Achieving GREENGUARD Certification is just one of many sustainability initiatives at Bevco
Waukesha, WI – November 20, 2015 ― Bevco, a leading manufacturer of ergonomic seating solutions, is proud to announce that it has earned GREENGUARD Gold Certification for select seating products, which demonstrates that the products have low chemical emissions and do not contribute to poor indoor air quality.
“As a responsible corporate citizen, Bevco is taking steps to ensure our company and our products are environmentally responsible. While we had tracked and measured our progress internally, we felt a third party certification like UL’s GREENGUARD Certification brings credibility to our message and distinguishes our products,” said Sylvia Williams, Vice President – Sales & Marketing of Bevco.
UL’s GREENGUARD Gold Certification program addresses the human health component of sustainability and means that Bevco’s GREENGUARD Certified seating contributes to less indoor air pollution while aiding in the creation of healthier indoor environments.
To achieve GREENGUARD Gold Certification, Bevco seating products underwent rigorous testing for thousands of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). Only products that meet UL’s stringent chemical emission limits achieve GREENGUARD Gold Certification.
“UL congratulates Bevco for achieving GREENGUARD Gold Certification for their chairs, which demonstrates their commitment to creating products that do not contribute to poor indoor air quality,” said Alberto Uggetti, Vice President and General Manager of UL’s Environment & Furniture divisions.
“Companies that achieve certification for their low-emitting products help advance sustainability and indoor air quality.” UL Environment is a division of UL that works to advance global sustainability, environmental health, and safety by supporting the growth and development of environmentally preferable products, services, and organizations.
