Our design philosophy encourages sustainable decisions at each phase of the design process to reduce the negative impact on the environment while improving the overall health of the occupants. We continue to invest in better materials, methods, and manufacturing practices to foster value and innovation.
Bevco 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.
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.
The majority of BEVCO seating products are certified GREENGUARD Gold in North America.
GREENGUARD Gold Certification offers stricter certification criteria, considering safety factors to account for sensitive individuals such as children and the elderly, and ensures that our products are acceptable for use in environments such as schools and healthcare facilities.
The GREENGUARD Gold Certification requirements comply with the State of California’s Department of Public Health Services Standard Practice for Specification Section 01350 (California Section 01350) for testing chemical emissions from building products used in schools and other environments. As such, GREENGUARD Gold Certified products can be used to earn valuable credits in the CHPS Best Practices Manual for K-12 schools, the US Green Building Council’s LEED® Green Building Rating Systems, the Green Guide for Healthcare, the NAHB Green Building Guidelines, Green Globes, Regreen and many other building codes, standards and specifications.
