National Tent House Achieves GRS Certification

Global recycled standard

We are thrilled to announce that National Tent House has achieved the prestigious Global Recycled Standard (GRS) certification. This milestone underscores our unwavering commitment to sustainability and responsible production practices. Furthermore, it reinforces our dedication to contributing to the UN Global Impact and its mission to create a more sustainable future. As we celebrate this achievement, let’s delve into what GRS certification entails and why it is crucial for future relief items production.

What is GRS Certification?

The Global Recycled Standard (GRS) is an international, voluntary, full-product standard that sets requirements for third-party certification of recycled content, chain of custody, social and environmental practices, and chemical restrictions. It ensures that the protocols and guidelines align with industry standards across various applications. Therefore, achieving this certification has multiple benefits for the organization along with the key stakeholders. 


Why GRS Certification Matters

Benefit of GRS certification

Here are some benefits of Global Recycled Standards Certification for Key Stakeholders of the Humanitarian Industry

Environmental Impact

GRS certification promotes a Circular Economy which ultimately leads to responsible utilization of resources, reduction in waste, and recycling of existing resources. Additionally, GRS certification ensures that the production facility does not adversely impact the environment and that products meet rigorous standards for recycled content, significantly reducing the reliance on virgin materials. Therefore, achieving this certification is a testament to National Tent House’s Environmental Management System (EMS) and our ongoing efforts to minimize the environmental footprint of the production process by reusing materials, conserving resources and reducing waste.


Supply Chain Transparency

One of the core aspects of GRS is its traceability. Certified products undergo a stringent verification process that tracks the recycled material from the source to the final product. Thus, our implemented systems ensure a transparent supply chain that tracks and traces recycled input materials throughout our manufacturing process of Core Relief Items. As a result, our customers can choose products that align with their sustainability goals and promote sustainable manufacturing practices.


Social Responsibility

Beyond environmental concerns, the GRS certification also includes criteria for social responsibility. This encompasses fair labor practices, safe working conditions, and respect for workers’ rights, ensuring that the people behind the products are treated ethically. National Tent House is a Sedex-certified company highlighting compliance with GRS social criteria and supporting the principles of the United Nations Global Compact.


At National Tent House, obtaining GRS certification is also a strong testament to our dedication to UN Sustainable Development Goals 13 (Climate Action) and 15 (Life on Land). This certification not only promotes transparency in the supply chain but also stands as a symbol of accountability and innovation fostering positive change toward a more environmentally conscious future. 

For our partners, the GRS label guarantees benefits that adhere to high standards of recycled content and responsible, eco-friendly production practices to feed our mutual goals of combating climate change. By choosing National Tent House as your Humanitarian Aid partner, you can trust a manufacturer of relief products who takes complete social and environmental responsibility. The Global Standards Recycled (GRS) certification also proves that National Tent House greatly contributes to an eco-friendly and environmentally responsible future.
