Whether in a home, workplace, school or office, people are spending less time outside. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA), exposure to indoor air pollutants may be two to five times higher than the levels usually found in outdoor air, and can adversely affect health and productivity. Fortunately, there are things we can do to address some of the more common indoor air pollutants.

The UL Environment GREENGUARD Certification program, a unit of Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL), requires compliance to stringent emissions standards that are broadly recognized and accepted by sustainable building programs and building codes around the world. GREENGUARD Certification helps consumers choose building materials with lower VOC (volatile organic compound) emissions, which improves indoor air quality.
