Autex Industries Ltd / Autex Pty Ltd has become the first manufacturer to have ALL of their Global GreenTag International Certified Products to carry the highest award in the Global GreenTag PhD™ (Product Health Declaration™) program – a total of 11 products with PlatinumHEALTH PhDs!
Having a PhD status now enables Autex, which specialises in the development and manufacture of innovative polyester insulation products, to submit their Global GreenTag certified products into future WELL™ building projects, the global green building program, which has health as a core deliverable.
The Global GreenTag PhD tool officially became recognised by the WELL program in December 2017. GreenTag’s PhD is the first health transparency tool in the world to assess the health impacts of the final product – and not just the hazards of the ingredients.
Other key GreenTag certified products that have PhD certificates include Weathertex (PlatinumHEALTH PhD) and Amorim Wicanders (with GoldHEALTH PhD). For manufacturers, it is a bold move to fully disclose with 100 percent transparency the toxicity information of their products, but the benefit is an expanded market into WELL and LEED.
Autex Pty Ltd is the latest to make the move to PhDs and many others are following.
Autex have made a strong commitment to sustainable and healthy production processes. All of their polyester insulation products are manufactured with high recycled content of Post-Consumer and Post-Industrial origin under an integrated management system that combines strict ISO9001 quality control and ISO14001 environmental management standards.
