The manufacturer said it now offers EPDs for modular carpet with a variety of backings: ER3 backing of 100% recycled content, ethos backing made from the film in recycled windshields, and Flex-Aire cushion with improved ergonomics and acoustics.
In addition, Tandus Centiva developed EPDs for its Powerbond hybrid resilient sheet flooring cushions including: standard Powerbond cushion, ethos cushion, ER3 cushion, and Medfloor cushion for healthcare applications.
The EPDs cover 95% of the company’s U.S.-made carpet and hybrid resilient products.
Equivalent to a sustainability “nutrition label,” an EPD is a comprehensive disclosure of a product’s lifecycle-based environmental impacts that has been validated by an independent third party.
To develop the EPDs, Tandus Centiva conducted cradle-to-cradle lifecycle assessments for the products.
Tandus Centiva is a Tarkett company.
