Update on WQA’s Sustainability Certification Program

One of ASDWA’s partner organizations, the Water Quality Association (WQA) recently launched a Sustainability Certification Program (Eco-labeling) for products that contact or treat drinking water. The program includes development of a series of standards to codify principles of sustainability and corporate responsibility into a certification framework for manufacturers, retailers and consumers in order to substantiate the environmental claims being made across the industry. The goal is to provide guidance to, and drive improvement among companies interested in pursuing a more sustainable approach to their operations and products. Please see the attached Q&A documents for information on both the February 2013 rollout of this initiative and today’s update.
