Metroflor Rolls Out First Carbon Neutral Collections
Norwalk, CT, June 29, 2023-Following the creation of Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) for specific product lines and the data they provided about product lifecycle assessments, Metroflor Corporation announced that it has secured carbon credits to offset the total amount of embodied carbon generated by the manufacture and sale of Déjà New products. This has enabled Metroflor’s benchmark commercially rated glue down LVT to become the brand’s first carbon neutral collection.
Based on the EPD calculations and sales history, Metroflor purchased the required amount of Verified Emission Reductions (VERs) to fully offset its embodied carbon footprint. While Metroflor’s long-term strategy is to make floors that contain no embodied carbon, this carbon offsetting initiative meets Metroflor’s short-term goal of making an immediate impact in the global effort to stave off global warming.
