The extraordinary General Assembly of natureplus Association approves divestment of business operations for certification.
Parallel to BAU 2017 trade fair in Munich the natureplus Association organized an extraordinary General Assembly with only one topic: the divestment of the business operations for certification to a natureplus certification institute in legal form of an European Cooperative Society (SCE). The detachment of the certification activities will advantage and enforce both organizations: The new cooperative society, founded with the proven partner institutes in certification services, will focus on improvement of the certification assessments and aims to achieve accreditation for EN 17065. The natureplus Association as pure non-profit environmental organization will focus on scientific development, information and growing political influence. The Assembly supported unanimously these plans.
The foundation of the natureplus certification institute (SCE) is intended for the month of March 2017. In summer 2017 the new society will take over completely certification assessments and label award for the natureplus label. The institute will improve rules and regulations (natureplus certification manual) for better competitiveness and effectiveness and try to raise synergy effects with other assessments on behalf of the customers. Most important is the aim of getting accreditation for EN 17065, an USP in the label landscape.
The natureplus Association plans to change its constitution at the regular General Assembly in May 2017 to get better reputation as non-profit organization. It will intensify its international approach and the mobilization of its members, will focus on research and development on criteria for sustainable building products, information and education to public and experts, cooperation with other sustainable building organizations, political lobbying for the natureplus label and public grant projects fundraising.
