GREENGUARD Certification ensures that a product has met some of the world’s most rigorous and comprehensive standards for low emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into indoor air.
Indoor air quality (IAQ) is closely tied to health, it’s an important concern in homes, schools, healthcare environments and commercial spaces. VOC emissions from building materials and furnishings is a major source of indoor air pollution. GREENGUARD Certification provides the market with solutions and resources to identify products with low chemical emissions, and provides manufacturers with credible tools to legitimize and promote their sustainability efforts.
GREENGUARD Certification has been widely adopted as a trusted standard for low-emitting products. Our criteria have been the basis for the LEED credit for low emitting furniture since 2002. Learn more at GREENGUARD.COM.
