Daltile CEU sustainabilityDallas, Texas— Daltile’s commercial team will launch an updated continuing education unit (CEU) on “The Tile Industry and Green Building” to show the ways tile can contribute toward green building certifications.

“Sustainability is a major focus for our commercial customers,” said Whitney Welch, vice president of commercial sales, Dal-Tile Corporation. “To best serve these customers, we have updated our CEU with complete information about our products’ sustainability attributes. As the largest manufacturer and marketer of tile in North America, we have the resources and influence to lead by example with eco-friendly choices. Through our conscientious manufacturing, we produce 100% natural, environmentally-friendly tile.”

Welch added that the company’s tiles are made from natural materials: water, clay, sand, feldspar and other minerals. “With over 98% of our manufactured tile products containing some level of pre-consumer (post-industrial) recycled materials, we have helped prevent an average of over 175 million pounds per year from ending up in our nation’s landfills. Additionally, nine of our 12 North American manufacturing plants recover and reuse 100% of the wastewater generated by the manufacturing process. In one year, we can recycle over 100 million gallons of water. In addition, our tile contains zero VOCs, PVCs, phthalates, asbestos or formaldehyde.”
