Sustainability Mark

Overview

Earn the sustainability mark on your point-of-purchase marketing materials that more and more shoppers today are looking for when they make their purchasing decision.

Did You Know?

  • According to the Fairtrade Foundation, 76 percent of consumers believe that independent certification by a third-party firm is the best way to verify the social and environmental claims of a product.
  • A study by Unilever revealed one-third of consumers are choosing to buy products that are verified as sustainable, and the trend is continuing upward.

Consumers are increasingly focused on buying green products from companies that demonstrate environmental consciousness. If your products meet certain criteria, a sustainability mark on your packaging can help your goods stand out in a crowded marketplace.

Our sustainability mark indicates to retailers, regulators, and consumers that your product has met defined environmental performance and corporate responsibility criteria.

Top reasons to consider the CSA sustainability mark for your point-of-purchase marketing materials:

  • Rely on a thorough evaluation: We’ll assess key sustainability criteria such as materials of concern, materials efficiency, energy consumption, manufacturing and operation processes, product performance, and end-of-life management
  • Trust in sustainability experts: You’ll work with a knowledgeable team of technical experts who understand sustainability and will guide you through the CSA mark
    requirements
