Green Product references now cross-referenced

ICC-ES Environmental Reports now references GreenFormat, news that affects building product companies competing on the basis of environmental claims.

The ICC-ES Sustainable Attributes Verification and Evaluation (SAVE) program, from International Code Council - Evaluation Service, provides manufacturers with independent verification that their products meet specific sustainability targets defined by codes, standards and green rating systems.

GreenFormat, a program of Construction Specifications Institute (CSI), provides a uniform structure for manufacturers to report the sustainable characteristics of their products.

Collaborating with ICC-ES will increase awareness and use of GreenFormat, particularly with products compliant to the 2012 International Green Construction Code, so that professionals who select building products can make better-informed choices.
