The organisation provides certified product information to help consumers, architects and builders discern between product claims when looking for products with reduced environmental impact, so they can make informed choices.

‘Greenwashing’ is an ever-present issue in consumer markets – where any brand can call themselves “eco-friendly” with no evidence to back up their claims.
Having a Global GreenTagCertTM certification means that you can be sure that any claims about environmental impact and sustainability by a brand are legitimate, and that the product has been rated on multiple facets of environmental responsibility.
At Ekodeck, one of our core business principles is the fact that all our composite products contain up to 90% reclaimed timber and recycled HDPE (high-density polyethylene).
Having a Global GreenTagCertTM GreenRateTM Level C certification on our Classic decking means that you can be sure that Ekodeck Classic is recognised as a ‘Sustainable Products’ for it’s recycled content and no toxicity in use.
We’re always striving towards being better for the environment, and by obtaining a Global GreenTagCertTM certification, it signifies that our products have met certain standards related to environmental impact and sustainability, so we can work towards a greener future.
