BUILDINGS AND OPERATIONS CERTIFICATIONS
Have you integrated energy efficiency measures into your building or manufacturing facility? Have you implemented sustainable manufacturing practices into your operations? GreenCircle offers the following Buildings and Operations Certifications to verify these achievements and assist you in communicating them to the marketplace.
CARBON FOOTPRINT REDUCTION
A carbon footprint is the total amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases emitted by a facility. GreenCircle will certify an organization's claim for carbon footprint reduction based on a detailed analysis of the organization's operations, energy consumption, energy efficiency improvements, renewable energy use, and greenhouse gas emissions.
RENEWABLE ENERGY USE
Many organizations are integrating renewable energy systems into their buildings and operations to reduce life cycle impacts. The use of renewable energy can reduce the embodied energy of a product and the organization's carbon footprint. If the company still has ownership of its Renewable Energy Credits (RECs), GreenCircle can certify the carbon footprint reduction associated with this renewable energy use.
SUSTAINABLE MANUFACTURING PRACTICES
Sustainable manufacturing integrates practices that reduce the environmental impacts of the manufactured product. It can include closed-loop and industrial ecology processes; internal recycling of waste; reduction of waste and emissions; water conservation; and energy efficiency practices.
WASTE DIVERSION FROM LANDFILL
Waste Diversion from Landfill demonstrates an organization's commitment to the responsible management of end-of-life materials. GreenCircle will validate zero waste or a percentage of waste a company or manufacturing facility diverts from landfill.
