What is the GREENGUARD Certification?
GREENGUARD Certification shows that a product has met some of the world’s most rigorous standards for low emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into indoor air.
Consumers and builders demand safer, healthier products. The GREENGUARD Certification provides consumers and builders with solutions and resources to identify which products have lower chemical emissions. In addition, this certification provides manufacturers with tools to legitimize and promote their sustainability efforts.
Indoor air quality (IAQ) is part of everyone’s health and it is an important concern in homes, schools, healthcare environments, and commercial spaces. Volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions from building materials and furnishings are a major source of indoor air pollution. This certification has been in use for many years as the trusted standard for low-emitting products. More than 400 green building codes, standards, guidelines, and rating systems give credit for GREENGUARD certified products.
