Veteran third-party certifier Scientific Certification Systems Inc. has adopted a new corporate identity and certification mark to reflect its expanded services to the paint, coating and other industries.

The 28-year-old company is now operating under the name SCS Global Services, reflecting its position “as a global leader in third-party certification, auditing, testing and standards development in the burgeoning field of environmental, sustainability and quality performance claims.”

The company’s expanded services are detailed its new website.

Serving the Green Economy

Established in 1984 and headquartered in Emeryville, CA, SCS operates in multiple sectors of the green economy, including building, forestry, agriculture, fisheries, energy and manufactured goods.

SCS’s services include greenhouse gas inventory verification of a variety of public and private clients, including all of Longview Fibre’s facilities in Washington State.

The company has conducted greenhouse gas inventory verification (also called "carbon footprint verification"), green product verification, and similar services for a variety of manufacturing, non-profit, corporate, and government clients.

For the paint and coatings industry, services include certification/verification of indoor air quality, material content and responsible sourcing, lifecycle assessment of products and processes, green building and environmentally preferable products, and compliance with Executive Order 13514.

The company operates on six continents, with 14 strategic offices and regional representatives and an extensive network of auditors. 

“We’ve been pushing the boundaries of sustainability certification and transparency in eco-labeling from the start,” said Dr. Stanley Rhodes, SCS Global Services president and founder. 

“Our goal now, as always, is to separate facts from greenwashing hype, so that companies and organizations who are truly making a difference can gain the recognition they deserve, and help guide the transition toward a more sustainable economy.”

New Certification Mark

Along with its new trade name and corporate logo, SCS Global Services has introduced a new global certification mark, the SCS Kingfisher.

SCS Global Service's new global certification mark is the SCS Kingfisher. Some species of the bird are facing extinction.

“Kingfisher birds, ubiquitous and beloved around the world, are known for their keen vision, colorful plumage, and skillful hunting,” SCS says. “Widely recognized as indicators of environmental health, some species are now threatened with extinction.”

Dr. Robert J. Hrubes, executive vice president, said the symbol, “backed by the SCS Certified message, is a clear expression of our certified clients’ proven commitment to environmental stewardship, responsible resource management, and protection of people and communities.”  

Accreditations

SCS Global Services operates under a long list of nationally and internationally recognized accreditations, including notable programs administered by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC), US National Organic Program (NOP), Roundtable for Sustainable Biofuels (RSB), Safe Qualify Food (SQF), Global G.A.P., Verified Carbon Standard (VCS), American Carbon Registry (ACR), the Climate, Community and Biodiversity Alliance (CCBA), and the California Air Resources Board (CARB).

“The growth we have experienced speaks to the degree to which sustainability has taken center stage in industry after industry,” said Rhodes.  “As companies have discovered, this is a positive direction, both for the environment and the bottom line.”
