- A place for the design community to make product selections based on the sustainable attributes of a manufacturer's product.
- The information manufacturers provide on GreenFormat is structured in a spec-friendly format and can be downloaded into an RTF file.
- There is a nominal annual subscription fee to list a product on GreenFormat.
- There is no evaluation process.
- Run by BuildingGreen, LLC
- Conducts independent evaluations of products for screened listings.
- Does not charge manufacturers for listings.
|GreenFormat + GreenSpec|
- All products with a complete listing in GreenFormat will receive an evaluation for GreenSpec.
- No products, even those in GreenFormat are guaranteed GreenSpec selection—but GreenFormat-listed products will get a GreenSpec evaluation.
- If a product is not accepted into GreenSpec, your product listing through GreenFormat is not affected.
- If a product is accepted into GreenSpec, GreenSpec readers can click directly from the GreenSpec listing to detailed information in the GreenFormat listing.
|Here are the next steps in the process (read all steps before proceeding):|
