About Ongreening & Product Search Engineback to top
Ongreening is a web-based, independent and comprehensive source of information on sustainable building and green building rating systems. We provide free access to a wide range of services and information, as well as access to a unique online product database with thousands of building products that are compliant with the world’s most recognised green rating systems.
Green building rating systems, such as BREEAM (Worldwide), LEED (Worldwide), Estidama (Emirates), HK Beam Plus (Hong Kong) and Green Star (Australia), are third-party assessment programmes that have been developed to help consumers determine the building’s environmental performance. Credits are awarded for green building features and strategies related to building site, water conservation, energy, building materials, comfort and the wellbeing of occupants. Building products need to respond to specific requirements in order to help contribute to the major green schemes targets and improve the building’s rating.
Our target audience comprises the most active decision makers who specify building products, including architects, green consultants, designers, specifiers, engineers, surveyors, government organisations and contractors. We are proudly connected with a global community of thousands of top professionals via our website, LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Pinterest and YouTube media channels.
Of course not! Unlike other product directories, Ongreening helps design and construction professionals to easily identify building products that are compliant with the most recognised green building rating systems. We provide users with reliable product information that demonstrates how products can contribute to LEED, BREEAM, UK Code for Sustainable Homes, Estidama, Green Star and Hong Kong Beam Plus credit goals, and therefore help projects to gain points in the certification process. We have basically removed the burden of checking product’s compliance from specifiers’ shoulders and helped to save them a lot of time that they would otherwise have spent looking for products on the web. We are very proud to be the world’s first platform to offer such innovative services.
Ongreening product database is very easy to use and can reduce the amount of time required for them to find just the right building products for their project. Thousands of building materials can be searched by entering keywords, name of product, manufacturer’s name, etc. Additional filters, such as green standards, regional materials and product category, can be used to refine the search results.
It’s free of charge to the end user. Design and construction professionals can search and have 24/7 access to reliable product information that is free.
