Use of the Green Seal Certification Mark

The Green Seal Certification Mark is a registered trademark and may only be used with the express written consent of Green Seal.

"Licensees" - product manufacturers and service providers that have been awarded certification - should refer to the applicable standard to learn how to use the Certification Mark on packaging, labels, websites, etc., and learn about the Basis of Certification Statement requirements. Licensees can approve for their marketing teams, distributors, and retailers to use the Certification Mark if they are promoting the certified product or service.

The Green Seal Certification mark is the heart of our organization - without strictly protecting its use the integrity of certification is jeopardized. As a certified product manufacturer or service provider who has worked hard to earn the Green Seal, we ask you to help us in protecting its use.
