Green is a state of mind!
Buildings, homes and products have all sorts of green certifications available to them. It can often be confusing. But for Recreational Vehicles, there is really only one. It is 'Certified Green' by TRA Certification. RV manufacturers have begun to seek green certification for their RVs. TRA Certification introduced Green Certification to the RV industry in 2009 and have since welcomed aboard numerous maufacturers that have a sincere interest in developing their product lines with 'sustainability' in mind.
During the certification process, the manufacturing facility as well as the RV are scrutinized against a checklist of items. In the factory, the manufacturinng process as well as the materials used are evaluated. For the actual RV, the following categories are evaluated: Resource Efficiency, Energy Efficiency, Water Efficiency, Indoor Air Quality and Operation & Maintenance. Certification of the RV is offered at either Bronze, Silver, Gold or Emerald (highest) levels.
TRA Certification has been endorsed by RVDA, the National RV Dealers Association. TRA is proud of RVDA's support and look forward to continuing to work with manufacturers to build eco-friendly recreational vehicles.
