Accord Australasia is the national industry association for the Australasian hygiene, cosmetic and specialty products industry. Their criteria, designed and audited by expert chemists and toxicologists, represent the ‘Environmental Credentials Scheme’ – a scheme designed to recognise environmentally responsible performance, formulation and disposal among applicants.
Castle’s Green Pro meet or exceed these criteria, signified by the ACCORD rECOgnised icon on the product labels. Castle’s GreenPro range has undergone independent third-party scientific assessment against a rigorous multiple-criteria Standard.
The Recognised® Scheme was reviewed by an independent Expert Panel of toxicologists* as a “sound and robust…science-based, targeted and pragmatic set of criteria”, coupled with a “sound and transparent” third-party scientific accreditation process.
In addition, a number of Green Pro products have been accepted by the local Government NSW and the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage Partnership, adhering to the Sustainable Choice program’s environmental protection guidelines. In Victoria, numerous Green Pro products are accepted and promoted by Eco Buy.
At Castle Chemicals, we are committed to ensuring that we fulfil the requirements of applicable Australian and International Standards, and we are guided by our company’s environmental policy and principles and guidelines of AS/NZS ISO14001:2004 – Environmental Management System.
To achieve our environmental goals, we adhere to the principle of continual improvement and prevention of pollution. We have developed a framework to ensure our activities and services comply with all applicable environmental standards and contribute to the well-being of the communities in which we operate.
