Ontario, Canada – Stance Healthcare [Stance], a healthcare furniture manufacturer, receives MAS Certified Green® Low VOC Emitting Materials Certification.
Committed to continuous improvement in furniture sustainability, Stance voluntarily participated to have their products undergo rigorous volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions testing through the MAS Certified Green® program.
The drive behind emission testing is to limit the amount of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) released into indoor environments. VOCs include a variety of chemicals, some of which may have short- and long-term adverse health effects. Concentrations of many VOCs are consistently higher indoors (up to ten times higher) than outdoors.
Being Certified Green® is confirmation that Stance’s healthcare furniture has been thoughtfully designed and manufactured to dramatically lower chemical emissions released into the indoor healthcare environment.
“This is the future of manufacturing. We voluntarily participate in sustainability programs so that our customers know they can trust the products we are manufacturing for healthcare environments,” says President, Carl Kennedy. “When developing products, we consider the environmental impact we have and look for sustainable solutions to our manufacturing processes.”
