This standard identifies the key environmental loads of floor coverings. The specific requirements of the standard include product performance, material content, adhesives, emissions during production and post-installation, energy use and waste.

This standard applies to a range of floor coverings and carpet underlays that are laid on top of a foundation of concrete or wooden beams and are not part of the building structure. This includes floor covering such as:

🔸 Parquet
🔸 Wooden planks
🔸 Engineered wood products e.g. laminate
🔸 Linoleum
🔸 Bamboo
🔸 Cork
🔸 Rubber
🔸 Vinyl

Other environmentally innovative floor coverings that do not fit the above categories may be considered for certification provided the product fulfils the requirements of all relevant sections of this Standard. Hard surfacing product applications that are suitable for vertical application and outdoor use such as ceramic tiles, quarried stone and polished concrete are not considered within the scope of this standard. Other categories may be added at a later date.

Being an environmentally aware business, we needed a way to ensure, adhere and implement sustainably preferable strategies into our business plan. The team at GECA is co-operative and their guidance ensured that we not only complied with green standards, but exceeded them. The process is credible and well-received in the market place and ensures that we are set apart from the not-so-genuine ‘greenwashing’ companies.
