Greener Product Certification

Source

Greener Product Certification means that a product has been evaluated against the LEED, LEED for Homes and NAHB green building standards using internationally recognized third-party certification organizations, laboratory test results and/or other supporting documentation. A product achieves a Seal once it has been shown to comply with the LEED, LEED for Homes and NAHB standards.

The Greener Product Certification Seal has three purposes: Verify Compliance, Inform and Educate. Products are reviewed, evaluated and verified against the two North American green building standards - LEED and NAHB for both commercial and residential applications.

# Explain how a product may have sustainable building attributes and contribute toward earning credits in green building rating systems, including the LEED®. and NAHB Green Standards

# Review and evaluate the benefits of each product by using independent and internationally recognized third-party certifiers. Provides compliance details on how each product may meet the standard requirements of leading rating agencies i.e. LEED and NAHB.
