Government Regulatory Compliance (GRC-Pirk) announced that BASF’s www.bodyshopmall.com has added a portal to assist shops in qualifying for Certified Green Investment (CGI) registration.
Mike Foldvary, BASF manager for Bodyshopmall marketing, said that as a result of adding the CGI opportunity, www.bodyshopmall.com customers will be able to identify themselves as providing “green” products and services.
“Our focus on protecting the environment and conserving energy and natural resources expands beyond product performance and reliability,” said Foldvary. “We continue to provide services and processes that give our customers the tools they need to help implement their own environmental policies and make it easier for them to identify and select the most environmentally friendly solutions available. The goal is to help our customer’s better position themselves with their consumers, who increasingly value companies that are working to minimize their impact on the planet.”
The CGI registry system serves as an official registry for emission inventories and establishes protocols for validating energy and Greenhouse Gas (GHG) reduction. The CGI program also accredits and oversees federal and state programs that track the transactions of emission inventories. GRC-Pirk says the transparency and integrity of CGI program have earned it a reputation as a respected and internationally recognized leader in climate change certification and monitoring.
“With the implementation of new legislation, pending industry regulations and a movement toward greater corporate social responsibility, we have developed an accredited process that validates various established green programs by qualifying emission factors from multiple sources. The system includes a reporting suite that enables the effective translation of data to verify tangible energy and greenhouse gas reduction requirements,” said Steven Schillinger, president GRC-Pirk.
GRC-Pirk is a professional environmental assessment company authorized to certify “green” attainment requirements that satisfy Canada’s EcoEnergy Retrofit Program and programs under the U.S. Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 per Section 179 D of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code.
