Consumers today are extremely conscious about what kinds of products they’re purchasing for their bodies, homes, and businesses, and with so many choices available it’s hard to know what products may be guilty of some of the “Seven Sins of Greenwashing” — otherwise known as stating a product is generally natural, green friendly, or organic, when it has undergone zero testing or certification.
Back in the 80’s, when SCS Global Services was a start-up and everyone wanted to time travel in Doc’s DeLorean, recycled content was the cutting edge environmental technology claim pursued by innovative product and packaging manufacturers. Today’s start-ups bring us self-driving vehicles and face an increasingly complex landscape of sustainability requirements demanded by customers.
SCS, a trusted leader in third-party environmental, sustainability and food quality certification, auditing, testing and standards development, has launched its first corporate blog. The blog will serve as a content hub for individuals, corporations and organizations with an interest in sustainability in relation to Forestry, Climate, Food and Agriculture, Environmental Certifications, Auditing and more.
