The GREENGUARD® Environmental Institute (GEI) aims to improve health and quality of life by enhancing indoor air quality and reducing exposure to chemicals and other pollutants. The GREENGUARD® Indoor Air Quality Certification Program gives assurance that products designed for use in office environments and other public indoor spaces meet strict chemical emissions limits.

Achieving a GREENGUARD® certification substantiates manufacturers’ sustainability claims with scientific data from an unbiased, third party organisation. GREENGUARD® certification verifies that chemical and particle emissions emitted by building materials fall within acceptable indoor air-quality pollutant thresholds.

Achieving GREENGUARD® certifications can, in turn, help to gain LEED credits and LEED certification for green buildings.
