The Country's first Green Certification program for bio-based lubricants and bio-based solutions that set a bar for renewability, independent testing, and high performance. When most certification programs focus on being "green" they do not provide a consumer an understanding of how it performs to conventional petrochemical products. Green Shield Certification means products outperform conventional petrochemicals through independently tested standards, are certified to contain high levels of readily renewable content and provide a minimum data set to support environment safer conditions. The Green Shield Certification logo means companies have chosen to put their equipment, their employees and the environment as a priority.
So what does it mean to be Green Shield Certified?
1. Product must be a wholly or substantially composed bio-based lubricant with >60% renewable carbon content
2. Lubricant must be registered with the USDA BioPreferred catalog
3. Lubricant must have third party performance data
