LATICRETE was the first manufacturer of tile and stone installation materials to earn and offer the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute’s (GEI) certification. Based on criteria used by the U.S.EPA, OSHA and the USGBC’s LEED-CI program, the GREENGUARD certification provides you assurance that the specified LATICRETE® Systems meet appropriate indoor air quality standards for volatile organic compounds (VOCs), including formaldehyde.

In addition, the entire range of Laticrete GREENGUARD certified products have passed the most stringent emissions criteria to date and are now certified under GREENGUARD for Children and Schools. These products meet the product emissions criteria developed by the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute for low-emitting building materials used in daycare, K-12, and healthcare facilities. In developing these new standards, the chemical sensitivities of children and the unique building characteristics of schools were evaluated. The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) has approved GREENGUARD Children and Schools Certification as an acceptable compliance path for all low-emitting flooring credits in LEED® Rating Systems.

LATICRETE offers the most comprehensive array of products and services for your GreenMark or LEED requirements.



In Singapore, LATICRETE products have been certified by Singapore Green Building Council in 2012 and was awarded Singapore Green Products’ certification for its range of system products.
