On top of the independent environmental LCA and carbon footprint assessments, we actively seek to acquire the most respected ecolabels available. Accoya has been recognized by others as an exemplary product in the field of sustainability on many occasions.

Cradle to Cradle

C2C Gold Certificate

Accoya® wood is one of the very few building products to have acquired
Cradle to CradleSM Certification on the elusive Gold level. Cradle to
Cradle (C2C) provides a means to tangibly and credibly measure
achievement in environmentally-intelligent design including the use of
environmentally safe and healthy materials and instituting strategies for
social responsibility.


PEFC certifcate
FSC® certificate

Of the various schemes for sustainable forestry available, the Forest
Stewardship Council® (FSC)® and the Programme for the Endorsement of
Forest Certification (PEFC)™ are regarded as the leading and most
comprehensive certification programs available. Both programmes not only
focus on benign environmental performance but also safeguard social
interests for all stakeholders involved. Accoya® and Tricoya® are available
in FSC® and PEFC TM.

Cradle to Cradle

Future Build

Future Build is a green building materials portal that helps architects,
engineers and contractors confidently select and source environmentally
sustainable, third party certified products. Only products that have been
assessed and selected according to stringent standards and criteria set by the
carbon neutral Masdar City, Abu Dhabi, are listed. Accoya® wood was
rated as excellent or A.

Cradle to Cradle

Summary of BREEAM
Summary of LEED V4

Of the many green building certification schemes available worldwide,
BREEAM (mainly used in Europe) and LEED (mainly used in North
America) are most widely adopted and recognised. Both are based on
various building related environmental indicators including sustainable
energy, -water and -material use. For the latter category the application of
Accoya can contribute to several credits in both schemes (BREEAM: MAT
1, MAT 5, LEEDv4: MR1, MR2, MR3, MR4 I1)

Cradle to Cradle

Singapore Greenlabel

For the South East Asian market we have attained the highly regarded
Green Label of the Singapore Environment Council (SEC), which was set
up to promote environmental awareness in this region. The ‘Green Label’
can only be obtained by compliance with the strict eco standards specified
by the SEC’s scheme and rigorous testing of the product for possible
harmful content.


Dubokeur certification

As one of the leading green labels in the Netherlands, Dubokeur certificates
are only granted to the most environmentally friendly products within a
particular application based on LCA methodology. This certification is of
particular significance to our Dutch customers, unequivocally positioning
Accoya® wood as an outstanding environmental choice.


NL Greenlabel A-label

NL GreenLabel is a sustainability label for products and services in the
exterior environment in the Netherlands. The label was developed by Nico
Wissing & Lodewijk Hoekstra in collaboration with Royal Haskoning DHV.
The label assesses products and services on seven sustainability indicators:
ourcing, composition, production, durability, maintenance, energy and end-
of-life. Accoya was given an A rating, which is the highest rating because of
its extremely high durability, low maintenance requirements and the
excellent recyclability.



Accoya® wood won the prestigious International Wood Products
Association award (IWPA) for innovative excellence in April 2011 at the
annual conference in New Orleans, Louisiana.


"The Columbus Egg"

Accsys Technologies, who manufacture Accoya, received the overall
Dutch National Award for Sustainability Innovation, “The Columbus
Egg”, and the Award for Sustainable Production Technology for
Accoya® wood. These awards are granted by the Dutch Government
and are designed to reward sustainability innovation within businesses
operating in the Netherlands.

The outstanding green credentials of Accoya®, have been officially
recognised by Europe’s Nordic nations with the award of the Svanen
Ecolabel. The label, renowned for its rigor and transparency is the
internationally recognised ecolabel for Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Iceland
and Finland and was established in 1989 by the Nordic Council of
