The Environmental Innovation Program is a revolutionary new certification program designed for manufacturers striving to advance product innovation for environmental good. Participants work collaboratively with Green Seal to explore environmental and health impacts, engage in transformative product innovation, and be rewarded for their achievement of significant lifecycle impact reductions. The Program uses Green Seal’s Environmental Innovation Standard (GS-20, Edition 2.1) as a basis for certification. Submit an Expression of Interest Form today.
