Centiva Announces Resilient Flooring Sustainability Certification

FLORENCE, Ala.—Centiva announces the certification of its Contour and Victory Series products to the NSF/ANSI-332 Sustainability Assessment for Resilient Floor Coverings. These products achieved the silver level certification in the NSF 332 Assessment process conducted by UL Environment.

The NSF/ANSI-332 Sustainability Assessment for Resilient Floor Coverings considers multiple attributes of the product and has prerequisites and potential points in six key areas:

  1. Product Design
  2. Product Manufacturing
  3. Long-term Value
  4. End-of-Life Management
  5. Corporate Governance
  6. Innovation

The Resilient Floor Covering Institute (RFCI) with the assistance of NSF International began developing this sustainability assessment for resilient floor covering products in 2006. A multi-stakeholder committee was formed with balanced representation from the end user, manufacturer and regulatory groups to provide the commercial market with an easy-to-understand certification for resilient flooring products. The standard allows transparency and open understanding regarding conformance requirements, providing for more understandable and meaningful marketplace comparisons.

“We are glad to have achieved certification of the products we make at our Florence, Alabama plant,” says Garth Gaffney, technical director. “Through The Centiva Green Way®, our environmental initiatives program, we’ve continuously worked on each of the six areas recognized by the NSF/ANSI-332 standard.”

“Achieving this certification is yet another milestone in the story of The Centiva Green Way®,” says Erin Dempsey, Public Relations — Environment & Strategy at Centiva. “This certification helps assure customers, designers and stakeholders that environmental impacts are being considered throughout the design, manufacturing and use of our products.”
