Green Certifications

Today's environment is litigious, transparent and highly competitive. Sustainability is fast becoming imperative not only to business strategy but the company’s bottom line as well. Certification is the first step to embedding, capturing, and promoting the benefits of sustainability.

 
Challenges
Sustainability is transforming the competitive landscape as companies change the way they view the business impacts to their Triple Bottom Line – People, Planet and Profit. Companies that adopt sustainable business practices and certify their efforts will enjoy a long-term competitive advantage in their industry. A respected green certification tells the values driven awareness consumer and employee that a product or business has been endorsed by a trusted source, and drives adoption of efficient business practices proven in the marketplace. The key challenge is identifying the right certification that is credible, results driven and adds value to your brand. There are numerous green certifications applicable to virtually every business, product, service and organization.

Solutions
The sheer volume of “green” certifications in the market place is evidence that there is demand for legitimate measures of eco-responsibility. The Sustainametrics team thrives in the green world and is well versed on the best of breed in terms of credibility and effectiveness for your enterprise. Sustainametrics specializes in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) and Green Seal certifications. LEED, developed by the United States Green Building Council, is the gold standard for green building construction and offers certification for both new and existing buildings. Green Seal is a highly respected science-based environmental certification that represents a mark of sustainability excellence for more than forty product categories and services. In addition, the Sustainametrics team is schooled at identifying other complimentary certifications with geographic or industry appeal. Our professionals guide you through the certification process and help devise metrics and feedback systems that drive behavior and take you beyond compliance.

Why Certify?
The green market is the fastest growing market across most industries. Researchers from J.D. Power and Associates to LOHAS indicate that the eco conscious and eco aware consumer now comprise over 80% of the population. We have reached a tipping point and consumers are voting with their dollars. While most people are still reticent to pay a premium for an eco-label or service; where price parity exists, the clear winner is the green choice. At the corporate and government level a new wave of mandates flat out excludes non-certified options. A LEED or Green Seal certification sends a very clear message. It is a mark of quality assurance and affirmation of commitment to environmental responsibility. Businesses that achieve certification identify themselves as leaders in green practices, energy and water conservation and a sustainable future.
