THE GROWING MARKETPLACE FOR GREEN PRODUCTS IS
Consumers are demanding that the products
they buy and the companies they buy from be environmentally responsible.
Our professional staff possesses the necessary knowledge to assist your
efforts in this constantly changing market place. TP currently offers third
party auditing programs that cover the NAHB - National Green Building
Program and the SFI Chain of Custody Program.
Chain-of-custody certification is a tool used to track certified wood fiber through the different stages of production to the end user. This program promotes sustainability of the forest products we use every day and provides the consumer assurances that the forest based materials they buy are from legal and responsible sources. TP’s SFI Chain of Custody program is accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).
Any company that processes or trades SFI-certified forest products, including manufacturers of forest products, paper merchants, converters, wood dealers, wood yards, wholesalers, brokers and printers can seek SFI chain-of-custody certification. They must have processes such as inventory control, employee training, reporting and invoicing so they can track raw materials from certified forests through production and manufacturing to the end product. Many businesses with more than one location have received certification covering multiple sites.
TP offers consulting for any green building project (NAHB Green Building Standard, LEED, Energy Star, etc.), performance testing, and verification services for the NAHB Green Building Standard.
The National Green Building Standard (the Standard) is a residential green building rating system. The Standard goes beyond the requirements of the International Residential Code to set green baselines for all new residential construction, development, and remodeling projects. It establishes green practices for all residential building and development including single-family homes, multifamily residential buildings, mixed use residential, residential remodeling and additions, and land development.
