What Are Environmental Claims?

Customers are increasingly overwhelmed by the onslaught of products alleging to be “green” or “good for the environment” or making unsubstantiated performance claims. As the market for environmentally friendly products grows, so does the need for reliable and verifiable claims. The NSF Sustainability Environmental Claims Validation Program provides third-party verified information for products and processes.

Environmental or performance claims can include:

  • Recycled content
  • Landfill-free verification
  • Eco-efficiency
  • Biodegradable
  • Compostable
  • Flushable
  • Bio-based material
  • And more!

Benefits of Validation

Third-party validation is an important tool to gain consumer trust and meet regulatory guidelines or requirements. NSF Sustainability provides organizations and manufacturers with an important tool for communicating credible, third-party verified environmental or performance information about their products or processes. The value of product claims rests on the assurance that the information presented is reliable and trustworthy.
