BREEAM cites FloorScore for indoor air quality

Home Press Release BREEAM cites FloorScore for indoor air quality

LaGrange, Ga.—The Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM), one of the world’s foremost environmental assessment programs for buildings, has cited FloorScore certified flooring products as eligible for credits under BREEAM’s indoor air quality requirements. FloorScore, a voluntary, independent certification program, tests vinyl (including LVT and VCT), linoleum, laminate, wood, ceramic and rubber flooring and certifies that they meet the emissions requirements of California Section 01350.

The FloorScore program is administered by the Resilient Floor Covering Institute (RFCI), a nonprofit industry organization representing more than 95% of resilient flooring marketed in North America. Certification under the FloorScore program involves product testing by independent laboratories and third-party certification by SCS Global Services. A list of FloorScore-certified products is available at rfci.com/floorscore and in the certified green products guide at scsglobalservices.com.
