Global GreenTag’s LCARate has been Recognized by GBCA for Mat-3!

Date: 23.03.2012

Global GreenTagCertTM LCARate has been approved by the GBCA to certify the Green Star®* Mat-3 Recycled Content Credit in key tools. LCARate is GreenTag's life cycle assessment (LCA) based LCARate component and it is now the first LCA tool to be recognised by the GBCA.

This is a huge step forward in recognising how LCA can contribute to awarding credits within GreenStar® and demonstrate the environmental benefits of products with audited life cycle data. It further increases the relevance for a variety of products to pursue certification, even categories not currently addressed by the Material Calculators.

This news builds on the recent awarding by the Australian Consumer and Competition Commission (ACCC) for Global GreenTag, the coveted status of a National Certification Mark (CertTM) that demonstrates that Global GreenTagCertTM has been recognised by the ACCC as a competent Standard and Certifier, the first and only such award to date in the building product sector.

GreenTag is a National Certification Mark. It demonstrates that not only is GreenTag a brand of integrity but is assuming the leadership position in being able to assist innovative manufacturers in having their products recognized for their significant environmental qualities. It gives green building professionals and consumers a trusted, easy to comprehend rating system for green products.

One of the greatest things about the Global GreenTag certification is that, it now allows you to compare recycled products against regular products; giving the decision maker a common platform of comparison. So next time when you are looking to purchase or specify green building products remember to call or look for Global GreenTagCertTM Certified goods.
