Crossville announces product-specific Environmental Product Declaration

Home News Crossville announces product-specific Environmental Product Declaration

Crossville, Tenn.—Officials with Crossville, Inc. have announced the unveiling of a product-specific Environmental Product Declaration (EPD). The Crossville EPD is compiled by PE International and certified by UL Environment and covers all floor and wall tile products made at Crossville’s manufacturing facilities in Crossville, Tenn.

According to Crossville’s technical director Noah Chitty, the product-specific EPD has been meticulously compiled over the course of the last year to answer the many key data points necessary. “Crossville’s modus operandi is to take a leadership role and be proactive with regard to sustainability, both in practice, as with our Tile Take-Back Program, and in certification, as with the SCS certification of our fired and wet waste recycling programs.”

For this reason, and because more credit is given in LEED for product-specific EPDs than for industry participation, Crossville chose to create its own EPD, in addition to participating in the industry EPD. Chitty added, “Creation of our own EPD also provides internal assurance that our practices are on track.”
