Sustainable Consumption Requires Assurances

Sustainability is a major competitive advantage in the consumer world. This is evident from the vast array of seals indicating sustainable materials, products and packaging. Nevertheless, consumers are becoming increasingly watchful: what criteria does a seal fulfill and which interest group is behind it?

Sustainable products depend on sustainable materials, packaging and suppliers. TÜV Rheinland sets the right priorities to give you assurance:

  • Laboratory analyses
  • Product checks
  • Monitoring
  • Competence training
  • Conformity consultancy

Sustainable materials

Evaluating and handling materials require analytical, legal, and practical skills. To support you here, TÜV Rheinland provides laboratories, consultancy, training, and certification. Our services support the handling of hazardous materials, including food contact materials, and safeguard you against unintended additives.

Sustainable products

Sustainable products go hand in hand with an awareness of product life-cycle management. Our services cover everything from optimizing manufacturing processes through to durability and recyclability, and provide industry-specific assurance in sustainable product development.

Sustainable packaging

A sustainable product includes sustainable packaging free of harmful substances that does not interfere with the packaged contents. Our services analyze the packaging composition in a laboratory, test the behavior of packaging under a wide range of influences, and certify its sustainability from its production through to its recycling or environmentally sound disposal.

Resource awareness and the circular economy

Plastic in the oceans and increasingly scarce raw materials requires a rethinking on how we use resources. How can waste be avoided or returned to the economy for recycling? We support you on your path to sustainability by providing services such as the testing of biodegradable materials, monitoring of product life cycles, and certification of bio-based, compostable, and recycled food contact materials.
