The "Air Label Score" certification body is made up of a group of indoor air quality experts whose mission is to protect indoor air quality.
Our task is to protect indoor air
In order to prevent poor indoor air quality, “Air Label Score” focuses on several objectives:
- Guaranteeing consumers the least emissive products
- Encouraging industry to develop products with lower emissions
- Raising public awareness of indoor air pollution and the steps to be taken
- Getting the authorities to act on the issue
It is essential for a label to be independent of any interest group in order to remain objective. This is why “Air Label Score” maintains its independence on all levels:
- Governments and institutions: the label does not receive any institutional funding and is not therefore influenced by any interest group;
- Laboratories: in order not to be both judge and jury, the label works with independent laboratories.
A team with more than 10 years’ experience
“Air Label Score” experts have been involved for many years in the problems associated with indoor air quality.
In order to ensure lower emissions from products, the experts are certified by the IRES (French institute for economic and social research) and supported by the world’s best laboratories accredited by COFRAC (the French national institution accreditation body which is involved in assessing compliance in France), BELAC (the Belgian body) and ISO (the International Standardization Organisation of 165 pays).
An issue addressed at source
More and more studies are being published on the issue; yes, the air in our homes is more polluted than the air outside. This is the case even in large cities.
Faced with this problem, not enough solutions have been implemented by the authorities, and these tackle pollution a posteriori.
This is why “Air Label Score” decided to tackle the problem at source, by informing consumers and helping them select products with low emissions for their homes.
