From green office supplies to good indoor air quality to using green building materials in a renovation, green building products are directly affecting the health and environment of people working or living inside the building.
Moreover, building materials, like concrete and steel, are one of the most energy consuming and carbon intensive materials. Therefore, in order to cope with global challenge to reduce carbon emissions and energy consumption, procuring and using green building products will definitely be helping the planet.

Products certified together under one of the "Recognised Worldwide Certifications or Programmes" can be put under the same submission.
For example: If a product series of say 20 has been certified under a green labelling scheme, Eco-Product Directory recognises the same series with 20 products.
