Intertek Presents Free Webinar on Green Claims

A review of the requirements for green marketing claims

OTTAWA, Jan. 15 /CNW Telbec/ - Intertek (www.intertek.com), the leading provider of quality and safety services to a wide range of industries, will present a free one-hour online webinar on Tuesday, February 2, 2010 at 10:00 am EST / 4:00 pm CET providing an overview of environmental "green" claims. This is part of an ongoing initiative to support brands and Governments seeking to verify Green Claims.

Recent studies show that consumers continue to support companies and brands that demonstrate social and environmental responsibility and are increasingly looking for certification marks or labels on products to validate environmental credentials. Manufacturers and retail brands are under greater pressure to ensure products meet standards and have accurate test and analysis data to back up their claims.

This webinar will provide insight into the use of validated green claims as a competitive advantage. The topics will include important claims such as "lead free", "BPA free", "% recyclability", or "Verified for Substances of Very High Concern." Known standards for the US, Canada, and Europe will be reviewed as well as their relevance to Green Claims, and the appropriate steps and methodologies needed to arrive at a validated Green Claim.

If you are promoting a product using a Green Claim or thinking about applying Green Claims to your advantage, this is a 'must see' webinar. Join us on February 2, 2010 at 10:00 am EST / 4:00 pm CET for a free 1 hour webinar reviewing the requirements for green claims and how to use them to achieve a competitive advantage.

    -   What are Green Claims
    -   Types of Green Claims
    -   Verified Green Claims
