Intertek's Green Leaf Mark is a consumer product and systems verification used to demonstrate that environmental claims have been independently verified.
The process to obtain Intertek’s Green Leaf Mark verification is a straightforward, three-step process consisting of application, evaluation and testing and verification phases.
