Congratulations to Global GreenTag for the relauch of CarbonRATE™ - a unique peer reviewed Embodied Carbon Product Certification Program.  According to Daniel A. Huard, CEO of Global GreenTag Americas, "CarbonRATE™ has been upgraded to strongly challenge the market to design, manufacture and use only products that can scientifically identify carbon impacts and benefits.”

The Global GreenTag International team was on hand at Greenbuild this week to share more information about the program.  David Baggs, Program Director and CEO of Global GreenTag International explained that GreenTag’s new CarbonRATE™  “is deeper detailed to help accelerate a bold climate positive agenda."  He adds,  "Our core mission to help protect and regenerate natural resources firmly sits behind this new set of carbon labelling and metrics.” 

The CarbonRATE program is rolling out for products undergoing GreenTag’s EPD (Environmental Product Declaration) and LCARate certification programs.

Mr. Baggs adds: “What we want is for each CarbonRate TAG issued to tell the whole carbon story behind the full life cycle of each product.” This level of information will be particularly of interest to companies and projects whose policies are now focused on reaching low carbon and zero carbon targets.
