About Greenguard

 

The Greenguard Environmental Institute (GEI) was founded in 2001 with the mission of improving human health and quality of life by enhancing indoor air quality and reducing people’s exposure to chemicals and other pollutants. As an ISO-IEC Guide 65:1996 accredited, third-party organization, GEI certifies products and materials for low chemical emissions and provides a free resource for choosing healthier products and materials for indoor environments.

 

All certified products must meet stringent chemical emissions standards based on established criteria from key public health agencies. Greenguard Certification is broadly recognized and accepted by sustainable building programs and building codes worldwide. It is a not-for-profit organization that aims to protect human health by reducing peoples exposure to chemicals and other polutants.

 

Getting Certified

 

At The Durkin Company we have fully incorporated Diversey's Healthy High Performance Cleaning (HHPC) training program with the goal of Greenguard certification for all of our current accounts. The Greenguard Indoor Air Quality Certification Program gives customers the assurance that products designed for use in office environments and other indoor spaces meet strict chemical emissions limits, contributing to the creation of healthier interiors. Achieving Greenguard Certification gives credence to manufacturer’s sustainability claims, backing them with empirical scientific data from an unbiased, third-party organization.

 

Currently, The University of Massachusetts Lowell is near completion of the Greenguard program and will soon be the first college in New England to attain such credentials.

 

Through the use of products such as those seen above from Diversey our customers can bring their locations up to Greenguard's standards.
