Recognizing Export Excellence

'As an online building product assessment database, Ecospecifier helps users to select building materials based on the assessment of their environmental and health impacts, fitness for purpose and availability. The company also operates as a green building consultancy.

'What sets Ecospecifier apart from its competitors is the assessment of products to less than 0.1 per cent of content and the verification of all manufacturer claims by third party assessors. ecospecifier also provides additional assessments undertaken against the Green Building rating tools relevant to the country or region.

'This means manufacturers are able to directly link their products to the rating systems and to the specifiers and green building professionals who will use their products. Professionals using the site receive third party advice and cut their research time by over 90 per cent.

'The products are then promoted via the Ecospecifier websites in Australia, New Zealand, the UAE, South Africa, South East Asia and China.
