Ann Arbor, Mich.—NSF International certified Mannington Commercial as the first manufacturer to comply with its new standard for resilient flooring, passed just last month (FCNews, May 3/10). NSF/ANSI 332, Sustainability Assessment Standard for Resilient Floor Coverings, outlines criteria to promote sustainable manufacturing processes with a four-level point system—Conformant, Silver, Gold and Platinum—and Mannington’s Inlaid and Premium Tile products earned Gold certification based on product design; product manufacturing; long-term value; end-of-life management; corporate governance and innovation.

“Mannington is the first to achieve certification under this standard,” said Petie Davis, manager of NSF International’s sustainability services, “demonstrating their commitment to environmental stewardship.”

The mill’s Premium Tile was determined to be the only VCT in the industry with 25% post-consumer recycled content, mainly recycled VCT and drywall from demolition and renovation projects.

“These products are the first certified to the new standard and we are already working on others,” said Dave Kitts, Manningotn’s vice president, Environment. “One of the benefits of the NSF standard is that everything is measurable, documented and proven. Sustainability cannot only be about good intentions; it must also include measurable indexes. Better products—meaning innovative, improved products with a smaller environmental impact—will become the rule rather than the exception. In order to truly change the way our industry thinks and manufactures, actions must speak louder than words.”
