Global GreenTag International Joins The Health Product Declaration Collaborative

Global GreenTag International has joined forces with The Health Product Declaration® (HPD) Collaborative, escalating its commitment to industry collaboration in the US and materials transparency certifications.

HPDC is a not-for-profit, member association with over 200 organizational members, representing the full spectrum of the building industry: architects, designers, building owners, manufacturers, consultants, tool developers, standards programs and others who all share a common purpose to improve the transparency of information and the material health of the built environment.

Daniel A. Huard, CEO of Global GreenTag Americas says "becoming a member of The HPD Collaborative is a welcome step into the future for Global GreenTag. We are dedicated to ISO methodology and get to continue this pathway using The HPDC stakeholder process, working with other members to create, support and evolve the HPD Open Standard as a consensus group."

The HPDC provides that it is 'dedicated to continuously improving the building industry's performance through transparency, openness and innovation in the practices of reporting, disclosure, specification and selection of building products.'

Huard says: "Global GreenTag is truly a Global Green Product Certification Trust Brand and our clients are certainly going to benefit from this initiative with the HPDC and resultant contributions to Global Sustainability Ratings Systems; such that our clients' products are set to become even more validated in their compliance with programs like LEED, WELL, Green Star and other global sustainability ratings systems."

"This alignment with HPDC will help in that regard to ensure that we do our part for the accurate, reliable and consistent reporting of product contents and associated health information, for products used in the built environment, HPDC shares," says Huard.

David Baggs, co-founder, CEO and Program Director of Global GreenTag International added: "We had several goals in mind with this initiative. This is first to see a reasonable and practical consensus for Materials Transparency and Green Product Certification reporting to satisfy all of the respective Building Rating Systems and secondly, to continue the evolution of our protocols to aim to stay the best in the world - or as one building ratings standard officer recently said, to provide a regulatory reporting that goes further than required by even their standard."

In 2018, Global GreenTag and all its international agencies committed to directly contributing to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals for 2030. To achieve this, Global GreenTag looks forward now to working more proactively within The HPD Collaborative to continue a commitment to influence real and positive change for the betterment of material transparency across all supply chains, reduce environmental impacts that include the health and wellbeing of all life in the eco system.
