Award Recognizes Innovation and Forward-Thinking in the Built Environment

SCS Global Services (SCS), an international leader in third-party certification of environmental and sustainability achievements, has been named one of US Builders Review’s 2016 Editor’s Choice honorees in the run-up to GreenBuild 2016. US Builders Review selected SCS as one of its 2016 Editor's Choice companies due in large part to the innovations and forward-thinking nature of the company as it concerns the built environment.  As an honoree, SCS is featured in US Builder Review’s Greenbuild Special Edition 2016.

SCS has been at the forefront of independent certification and standards development since its founding in 1984, with a focus on the built environment since the early 1990s.  Over the decades, SCS has played a pivotal role in the green building movement, assuring the reliability of product claims to support informed purchase decisions, and helping companies gain a better understanding of the life cycle impacts of their production processes and supply chains.

“As a neutral third-party, we provide the independent perspective needed to conduct credible certification audits, help clients evaluate their own performance, identify improvement opportunities, and build customer confidence,” said Stanley Rhodes, SCS CEO.

Thousands of companies around the globe have sought SCS certifications for accomplishments such as responsible forest management, conformance with stringent indoor air quality standards, use of recycled materials, responsible sourcing of metals and materials, climate footprints and offset credits, Environmental Product Declarations, and Health Product Declarations.  SCS is an accredited certification body for BIFMA level®, Green Squared®, FloorScore®, NSF/ANSI 140, NSF/ANSI 332, NSF/ANSI 336 “Facts”, Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Forest Management and Chain of Custody, and more.
