The very first voluntary North American indoor air quality product certification created specifically for commercial building products, this certification requires that products meet stringent chemical emissions requirements for over 360 VOCs, plus a limit on the total of all chemical emissions combined. Products undergo routine monitoring and annual retesting to ensure continued compliance with the GREENGUARD Certification standard.
GREENGUARD Gold Certification
Developed with the specific health sensitivities of children and other vulnerable health populations in mind and based on key criteria from public health agencies, this certification sets some of the world’s most stringent emission limits on over 360 chemicals, a limit on total chemical emissions, and a limit on phthalate emissions. Products undergo routine monitoring and annual retesting to ensure continued compliance with the GREENGUARD Gold standard.
The eco-INSTITUT Certification label for low chemical emissions currently appears on more than 180 products. The certification differentiates construction products, floor coverings, mattresses, bedding, and furniture that have met leadership chemical emissions criteria as well as chemical content criteria for heavy metals, pesticides, halogenorganic compounds, and other potentially harmful chemicals. This certification has a strong reputation among the environmental community in Germany and is deemed very stringent by industry and trade associations.
