We are committed to being a sustainability leader
Action Floor Systems has a long-standing commitment to being a sustainability leader. Offering environmentally friendly products, conserving energy and ensuring full utilization of all raw materials at our zero-waste mill, joining global and national environmental initiatives, and verified adherence to ISO 14064-1 (2006) standards.
Action has earned the industry’s first — and only — Carbon Negative certification, based on a Life Cycle Assessment by the University of Wisconsin and Carbon Clear, an international independent auditor of manufacturing carbon profiles. Ours is the only MFMA-accredited mill that meets all environmental and performance measures for Carbon Negative certification.
Our Action Herculan® synthetic polyurethane seamless systems are totally solvent-free and feature the industry’s first water-based top coat. An eco-friendly solution for many applications, Action Herculan exceeds all EPA and regional air-quality standards for adhesives and floor finishes, and contains no volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and no residual fume issues, for minimal disruption of activity in occupied facilities during installation. Our FSC certified maple and Herculan synthetic products can also contribute to LEED points.
In addition to being a sustainable leader, we make sure we stay focused by using our own SCORES criteria and SCORE card. What does SCORES mean?
What Energy Specialists Say…
“In addition to reducing their energy bills, their (Action Floor Systems) renewable energy system is a beacon of their environmental responsibility.”
— Don Wichert, Director of Focus on Energy’s renewable energy program
“Because Action Floor Systems began operation of a new biomass-fired boiler in 2008 that emits no net GHG pollutants as a replacement for burning an equivalent amount of natural gas, Action Floor Systems made a significant reduction in its GHG emissions.”
—Timothy Mattson, Senior Project Scientist with AECOM
