Resilient Flooring: Verified and Certified!

Sustainable certifications and declarations are not all the same – some are focused on a specific criterion, such as volatile organic compounds that impact indoor air quality, whereas others contain multiple attributes within their criteria, including environmental impacts, health and wellness impacts, and social impacts. The latter are often called multi-attribute or multiple attribute certifications and are developed utilizing an ANSI consensus process. Environmental Product Declarations are the documentation of life cycle assessment results – complete for specific products as well as for a product category using industry average data. Certifications, declarations, and ecolabels provide sustainability and health and wellness information that subsequently supports requirements in building rating systems, such as LEED v4.1 BD+C and ID+C, Green Globes, and the International Green Construction Code (IgCC).

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  • Identify product ecolabels and declarations that are included within the resilient flooring product category.
  • Discuss the importance of third party verified product certifications and declarations.
  • Identify usable data provided within certifications and ecolabels to make informed sustainable product selections.
  • Find products and create a project on ecomedes material database that supports documentation required for LEED v4.1 BD+C / ID+C and Green Globes building rating systems.
