SCS Global Services


SCS Global Services - formerly Scientific Certification Systems, Inc. - is a leader in third-party environmental, sustainability and food quality certification, auditing, testing and standards development, working across the forestry, green building, energy, agricultural, fisheries, and consumer products sectors.

SCS partners with companies, government agencies, and stakeholders worldwide to identify and drive practices, policies and processes that advance the goals of sustainable development and give innovators a competitive advantage.

Audits, test results, and certifications conducted by a neutral third-party provide the independent perspective needed to help clients evaluate their own performance, identify improvement opportunities, and determine the best steps forward. Third-party certification also builds customer and stakeholder confidence.

SCS Global Services offers a wide range of green product certifications including single-attribute claims, multiple-attribute claims, and comprehensive cradle-to-grave life cycle assessment based claims. For more than 25 years, SCS has developed internationally recognized standards and certification programs in pursuit of the highest level of environmental performance and social accountability. Many certifications are based on innovative life cycle assessment methodology.
