GREENGUARD Gold Certification

Republic’s complete line of products achieves GREENGUARD Gold Certification


UL Environment's GREENGUARD Certification program helps manufacturers create - and helps buyers identify and trust - interior products and materials that have low chemical emissions, improving the quality of the air in which the products are used. All certified products must meet stringent emissions standards based on established chemical exposure criteria.

UL applauds Republic Storage’s achievement of UL GREENGUARD Gold Certification for their locker, shelving, and storage systems.

"Achieving GREENGUARD Certification indicates a product's compliance with strict third-party product emissions standards, and products that have lower chemical emissions can contribute to healthier indoor air quality." said Alberto Uggetti, Vice President and General Manager, UL furniture division.

Achieving GREENGUARD Gold Certification demonstrates Republic Storage Product's firm commitment to the health and safety of the product users, and to our environment.

UL Environment, a business unit of UL (Underwriters Laboratories), acquired GREENGUARD in 2011, further advancing its mission of promoting global sustainability, environmental health, and safety. GREENGUARD Certification is broadly recognized and accepted by sustainable building programs and building codes around the world. Additionally, the GREENGUARD Product Guide serves as a free online tool for finding certified low-emitting products for offices, hospitals, schools, homes, and more.

GREENGUARD Gold Certification (formerly known as GREENGUARD Children & Schools Certification) offers stricter certification criteria, considers safety factors to account for sensitive individuals (such as children and the elderly), and ensures that a product is acceptable for use in environments such as schools and healthcare facilities. It is referenced by both The Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS) and the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Building Rating System.

View Republic's GREENGUARD Certified products in the GREENGUARD Product Guide. All products have been screened for more than 10,000 chemicals.

Each certified product listing contains a certificate of compliance, which streamlines the verification and paperwork required for LEED® and other sustainable building programs.
