Protecting the planet

with innovative,

sustainable solutions

Resilient flooring is not only a great choice for versatile, cost effective flooring solutions – it’s also a great choice for the environment. New innovations are continually being introduced to improve product recycling, indoor air quality, lower VOC emissions, and contribute to a healthier planet.

RFCI is leading the way in sustainability with our popular FloorScore® program, the new NSF 332 Sustainability Assessment for Resilient Flooring , a multi-attribute, Life Cycle Assessment based program, and Environmental Product Declaration (EPD).
