Home News Pergo achieves GreenGuard certification through UL Environment

Pergo, the inventor and most preferred brand of laminate flooring, today announced that its products have achieved three certifications from the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute, a division of UL Environment.  With these certifications, Pergo has further strengthened its reputation and commitment to healthy indoor environments and sustainable product innovations.

The GREENGUARD Certification Program is a broadly-recognized, industry independent program for testing and certifying products and materials for low chemical emissions. Pergo’s laminate flooring products have been awarded the GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certification and GREENGUARD Select Certification for Flooring, indicating that they meet strict requirements for maintaining healthy indoor air in education, healthcare and commercial environments. In addition, Pergo’s products have met the more stringent standards required for the GREENGUARD Children & Schools Certification, which is referenced by the Collaborative for HighPerformance Schools (CHPS) and the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Building Rating System.

“Pergo has been committed to respecting and protecting the environment for more than 30 years – by minimizing the environmental impact of both our products and our manufacturing processes,” said David Hartman, vice president, Sales for Pergo.  “The GREENGUARD Certifications provide valuable third-party verification of Pergo’s ongoing environmental efforts that benefit our customers and their communities.”
