RCS – The Recycled Claim Standard

GRITTI VIETNAM Co, Ltd. is the first company in Vietnam obtaining the Recycled Claim Standard (RCS) certificate for polyester buttons produced with a special polyester resin made of 20% recycled plastic bottles.

Our certificate is available upon request.

 

The Recycled Claim Standard (RCS) is an international, voluntary standard that sets requirements for third-party certification of Recycled input and chain of custody. The goal of the RCS is to increase the use of Recycled materials. The objectives of the RCS are: 

• Alignment of Recycled definitions across multiple applications.

• Track and trace Recycled input materials.

• Provide consumers (both brands and end consumers) with a tool to make informed decisions.

• Provide assurance that materials are actually Recycled and in a final product. The Recycled Claim Standard is intended for use with any product that contains at least 5% Recycled Material.

Each stage of production is required to be certified, beginning at the recycling stage and ending at the last seller in the final business-to-business transaction.
