Home Press Release Armstrong receives Governor's Award for Environmental Excellence

Lancaster, Pa. — Armstrong Flooring announced it recently received the 2014 Governor’s Award for Environmental Excellence, presented by the Pennsylvania Environmental Council, for the Armstrong Reclamation Program for Vinyl Composition Tile. According to Armstrong, the Governor’s Award is the highest Pennsylvania statewide honor bestowed upon a business or organization for environmental performance and innovation.

“We are delighted that the Armstrong Reclamation Program was recognized by the Pennsylvania Environmental Council,” said Amy Costello, sustainability manager for commercial flooring. “Armstrong considers the environment from the design of the product through the end of life, and with our reclamation program we are able to further reduce the environmental impacts of our VCT products, and this award confirms that we are on the right path.”

Designed to reduce environmental impacts, Armstrong recycles reclaimed VCT from multiple manufacturers. Not only does the company reclaim Armstrong VCT, it reclaims qualifying competitors VCT in order to keep more products out of landfills. When the program began, the Armstrong Reclamation Program for VCT was the first and only program of its kind to reclaim Armstrong VCT and qualifying competitive VCT flooring products from demolition and renovation projects, said the company. The Reclamation Program also helps reduce environmental impacts by decreasing the energy consumption, less use of natural resources and reduced gas emissions, through use of virgin raw materials.
