CRI sets new IAQ standard

The Carpet and Rug Institute unveiled a new Green Label Plus independent testing program for carpet that meets, and even exceeds, California's indoor environmental quality standards for low-emitting products used in commercial settings such as schools and office buildings.

Working in coordination with California's Sustainable Building Task Force and the Department of Health Services, Indoor Air Quality Section, the carpet industry voluntarily upgraded its Green Label testing program to meet or exceed existing testing protocols used by the Collaborative for High Performance Schools, designed to help achieve good indoor air quality, according to the CRI.
