There is a rapidly growing demand by consumers and home builders for products that are manufactured by organizations with environmentally responsible and sustainable processes. As such, there has been a steady increase in the number of environmentally-approved certification programs for different products within the home – be it furniture, flooring, walls, roofing or even cabinets. With so many different certification programs available these days, it is difficult to determine which one fulfills the requirements consumers and home builders are looking for.
THE KCMA ESP SEAL COVERS ALL THE BASES
The KCMA Environmental Stewardship Program Seal covers the major areas that many consumers and home builders are concerned with – Green, sustainability, responsibility and healthy home. In fact, companies that earn the KCMA ESP Seal have to prove their compliance in five different areas: air quality & pollution prevention, resource sustainability, waste minimization, environmental stewardship and community relations. By earning points throughout these five areas, companies prove that they are concerned not just with the specifics of the products themselves, but how their organization as a whole impacts the environment and how they can help make a positive difference in the world.
THE ESP SEAL GIVES YOU A COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE
The KCMA ESP Certification doesn’t just focus on one specific area of environmental responsibility, because in order for a company to truly say they are committed to the environment, they can’t just worry about air quality, or just worry about resource sustainability. Every part of the company needs to work together to ensure that the organization does not have a negative impact on the environment, and works hard to protect and sustain the earth. This gives companies that earn the KCMA ESP Seal a distinct advantage in today’s competitive marketplace, because they are able to prove to their customers that their concern is not just for consumers’ healthy homes, but for the long-term impact on the environment.
