SAFCO® PRODUCTS COMPANY ACHIEVES GREENGUARD CERTIFICATION
75% of Safco’s Product Lines are Now GREENGUARD Certified
March 2013 - Safco Products Company has achieved GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certification from UL Environment for over 75% of their product lines! Having so many product lines GREENGUARD Certified is a large accomplishment, considering Safco manufactures thousands of different SKU’s ranging from seating and flat files, to desktop organizers and tables. This milestone signifies a long-standing dedication to ensure their products meet the rigorous chemical emissions standards of the GREENGUARD Certification ProgramSM as well as their stewardship to every indoor environment their products are a part of. It’s a breath of fresh air every space can be thankful for.
As Safco expands their product lines, they continue to create a more robust offering of GREENGUARD Certified products. When products are developed, Safco begins the process of certification as a part of their ongoing sustainability initiatives. Through forward thinking, Safco continuously adds to their evergrowing list of GREENGUARD Certified workplace furnishings, tables, seating and casegoods.
Currently Safco is in the process of certifying 80 new products that were released in 2012, with 67% of these new products already certified. This ambitious effort displays their willingness to go beyond one or two certified product lines, offering a broader product selection, ensuring everyone who uses a Safco product can breathe a little easier.
“We applaud Safco on their commitment to undertaking rigourous, third-party certification for such an extensive product portfolio,” said Sara Greenstien, president of UL Environment. “Products certified to this stringent standard have been screened for more than 10,000 volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and help create healthier indoor environments.”
As an industry leader, Safco realizes the importance of working with UL Environment, one of the world’s most reputable and trusted resources on indoor air quality. By offering a large collection of GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified® products, Safco aims to set high sustainability standards. The GREENGUARD Certification Program is internationally recognized for evaluating product emissions and certifying building materials, furnishings, finishes and cleaning products and processes that meet stringent product emissions criteria set by UL Environment. Safco’s large expanse of certified products through the GREENGUARD Certification Program truly acknowledges their engagement in end-user health and workspace issues.
Safco is showing their commitment to their customers and the products they purchase by having an extensive portion of their product lines GREENGUARD Certified. Safco is also striving to become a more environmentally conscious company. With the ability to have a high percentage of their products GREENGUARD Certified, they are demonstrating their concern for every indoor environment.
