Crossville, Tenn.—Crossville has released its 2016 Sustainability Report, which substantiates the value and positive impact of the company’s environmental practices.
Specifically, the report highlights Crossville’s sustainable accomplishments in product design, waste management, operations and energy consumption. It also provides a full Global Reporting Initiative Index (GRI) so those who reference the document may readily access key data and details in adherence with G4 requirements as defined by GRI.
“Being green is part of our corporate DNA—and so is being transparent about our responsible manufacturing processes,” said Lindsey Waldrep, vice president of marketing for Crossville. “It’s fitting that we’re releasing the latest version of our corporate Sustainability Report as part of our 30th anniversary year.”
In 2014, Crossville became the first tile-only manufacturer to release a third party-compiled sustainability report based on the GRI and ISO 26001 frameworks. The 2016 edition of the report is updated to reflect the latest data and details compiled with input from Crossville’s stakeholders as gleaned through a formal survey and follow-up discussions conducted by Nashville-based WAP Sustainability Consulting, the third party consulting firm. It meets the requirements of LEED V.4 MRc3 Credit.
