What is Green Seal?

What is GS-20?

Green Seal has awarded the first innovation certificate to Americo for Full Cycle® products. Full Cycle® floor pads with recycled fibers and Enhanced Biodegradation meet GS-20 Standard for Environmental Innovation. GS-20 identifies innovative environmental initiatives and recognizes environmental benefits of leadership products, services, processes, and technologies (collectively referred to as “initiatives”). This standard is intended for initiatives that are not covered by existing Green Seal standards. In order to get certified under GS-20, Green Seal examined the benefits in a life-cycle context and to determine whether Americo’s Full Cycle® floor pads could be considered innovative, as defined by the standard.

“Green Seal is delighted to have Americo’s Full Cycle® Floor Pads lead the way as the first products to earn GS-20 certification,” stated Arthur B. Weissman, Ph.D., Green Seal’s President and CEO. “These pads are a stellar example of what happens when sustainability, innovation, and performance combine in product design,” he added.
