Manufactures and Suppliers have been bombarded with certifications, declarations and labels for over a decade. Determining which one to pursue can be a formidable task without proper council.
Health Product Declaration (HPDs), Environmental Declarations (EPDs), Cradle to Cradle Certification (C2C), C2C Material Health Certification, Declare, Living Product Certification, ANSI/BIFMA Level, Greenscreen and Facts are merely a few. Why try to navigate these on your own when you have a versed professional in A Greener Space to help you?
A Greener Space has consulted manufacturers the world over for their Declare labels and has successfully submitted more than a dozen labels since the program's inception in multiple languages including Mandarin and Japanese. A Greener Space is one of only three approved third-party assessors qualified by the ILFI for Declare verification.
A Greener Space has reviewed and submitted HPDs on behalf of manufacturers since the program launched its first version at Greenbuild in 2011 in both English and Mandarin. Additionally, our team was part of the pilot review for the current version 2.0.
A Greener Space has deep understanding and experience with the EPD process, including management of international teams. A Greener Space authored two EPDs for one of the world's largest manufacturers of resilient flooring and was one of the first EPDs in China to use regionalized data in its LCA.
A Greener Space has also advised on the development of two globally-recognized Product Category Rules (PCRs), the first component and building block of the EPD process.
C2C Certification™ and C2C Material Health Certificate™
C2C certification is a means for manufacturers to communicate their work towards chemically-optimized products and to demonstrate ongoing improvements. A Greener Space can help educate and direct your team towards your C2C goals, lending critical advise as to your product's viability as a contender for the C2C program.
Living Product Challenge™
The Living Product Challenge is to products what the Living Building Challenge is to buildings; a framework for manufacturers to create products that are healthy, inspirational and give back to the environment. Manufacturers are using the concept of "hand printing" instead of foot printing to evaluate their products and create a positive impact.
A Greener Space is proud to be a part of the LPC Ecosystem and approved LPC Assessor by the ILFI.
