Sicomin have been awarded the Bureau Veritas Footprint Progress Certification for their GreenPoxy products range.
The Footprint Progress is a result driven certification that enables Sicomin to inform contractors and customers about their products' environmental impact throughout the product life cycle. The certification proves that Sicomin’s bio-based epoxy systems are eco-designed and have limited environmental impact compared to standard epoxy formulation.
The Footprint Progress logo
The Footprint Progress process consists of two levels: commitment to eco-design and product certification. After an intense three-year audit program in accordance with international standards such as ISO 14062, ISO 14006 and EN ISO 14040/44, Sicomin’s GreenPoxy products have been certified which allows the company to display the official, widely recognised Footprint Progress logo on their Greenpoxy range. This logo is issued by Bureau Veritas, a leader in certification of Environmental Management Systems accredited by over 60 bodies internationally.
The certification applies to the following GreenPoxy products:
Bio-based epoxies on today’s industrialists’ agenda
“The Bureau Veritas certification shows that Sicomin’s eco-design strategy is successful and that bio-based epoxy chemistry can be on today’s industrialists’ agenda. We will continue to apply our certified eco-design approach on all new products and, when possible, will redesign existing products to further reduce our impact on the environment compared to conventional epoxy production,” comments Philippe Marcovich, President, Sicomin.
