The GREENGUARD Gold Certification standard includes health-based criteria for additional chemicals and also requires lower total VOC emissions levels to help ensure that products are acceptable for use in environments like schools and healthcare facilities.
“Receiving the GREENGUARD Gold certification is a fantastic achievement,” said Becky McConnell, segment marketing manager – wide-format inkjet, FUJIFILM North America Corporation, Graphic Systems Division. “Industry regulations are ever-evolving, and Fujifilm is committed to providing low odor and low emission ink options to a variety of institutions across multiple disciplinary platforms. Ensuring our inks, in harmony with our printers, allow print providers to produce as many applications as possible and expand their client base as far as their aspirations desire is what helps Fujifilm continually innovate and bring added value to the industry.”

GREENGUARD Certification is part of UL Environment, a business unit of UL (Underwriters Laboratories). GREENGUARD Certification helps manufacturers create, and buyers identify, interior products and materials that have low chemical emissions, improving the quality of the air in which the products are used.
