The Environmental Innovation Program is an exciting new initiative from Green Seal. The Program uses Green Seal’s Environmental Innovation Standard (GS-20, Edition 2.0) as the framework for product manufacturers to explore environmental and health impacts, engage in transformative product innovation, and be rewarded for their achievement of significant lifecycle impact reductions through third-party certification.
Currently, the only way to earn certification under the Environmental Innovation Standard (GS-20, Edition 2.0) is by acceptance into the Environmental Innovation Beta Advisory Program.
The application window for the Environmental Innovation Beta Advisory Program is now closed. We expect to make more seats available in the program in late 2019. Please sign up for updates to be alerted about future opportunities to participate.
