J+J Flooring Completes EPDs on Standard Products
Dalton, GA, May 21, 2014 -- J+J Flooring Group said it has completed Environmental Product Declarations for 100% of its standard products.
The company released EPDs for Invision brand products that use PremierBac, TitanBac and Nexus backing systems, adding to the EPDs introduced last September for Kinetex brand products and Invision modular styles with eKo backing.
J+J’s five EPDs are third-party certified by NSF 140.
“We now provide verified, transparent life cycle data on every standard product,” said Russ Delozier, J+J Flooring Group director of sustainability.
“We are among the first flooring manufacturers to complete this process for our full standard product line, responding to customer demand for a thorough overview of the environmental impact of the products they choose.”
An EPD includes data on every environmental touch point of a product.
Invision’s PremierBac, TitanBac and Nexus backings are certified to the NSF 140 Gold environmental standard. Invision’s eKo backing and Kinetex brand products are NSF 140 Platinum certified.
