The Footprint Progress is a result driven certification that enables Sicomin to inform contractors and customers about their products' environmental impact throughout the product lifecycle. The certification proves that Sicomin’s bio-based epoxy systems are eco-designed and have limited environmental impact compared to standard epoxy formulation.

The Footprint Progress process consists of two levels: commitment to eco-design and product certification. After an intense three-year audit programme in accordance with international standards such as ISO 14062, ISO 14006 and EN ISO 14040/44 Sicomin’s GreenPoxy products have been certified, which allows the company to display the official, widely recognised Footprint Progress logo on their Greenpoxy range. This logo is issued by Bureau Veritas, a leader in certification of Environmental Management Systems accredited by over 60 bodies internationally.
