Ann Arbor, Mich.—NSF Sustainability, a division of global independent public health organization NSF International, has verified an environmental product declaration (EPD) for a variety of nylon carpet styles and colors manufactured by Mannington Commercial and backed with its rEvolve modular backing system.

“As one of the first companies in their industry to release a third-party verified EPD, Mannington is demonstrating their commitment to environmental stewardship and transparency in addition to being positioned to win the business of major governmental agencies and environmentally responsible companies with green purchasing requirements,” said Tom Bruursema, general manager of NSF International’s sustainability division.

NSF Sustainability provides independent and science based verification of EPDs, which offer an international standard of communicating a product’s environmental impact throughout its entire life cycle from cradle to grave. EPDs are recognized globally, and as a preferred reporting tool in the new LEED V4 Green Building Rating System Standard Drafts expected out later this year.

“By releasing an NSF Sustainability-verified EPD, we are able to effectively accentuate our Mannington rEvolve modular carpet tiles in the marketplace and respond to increasing customer demands for more environmentally sustainable products and transparency in environmental claims,” said Dave Kitts, vice president, environment at Mannington.

Mannington Commercial’s rEvolve system is constructed of a thermoplastic polyolefin and provides an alternative to vinyl backing for specifiers seeking options for high performance carpet backing. Additionally, rEvolve carpet tiles are certified to NSF/ANSI 140 Sustainability Assessment for Carpet to the Platinum (highest) level.
