Home News Anderson achieves Greenguard’s Children & Schools recognition

Clinton, S.C.—All Anderson hardwood flooring products are GREENGUARD Children & Schools Certified and are now listed on the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute (GEI).

“We are pleased to be the first hardwood flooring manufacturer to earn GEI’s Greenguard Indoor Air Quality Certification on all our brands and to be recognized for meeting their prestigious Greenguard Children & Schools standard makes us even prouder,” said Don Finkell, president, Anderson. “This achievement not only reinforces Anderson’s commitment to optimum indoor air quality, but also insures these hardwood styles are eligible for low emission credit under the respective commercial and residential LEED certification programs.”

To achieve the new level of certification, Anderson hardwoods were screened for more than 10,000 different volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and were verified to meet the required California chronic reference exposure levels including 13.5 parts per billion formaldehyde. To maintain certification, Anderson’s hardwoods will be re-tested to strict standards on an ongoing basis.

“Anderson’s achievement of Greenguard Children & Schools certification demonstrates a solid commitment to occupant health and sustainability,” said Henning Bloech, executive director of GEI. “Though indoor air quality affects everyone, children are especially at risk for negative effects of chemical exposure. Selecting Children & Schools certified products is an easy way to ensure that children and other sensitive individuals are surrounded by products that have been scientifically proven to be healthier for indoor air.”
