Degree of Green (R) product rating sheets are at the heart of the Degree of Green system. Product ratings are based on a panel of nationally recognized experts in green and healthy home building products and environments.
The Degree of Green ratings designate the degree to which the rated product stacks up against traditional materials as well as other green products in the same category.
There are many reasons why a product is considered green. The Degree of Green™ program allows consumers to choose what green attributes are most important to them, then act as their guide toward their needs and desires.
The rating sheets judge products in three areas:
- Human Health
- Environmental Health
