United States Green Building Council

We pride ourselves on environmental awareness and responsibility in the supply and aftercare of our floor covering products worldwide, with all our factories certified to ISO 14001 International Environmental Management Standard.

Our products have been reviewed by a third party Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED) rating Accredited Professional.

The United States Green Building Council’s LEED rating system is the nationally recognized benchmark for sustainability in buildings, providing third-party verification. The United States Green Building Council is a membership-based non-profit organization made up of tens of thousands of member organisations, chapters and volunteers committed to promoting sustainability in the way buildings and communities are designed, built and operated.

Our Designflooring products can enable project teams to earn credits for the LEED® Certification of New Construction (NC), Homes (H), Commercial Interiors (CI) or Existing Buildings (EB).
