GREENGUARD® certification verifies that chemical and particle emissions emitted by building products and materials fall within acceptable indoor air-quality pollutant thresholds. Maximum allowable emission levels are defined by the state of Washington's indoor air-quality program for new construction, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's procurements specifications, the recommendations from the World Health Organization, Germany's Blue Angel program for electronic equipment, and LEED for New Construction and LEED for Commercial Interiors.

A large number of our textiles carry the GREENGUARD® certification. These can help to gain LEED credits if they are made from rapidly renewable content, like wool or cotton, or recycled content.
