Dalton, Ga.—Novalis Innovative Flooring achieved Global GreenTag’s GreenRate certification. Novalis loose lay tile, high density core (HDC) and glue down are now GreenRate Level A certified. The Novalis products gained certification after undergoing a rigorous material health, environmental compliance, ethical labor and supply chain audit, the company said.
The Global GreenTag GreenRate program rates products to Levels A, B or C. The certification decision is based on a multi-attribute assessment of the product. The assessment measures human health impacts, ecotoxicity, resource use, waste reduction, energy and water footprints and more. The GreenRate Level A certified label is recognized by LEED, WELL, Green Star and other green building standards.
The Novalis products have achieved the certification under the latest version 4.0 standard, meaning they achieve 100% of the credit points available under the Green Star Sustainable Product standard, widely recognized in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and elsewhere. This certification is the latest representation of Novalis’ commitment to remain at the forefront of product and operational sustainability in the built environment and to empower customers with greater transparency and assurance around the company’s commitment to keeping humans healthy and the earth habitable, the company said.
