Sustainable Certifications Group

Providing recognition for responsibly sourced products, packaging and materials.

Sustainable Certifications Group develops Certification Schemes to assure the sustainability of materials and products, whilst identifying low carbon savings.

Our team of highly experienced practitioners have over 40 years of combined experience, working with industry to implement circular economy solutions and improve circular economy application.

This allows us to provide affordable, yet robust and reliable testing processes to certify the responsible way goods are sourced, manufactured and packaged.

Our sustainability focused Certification Schemes support recyclers, manufacturers and brand owners to certify low-carbon material choices and their environmental impacts across the supply chain. This provides evidence for retailers to validate the environmental claims of the products they sell to an increasingly demanding and challenging marketplace(avoiding ‘greenwashing’), whilst effectively supporting  the route to ‘net-zero’.

Sustainably Sourced ....

Look out for the Sustainably Sourced ‘fingerprint’ logo on products and packaging, as the trusted mark of materials and products, with sustainability built into their production and environmental impacts.

Our fingerprint logo highlights that the material has been validated (using our robust audit process) to gain certification. This unique symbol also highlights the imprint we make on the environment, representing how sustainable practices across the supply chain can reduce planetary impacts for a more sustainable world.
