Successful companies use third-party certification to demonstrate accomplishments in meeting high standards of environmental stewardship and sustainability. SCS empowers manufacturers, buyers, and retailers to prove your market leadership with scientifically rigorous environmental performance-based certification and claims validation, eco brand solutions, supply chain management tools, and advanced life cycle assessment (LCA).
Third-party certification ensures your customers that the green product claims you make represent substantial environmental accomplishments. Standards address indoor air quality, recycled content, responsible sourcing, sustainable green building materials, and biodegradable cleaners.
Confirm your product's basic environmental claims and provide third-party assurance on issues of particular importance to your customers. Validation shows that your claims are backed by clear evidence through testing and documentation review.
The Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) is an internationally recognized summary report that transparently communicates the environmental performance of your products and services based on life cycle assessment (LCA).
LCA helps you understand the full range of environmental impacts associated with your products, empowering you to provide the best products and services possible with the least impacts. SCS's advanced LCA metrics are used by companies around the world, and are driving innovative environmental improvements in processes and systems.
Develop and administer a robust ecolabel brand program that delivers what your consumers need through program rule establishment, staff and vendor training, data collection, management and validation. SCS will help customize a program for your retail operation.
SCS certifications, verifications, and validations help you position yourself as a preferred supplier to U.S. federal agencies as they fulfill EO 13514 requirements.
SCS offers continuing education units (CEUs) to increase understanding of sustainability issues specific to built environments, and LCA training for companies seeking to implement an in-house LCA program.
