Scientific Certification Systems has announced the first three certifications under Green Squared, the tile flooring industry’s first sustainability standard for tile and installation materials, including ceramic and glass tile, grout, mortar, backer board, underlayment, and waterproof membranes.
Developed by the Tile Council of North America, the Green Squared standard is based on five categories: a product’s environmental characteristics, innovation, manufacturing process, and end-of-life management, and the manufacturer’s corporate governance. The first three certifications were awarded to tile manufactured by Crossville, Interceramic, and Ironrock. For more information, visit www.scscertified.com/greensquared.
