  • Low or non-toxic
    Materials that emit few or no carcinogens, reproductive toxicants, or irritants as demonstrated by the manufacturer through appropriate testing.

  • Minimal chemical emissions
    Products that have minimal emissions of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs).  Products that also maximize resource and energy efficiency while reducing chemical emissions.

  • Low-VOC assembly
    Materials installed with minimal VOC-producing compounds, or no-VOC mechanical attachment methods and minimal hazards.

  • Moisture resistant
    Products and systems that resist moisture or inhibit the growth of biological contaminants in buildings. 

  • Healthfully maintained
    Materials, components, and systems that require only simple, non-toxic, or low-VOC methods of cleaning.

  • Systems or equipment
    Products that promote healthy IAQ by identifying indoor air pollutants or enhancing the air quality.
