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. For more information please visit www.greenguard.org
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.
