Consumer acceptance of green products and services is contingent on providing credible data to support sustainability claims. Measuring a product's sustainability attributes is a complex process. There are a growing number of measurement methods related to content, material and energy resource use, and end-of-life. NSF's experts can assist in developing customized sustainability measurement methodologies, or technically rigorous protocols and national standards by which to verify the environmental and social claims, performance and preferability of products and services. With NSF's assistance, you can provide consumers with credible, meaningful data to support their decision to purchase green products, confident they are making a difference.
NSF International is a leading ANSI-accredited developer of more than 50 American National Standards that protect public health and the environment, including sustainability standards for building products and materials, furniture, carpet and flooring, fabrics, wallcoverings, roofing membranes, green chemicals and drinking water quality. NSF can work with your industry to develop an NSF/ANSI standard or a technically-rigorous system or product protocol that adds flexibility and meets time-to-market concerns.
