The importance of indoor air quality is becoming more evident each and every day. UL Environment works with companies to achieve sustainability goals — and help purchasers, specifiers, retailers, governments, and consumers find products they can trust that contribute to a healthier environment. Children are much more susceptible to negative health impacts as their organs and body systems are still developing. Because of this, GREENGUARD created the Gold Certification, which meets stricter standards than the GREENGUARD Certification.
Jonti-Craft’s products were the first in the industry to become GREENGUARD Gold Certified. Each and every one of our products obtained the certification without having to make adjustments to our material supplies or processes. This means that when you buy Jonti-Craft branded products, you will be, and always have been, contributing to healthier indoor air quality.
- Sustainability in schools is a fast growing market. Since 2000, the US Green Building Council’s membership has more than quadrupled.
- A typical classroom can have anywhere from 50 to 300 different chemicals present at any given moment.
- GREENGUARD Certified furniture, such as Jonti-Craft, is sometimes specified in bids and also occasionally qualifies for additional funding due to its environmental qualities.
- Approximately half of all U.S. Schools (60,000) have problems linked to poor indoor air quality.
