There are 400+ Green Products Seals & Certifications

As environmental responsibility becomes standard business practice, industries are scrambling to get the message to consumers about how Green their products are.

Seals and certifications are helpful, but the process can be cumbersome and costly. Some businesses use them as another form of green washing.

The AV industry, with the EPA and other government and professional organizations, is working to develop guidelines that are practical for industry performance and directed toward sustainable environmental goals.

Learn more about Green AV Guidelines at the November 17th Webinar.
