GreenTag has Been Recognised by the Vietnam Green Building Council
Ecospecifier is pleased to announce that the
Vietnam Green Building Council (VGBC) recognised
GreenTagTM as an ecolabelling scheme which satisfies
their requirements for Product Selection Criteria for green
buildings in their Green Building Products Database.
VGBC also promotes the use of the ecospecifier
Eco Priority Guides as a valuable source of key
'We will also take into
consideration if a product received a certification or endorsement
under an Ecolabelling scheme that is appropriate and thorough. For
example timber products certified under the FSC
scheme or a product given Singapore's Green
Label or Ecospecifier's Green Tag will be included.'
New opportunities are arising for us everyday since the launch
of our advanced third party certification system.
GreenTag™, Australia's first LCA based green
building product certification and rating system and our GreenTag™ GreenRate has Green Building Council
of Australia (GBCA) accreditation as a Third Party Certifier, is an
ISO 14024 compliant Type 1 Eco label and is certified to ISO 9001
for its overall Quality Management System.
GreenTag™ is underpinned by rigorous scientific and Life Cycle
Assessment (LCA) testing processes. Its advanced and robust LCA
certification methodology, which has been developed exclusively by
ecospecifier, is also a world first.
GreenTag™ has become the new benchmark for green products.
GreenTag™ now makes it far easier for
purchasers and specifiers to see how eco-products compare.
GreenTag™ operates on four tiers - platinum, gold, silver or
bronze - to rate and position a product at the top end of the green
building market for materials and methods. Products are assessed on
the following impacts:
- building design synergy
- greenhouse emission point
- human health & eco-toxicity
- life cycle impact
- corporate social responsibility
