Development of Global GreenTag was commenced in 2007 after manufacturers requested competition in environmental product certification.
A strong foundation was based on the exemplary reputation and widespread industry use of the Ecospecifier national and international databases of verified and certified products launched in 2003.
GreenTag was developed with the assistance of an AUD $220,000 grant from the Queensland Government Business and Industry Transformation Incentives (BITI) program.
As a Type 1 ecolabel externally verified to ISO 14024, GreenTag was formed with broad stakeholder engagement, International Expert Panel and a National Advisory Committee constituted by 12 representatives of academia, key manufacturing industry and professional associations, Government and community organisations and continues to be overseen by these same independent stakeholder bodies.
