We are a distributor in Peru for a German producer of seating furniture and we are applying for Leed's credits in the following categories: New Construction(NC), Retail(RE), Schools(SC), Commercial Interiors (CI) and Healthcare (HC).
There are credits that involves Cradle to cradle and Greenguard certifications specifically: ID Furniture GreenGuard Certified, ID Furniture GreenGuard certified and Enviromentally Friendly, ID Furniture-GreenGuard and FSC Certified. These are american certifications, which we don't count with, however, we count with European certifications LGA and Blue Angel, with superior standards than the ones evaluated by Cradle to cradle and Greenguard, something that Leed representatives acknowledges. However, they said that the LGA and Blue Angel certification can not be validated/homologated.
Our question is if there are ANY products worldwide (most probably European products) where the Blue Angel and LGA certifications has been homologated/accredited to obtain Greenguard or Cradle to Cradle certification or any other information that will help us getting those European Certifications validated by the representatives here in Perú.
It is extremely important for our business here to get these LEED Credits and knowing this information will be extremely valuable for us.

Sandra, I'm not aware of this... it would take some dedicated research to answer the question, as you indicate.
