Global GreenTag International’s regional leaders and exclusive sales agencies have been very busy in 2021. A significant list of new manufacturers have signed up to certify, declare and verify their sustainable products and materials under the Global GreenTag Certification Standard.
The upward trend for the Global GreenTag brand and its comprehensive services has been very reassuring, indicating a growing market in green procurement and demand for a certification program that both manufacturers and industry professionals trust and require,” says Brett Hazlett, Global GreenTag International’s Global Business Development Manager.
“We have grown significantly in new sales despite the impact of COVID. In large part this is due to our investment in expanding Global GreenTag’s now stellar global network of leaders and specialist sales agencies, which are enlisted by Global GreenTag International’s CEO David Baggs.”
“Finding the right fit of organisations and specialists for such a niche area as certification is of vital importance and David who is also Program Director of the Global GreenTag CertTM Product Certification system has made some great decisions to bring in fresh new leaders and agencies with exactly the right fit.”
Global GreenTag International leaders today represent territories including Africa, Mainland China, South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Malaysia, USA, Canada and Latin America. All come with great industry experience and specialisation in a range of fields, including product certification and testing, sustainable architecture and engineering, sustainability and environmental consulting and product procurement support, many with Accredited Professional status with the leading global green building rating schemes, including WELL™ and LEED®.
