SGS Hosts Free Webinars on Product Carbon Footprint Marks, June 5-7, 2012
June 5 – 7, 2012, SGS will host a series of free 45-minute webinars to introduce the new SGS Product Carbon Footprint Mark scheme. During the webinars, SGS experts will address the rise of consumer interest in environmental impact and the challenges and solutions for reducing the carbon footprint of consumer products in the global marketplace.
Registration is required.
To address growing consumer expectations for environmental transparency and to counter NGOs who point out that the claims of some companies are only “green washing,” SGS has developed a progressive three-level product marking scheme to independently assess and demonstrate a company’s environmental commitment in a manner that communicates it clearly to consumers.
June 5 – 7, 2012, SGS experts are providing five 45-minute webinars to explain the scheme at the times and in the languages shown below. Register for the webinar most convenient to you by clicking on a link below:

As a global leader in the verification of greenhouse gas emissions, SGS’s assessment is tailored to suit industry and business needs for mandatory compliance and voluntary reporting of greenhouse gas emissions. It is the first step towards developing a successful carbon strategy that will help manufacturers reduce the carbon footprint of their products and operations in general.
SGS carbon footprint services include validating your project design to ensure real, long-term and measurable emission reductions, verifying company and project monitoring systems and data to ensure that emissions and emission reductions are determined accurately in a consistent and transparent way. In addition, this SGS service can certify emission reductions for registration and trading to internationally recognized standards.
