GreenTag first developed the GreenRate™ assessment scheme to align with the green building features of the Green Star® rating tools, created by the Green Building Council of Australia and since evolved with implementation into other countries under the Green Building Councils of New Zealand and South Africa.
The Global GreenTag GreenRate™ Certificate provides several benefits:
Independent verification: The certificate is awarded by Global GreenTag, an independent, externally verified, third-party certification body that ensures products meet stringent health and sustainability criteria. This Certification gives consumers confidence that the product has undergone a rigorous assessment process.
Market differentiation: The certificate allows Tec7 products to stand out in the market by demonstrating their superior health and environmental performance compared to competitors. It provides a clear and recognisable signal to consumers, designers, and specifiers that the product is genuinely more people and eco-friendly.
Enhanced market access: Many building projects and government tenders now require products to meet specific health and sustainability standards. The Green Rate Certificate helps to gain access to these projects, expanding market potential.
Cost savings: Sustainable products often come with long-term cost savings, such as energy efficiency or reduced maintenance requirements along with faster, easier and trusted selection criteria making specification more cost efficient. The Green Rate Certificate helps consumers identify these cost-saving products, promoting their adoption and encouraging market transformation towards more sustainable practices.
Contribution to environmental protection: The GreenRate Certificate helps reduce the environmental impact of products and buildings by encouraging the use of eco-friendly materials and construction practices. This contributes to resource conservation, reduced emissions, and a healthier environment.
Overall, the Green Rate Certificate provides multiple benefits supporting a more sustainable and environmentally friendly marketplace.
