Greenguard Certification

GREENGUARD UL2818 gold logo

Founded in 2001, GREENGUARD Environmental Institute (GEI) is an industry-independent, non-profit organization that oversees the GREENGUARD Certification ProgramSM.

The GREENGUARD Certification ProgramSM is a testing program for low-emitting products and materials, while the GREENGUARD Children & SchoolsSM standard evaluates the sensitive nature of school populations combined with the unique building characteristics found in schools, and presents the most rigorous product emissions criteria to date.

The GEI's mission is to protect human health and quality of life through programs that improve indoor air that people breathe. As an ANSI Accredited Standards Developer, GEI establishes acceptable indoor environmental standards for building materials, furnishings, electronic equipment, and construction practices. The GREENGUARD Building Construction Program was established in 2006 as a best practice to prevent moisture and mold growth in new construction and is on track to become a National ANSI Standard in 2009. GREENGUARD Certification is broadly recognized and accepted by a number of "green" building programs, including the United States Green Building Council's (USGBC) LEED program.

An online guide to Registered and Certified buildings and GREENGUARD Certified products is available at no charge at www.greenguard.org.
