Building trust in claims of product sustainability.
This is why Newleaf support their clients to ensure all claims stand up to external scrutiny and ensure that credible evidence underpins the claims being made.
Making claims about the sustainable attributes of products brings with it a greater competitive advantage but you want to be confident that the claims you make are robust and will stand up to the scrutiny that they will inevitably get. This is the benefit of third party verification.
Newleaf provides a range of verification services for green claims, codes and standards to businesses. We also work with trade bodies to develop codes and standards and verify green claims under a number of trade-focussed initiatives.
Green claims are a great way of differentiating your products and brand but if no one believes you because the claims lack credibility or are vague, more harm can be done than good. This is why Newleaf support their clients to ensure all claims stand up to external scrutiny where credible evidence underpins the claims being made.
