York Wallcoverings announces that a range of its wallcoverings, distributed by MDC and TRI-KES, have been certified to the NSF/American National Standard for Sustainable Wallcoverings (NSF/ANSI 342).

NSF/ANSI 342: Sustainability Assessment for Wallcoverings Products is a result of a Wallcoverings Association (WA) initiative to drive continual improvement in environmental sustainability and social responsibility.

“We applaud the Wallcoverings Association’s leadership and are fully committed to the industry’s sustainability initiatives,” says Ashley Vizzi, director of the commercial division at York Wallcoverings. “We recognize this is an ever-important issue to our A&D customers. We’re taking a proactive approach to help architects and designers easily identify and spec sustainable wallcoverings.”

“NSF/ANSI 342 certification is an important milestone as we continually evaluate and improve the sustainability of our processes and products,” explains Heather Schneider, LEED AP BD+C, regulatory manager at York. “The Wallcoverings Sustainability Standard ensures transparency throughout the product’s entire lifecycle from material selection and product design through distribution.”

Similar to the LEED Building Rating System, NSF/ANSI 342 assigns points in a number of performance categories:

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

York will continue to work with its various distributor partners in an effort to gain points in these six areas, which will ultimately certify products to Conformant, Silver, Gold and Platinum levels.
