Glass is inherently a non-emitting source of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs).
To promote the consideration of emissions of total volatile organic compounds and formaldehyde, as health-related impacts, in the choice of construction products.
Determining the health-related impact of construction products with respect to indoor air quality, choosing construction products to limit the health-related impact of the building and limiting pollution due to wood treatments.

- 2.4.2. Choose construction products to limit the health-related impact of the building
As glass is an inert material, it does not emit any VOCs. Because of our desire to know and limit the health impacts of our solutions, an evaluation of the VOC, formaldehyde and CMR emissions of SageGlass insulating glass was conducted under ISO 16000 by an accredited laboratory. Further, tests were carried out, and SageGlass insulating glass obtained an A+/A rating, the highest level.
