As part of its commitment to quality and ongoing sustainability initiatives, Plasti-Fab has recently received GreenGuard Certification for its EPS insulation products. The certification has been accredited by UL Environment, an independent global safety science organization which continues to help companies for more than century by assisting with their process and procedures in accordance with established environment and safety standards.
Benefits of the Program
The GreenGuard Certification Program provides you with the confidence that the products made for use in indoor spaces meet strict chemical emissions limits, which provides healthier interiors. This means that manufacturers are able to develop and consumers are able to identify products and materials having low chemical emissions which helps improve air quality and the environment as a whole.
Achieving GreenGuard Certification adds credibility to a manufacturers’ sustainability claims, supporting them with scientific firsthand data from an unbiased, third-party organization.
When a manufacturer begins the process of GreenGuard Certification, UL Environment works closely with the manufacturer to create a specialized certification plan that takes into consideration their certification targets, unique product line, manufacturing procedures. A technical account manager offers dedicated customer service during the entirety of the certification process to ensure efficiency and accessibility for daily concerns. Final certification will involve submitting to the UL Environment the Application, Certification Plan and the Compliance Path. Certification will be awarded once all these requirements are met.
