Adding Product Certifications
The product module has a certifications feature available to all product module users which serves as a space to input (i.e. placeholder) ‘self verified’ product certificates. The certifications are simply an attribute to the product, and do not make any changes to the impact values. Adding certifications to a product, facilitates using the Higg Product Module as a central repository for all sustainability information related to that product.
The following list of product certifications are currently available. Additional certifications can be added in the future based on user requests.
