The demand for sustainable products and services is accelerating - from consumers, businesses and governments. Progressive manufacturers and retailers are developing products that are safer, consume fewer resources and generate less waste.
Acceptance of green products and services hinges on the ability to provide consumers credible data that supports sustainability claims. The most valuable marketing claims are those based on national consensus standards that establish a basis for measuring a product’s sustainability performance or preferability. Independent, third-party certification bodies such as NSF measure and evaluate sustainability claims to those standards or protocols. The market also values self-declared claims made by product manufacturers. These are strengthened when supported by independent verification.
NSF offers a portfolio of services to support your sustainable product claim and certification needs.
Use of the NSF Sustainability Certified Mark is granted once certification has been completed through product evaluation, conformity assessment against standards and protocols, and production systems review. The Mark may be used on packaging, products and marketing materials differentiating your products, generating pricing power, improving market share and promoting your brand.
