The Sustainable Attributes Verification and Evaluation™ Program (SAVE™) is a new program created by ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) to provide reliable information about claims made by manufacturers of sustainable products. SAVE™, a voluntary program, provides manufacturers the opportunity to have their products evaluated by ICC-ES. The evaluation, based on guidelines for sustainability, includes inspection of the manufacturer’s production process and product testing at recognized laboratories, where applicable. The end result is a Verification of Attributes Report™ (VAR™), which provides technically accurate product information that can be helpful to those seeking to qualify for points under major green rating systems.
Mark Johnson, ICC-ES® president, says, “As the green movement continues to grow, it’s our goal to provide manufacturers such as DEMILEC (USA) LLC®, a valuable, credible resource that will help them demonstrate their continued commitment to delivering proven sustainable solutions to the industry.”
