It is a certification that includes the concept of Seal and Environmental Declaration. The aim is to provide relevant, verified and comparable information on the environmental, comfort and health aspects of construction products and materials by considering varied technical and environmental criteria and an environmental product declaration. These statements are based on the life cycle assessment (LCA) of these materials and evaluate various forms of environmental impact generated by them, such as: consumption of natural resources, emission of greenhouse gases and toxic substances, among others.
What it means
This is one of the first environmental seals in execution in Brazil that requires LCA and therefore provides a more complete environmental diagnosis of the product because it evaluates different forms of environmental impact and considers several steps throughout the product life cycle. Through RGmat, manufacturers can demonstrate the environmental performance of their products, entrepreneurs and designers can choose environmentally best products and consumers can identify the most sustainable products.
