The products featured below are considered “LEED-friendly” because they have Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs), Health Product Declarations® (HPDs), and/or contain recycled content. Each of these components can contribute to credit points in accordance with the LEED V4.1 rating system. Additionally, some collections are part of the Declare Label – Red List Free, GreenGuard Certified, Green Squared Certified, and Mindful Materials platforms.
Please keep in mind, however, that tile is made of naturally occurring materials and is an inherently healthy choice for green building practices, regardless of the components listed above. In fact, the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), with regard to LEED credit for tile, states: Mineral-based finish flooring products such as tile, masonry, terrazzo, and cut stone without integral organic-based coatings and sealants and unfinished/untreated solid wood flooring qualify for credit without any IAQ testing requirements. As such, the vast majority of our tile products could be suitable for your LEED project, and almost all are suitable for general green building practices.
