Green Seal has been working with businesses, institutions, and government agencies to achieve sustainability since 1989. Through standard development, certification and partnerships with facilities managers and purchasers, we’ve helped significantly reduce the environmental footprint of products and services.
Green Seal Standards
Our leadership standards for more sustainable products, services, and companies are based on life cycle research and are developed in a transparent, objective stakeholder-involved process. Green Seal standards provide specific criteria and guidelines for working toward sustainability and Green Seal certification. For more information click here.
Green Seal Certification
We offer certification for the products, services, or companies that meet Green Seal standards. The Green Seal mark on a product or operation means that we have determined through evaluation and on-site audit that the product or service has fulfilled a rigorous set of requirements designed to reduce its harmful impact on the health of people and the environment.

Green Seal has a new company-wide sustainability standard for product manufacturers. This comprehensive standard looks at a product manufacturer’s products and business practices in their totality. Companies certified to this standard demonstrate that they truly are sustainability leaders. For more information click here.
