SGS, the world’s leading testing, inspection and certification company, has published a Consumer Compact article looking at the issue of belief in environmental attribute claims and why businesses need an independently verified ‘green’ mark that can be trusted.
Sustainability is now a key driver in consumer products industries. Consumers want to buy from environmentally conscious companies and are willing to pay more for goods. However, there is a problem – greenwashing!
SGS’s Consumer Compact article considers the statistics around demand for sustainable products and the solutions that are available to manufacturers and brands who want to demonstrate the veracity of their environmental attribute claims. It also looks at the benefits of SGS’s Environmental Claim Certification and Verification schemes and the power of the SGS Green Mark.
Read the original Consumer Compact article, ‘Can You Trust ‘Green’ Product Claims?’.
SGS’s Environmental Claim Certification and Verification schemes, combined with SGS Green, reinforce consumer trust in products by testing products against recognized standards. Green Marks cover six individual product attribute claims – industrial compostable, biodegradability, biobased, hazardous substance assessed, recycled content and PVC-free.
