WASHINGTON, Oct. 10 /CSRwire/ - The American Sustainable Business Council (ASBC) today announced that GreenStar Hub has joined ASBC, a business policy advocacy group based in Washington, DC.
"GreenStar Hub is an emerging leader in delivering market efficiencies and economies of scale for businesses through its proprietary technology. With its innovative platform we will enable ASBC to further drive a shift in the market through increased purchasing of a wide range of green products and services. We look forward to our partnership that ties tools for responsible purchasing with ASBC's focus on policy," said David Levine, CEO and Co-Founder of ASBC.
"Joining ASBC's network connects us with like-minded companies that are focused on making their businesses as sustainable as possible not just from an environmental perspective but also from a policy perspective. With technology that facilitates the aggregation of green policies and collaborative group-buying power, GSH's strengths can be leveraged by ASBC and GSH members, promoting them as advocates of sustainable policies," said Tam A. Phung, CEO and Founder of GreenStar Hub.
GreenStar Hub (GSH) is a group buy marketplace and bidding platform for sustainable products and services. GHS serves businesses and governments. GSH uses its proprietary assessment GreenStar Rating to score projects, service and projects using five leaves. Existing certifications and third-party verifications are weighted so that with just a few questions, GSH learning algorithms can assess just how green a product is. This assessment tool is intended to give the buyer an idea if something is considered green by existing standards. EnergyStar, DfE, EPEAT, EcoSense, Cradle to Cradle, UL and LEED, are just a few examples of certifications used. www.greenstarhub.com
