vinyl sustainability initiativeCalhoun, Ga.—Mannington Commercial has successfully met all the requirements of +Vantage Vinyl, an industry-wide vinyl sustainability initiative dedicated to advancing the U.S. vinyl industry’s commitment to sustainable development.

Companies that showcase the +Vantage Vinyl mark undergo verification by third-party GreenCircle Certified to confirm their commitment to the program’s guiding principles relating to environmental stewardship, social diligence, economic soundness, open communication and collaboration. The initiative’s structure ensures that Mannington Commercial is advancing the vinyl industry in alignment with targeted United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs).

“We achieved Silver Level verification on our first attempt, which really speaks to our level of quality and commitment to safely making durable, high-performing products,” said Mannington Commercial director of sustainability, Shane Totten, AIA. “There’s always room to improve, and we look forward to continuing to evolve our processes. This also gives us a seat at the table where we can help affect positive change across the vinyl manufacturing industry and build relationships across the value chain, making it easier, for example, to find suppliers for bio-based ingredients. We can do more through industry-wide collaborations to scale solutions than we can as an individual corporation, that’s why these partnerships are so important for us.”

+Vantage Vinyl is a vinyl sustainability initiative of the Vinyl Sustainability Council (VSC), a self-funded business council advancing sustainability in the vinyl industry. It is the only sustainability initiative that allows participation from all companies within the entire vinyl value chain with U.S. operations, ranging from raw material manufacturers and suppliers to final product manufacturers and retailers.

Congratulations to Mannington Commercial for their successful verification to +Vantage Vinyl,” said Jay Thomas, VSC executive director. “Continuous improvement of sustainability is a critical initiative of the vinyl industry. By verifying to +Vantage Vinyl, Mannington Commercial has demonstrated its commitment to the environmental, social and governance tenets of the program’s guiding principles. We look forward to our continued collaboration and partnership in the +Vantage Vinyl program.”
