|GREENGUARD Certification Standards for Low-Emitting Products The GREENGUARD Environmental Institute (GEI) has established performance based standards to define goods with low chemical and particle emissions for use indoors, primarily building materials, interior furnishings, furniture, and maintenance products. The standard establishes certification procedures including test methods, allowable emissions levels, product sample collection and handling, testing type and frequency, and program application processes and acceptance. GEI certifies products across multiple industries. Please click on the following categories, available from BSI, to review their specific emissions criteria.

GREENGUARD Certification is a referenced standard for furniture and other interior product manufacturers
specified in projects based on the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental
Design (LEED®) Rating System. LEED is a voluntary, consensus-based national standard for developing
high-performance, sustainable buildings. GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified® furniture earns points
toward projects receiving certification under the LEED for Commercial Interiors, LEED for New Construction,
LEED for Core & Shell, LEED for Existing Building and LEED Canada for Commercial Interiors programs.
To achieve GREENGUARD Certification, each product must pass a series of demanding tests required by GEI
that confirms the product has low chemical emissions, which promotes better indoor air quality. GEI
monitors these products each quarter to ensure they maintain low-emitting status. GEI’s mission
is to advance public health and quality of life through programs that improve the quality of indoor air.
