Proven low environmental impact
Many of our products, including each of our gluedown and Designflooring LooseLay ranges have an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD). An EPD is an independently verified and registered objective report based on a life cycle assessment (LCA) that communicates transparent and comparable information about the life cycle environmental impact of products including: global warming potential; ozone depletion potential, and fossil fuel depletion potential.
For more information view our Environmental Product Declaration for Gluedown and LooseLay.
The Building Research Establishment (BRE) has undertaken its own LCA and our products also have generic ratings in the BRE Green Guide of A/A+ for use in health, education, commercial, retail and domestic sectors.
Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) is the most widely used building environmental certification programme in the world. It rewards best in class building strategies and practices, through a system of points and sets stringent criteria which building projects must meet in order to achieve LEED certification. In so doing, this allows specifiers to select the most sustainable options for their project. Our products achieve points by virtue of specific EPDs, contribution to indoor air quality, recycled/reusable content and sustainable materials content.
All Designflooring products qualify for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED version v4.1) points.
