Interface Adopts New EPD Transparency Brief for its Floor Covering Products
- May 21, 2012
La Grange, Ga.—An unshakable advocate of EPDs (Environmental Product Declarations) for its products, with 90 percent of its portfolio covered by the sustainability documentation, Interface is now the first floor coverings manufacturer to adopt the newest assurance of transparency: The EPD Transparency Brief.
Likened to a nutrition label, it summarizes the environmental impact and health of the company’s carpet tiles in a one-sheet that is intended to become a global industry standard and a tool for customers to understand, compare and contrast the values of a product’s lifecycle-based environmental impact to another’s.
This simplified, at-a-glance Brief was developed by UL Environment in partnership with Perkins+Will.
