The legal right to display the Sustainability Registered Trademark ("Mark") is one of the benefits of having a product certified with the WQA Sustainability Program. The Sustainability Mark distinguishes products from those that have not obtained third-party certification and assures customers of the adherence to standards for sustainable practices.
WQA and its Sustainability Mark is a U.S. registered trademark of the Water Quality Association. Written authorization to apply the Sustainability Mark is sent to the company manufacturing a newly certified product when the Sustainability Certification staff has completed its evaluation of the product’s conformance to the applicable standard(s).
Unapproved use and misapplication of WQA's registered trademarks is expressly prohibited. No company or person shall apply or display the Mark in connection with a product, or represent in any way that the product is certified, without written authorization from WQA's Sustainability Certification staff.
For more information on the use of the Gold Seal Marks, please review our Sustainability Logo Policy (opens as PDF).
