J+J/Invision Says Carpet Tile Gets Certification

Dalton, GA, Aug. 29, 2012 -- J+J/Invision said it has received BREEAM Certification for 22 modular products featuring its eKo modular backing system.

The company said that each of the products received Certified Environmental Profiles using BRE Global’s Environmental Profiles Methodology, a life cycle assessment that measures a product’s cradle-to-grave impact.

United Kingdom-based BRE Global provides independent third-party certification for building materials through Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment (BREEAM), the world’s longest established and most widely used environmental assessment method for buildings.

BREEAM is heavily used in European markets as the green building rating standard. Products earning Certified Environmental Profiles can be found online in BRE Global’s Green Guide to Specification.
