GREENGUARD Works to Support Safe & Healthy Schools

June 1, 2007

GREENGUARD Environmental Institute (GEI) recently announced an agreement with Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS) to recognize its GREENGUARD Children & SchoolsSM Product Certification Program as a strategy for supporting the CHPS best practices manual for K-12 schools. "GEI and CHPS were both founded on the premise that environments in which we live and breathe must be healthier and more sustainable," says Carl Smith, GEI's CEO. "Schools, where our children spend much of their time, must be at the top of our list of environmental priorities." Under this agreement, the GREENGUARD program complies with the State of California's Department of Health Services Standard Practice (CA Section 01350) for testing chemical emissions from building products used in schools. Both organizations share a strong commitment to improving schools as healthy learning environments. For more information, go to or visit
