Frequently Asked Questions

Greenwashing is a term used to describe the practice of making exaggerated or false claims about a product’s environmental or social benefits. It can be difficult for consumers to distinguish between genuine sustainability claims and those that are simply marketing ploys.

Brands often engage in greenwashing when they make broad or vague sustainability claims without providing specific details or evidence to back them up. For example, a brand might claim that their product is “eco-friendly” or “sustainably made” without providing any information about the specific environmental or social impacts of the product or the production process.

To avoid greenwashing, it’s essential to use third-party certifications and audits to verify sustainability claims. At Global Measure, we provide a comprehensive certification process that ensure your brand’s sustainability claims are accurate and transparent. By using our services, you can demonstrate your brand’s commitment to sustainability while building trust with your customers.

We’ll guide you through the certification process, answering any questions you may have along the way, and ensuring that you have all the information you need to make informed decisions.

As a certified brand, you’ll receive a unique code for each certified product that you can proudly display on your product tag or on a separate tag. This code serves as a visible symbol of your commitment to sustainability and responsible production practices.

Your customers can easily verify your product’s certification status by visiting Global Measure’s website or by scanning the QR code on the tag. This not only assures customers of your product’s quality and sustainability but also helps build trust and credibility for your brand.
