USDA Biobased Certification

usdacertifiedUnited States Department of Agriculture BioPreferred program:
The purpose of the USDA BioPreferred® program is to promote the increased purchase and use of biobased products. The program is expected to promote economic development, creating new jobs and providing new markets for farm commodities. To the extent that the BioPreferred® program achieves its purpose, the increased purchase of biobased products will also be expected to reduce petroleum consumption, increase the use of renewable resources, better manage the carbon cycle, and may contribute to reducing adverse environmental and health impacts.

The USDA BioPreferred® program has two major initiatives:

1. Product Labeling: USDA certifies and awards labels to qualifying products to increase consumer recognition of biobased products.

2. Federal Procurement Preference: USDA designates categories of biobased products that are afforded preference by Federal agencies when making purchasing decisions.

Certified Product Labeling: Products indicated by this symbol are USDA Certified Biobased Products.
This electronic catalog of biobased products is published by USDA’s BioPreferred® program to identify products that are eligible for preferred Federal purchasing, and to identify products whose biobased content has been independently laboratory tested and third-party certified. Company and/or product inclusion in this catalog in no way represents any actual, implied or inferred endorsement by USDA. It is suggested that Federal Government purchasers, commercial buyers, and consumers use the same care in investigating the companies listed as you would with other suppliers before signing contracts or making product purchases.

home-performance-with-energy-star-217x300Energy Star is a joint program of the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy that helps consumers identify energy-efficient products.Program Integrity: To maintain consumer trust and improve the oversight of ENERGY STAR certified products, homes, and commercial facilities, EPA has implemented third–party certification requirements and testing.

Products: To earn the label, ENERGY STAR products must be third-party certified based on testing in EPA-recognized labs. In addition to up-front testing, a percentage of all ENERGY STAR products are subject to “off–the–shelf” verification testing each year. The goal of this testing is to ensure that changes or variations in the manufacturing process do not undermine a product’s qualification with ENERGY STAR requirements.
