Leading sustainability in the flooring industry
To lead environmental efforts in any industry requires complete commitment. Action Floors lives and breathes sustainability on every level: offering environmentally friendly products; conserving energy; maximizing resource yield with full utilization of all raw materials; joining global initiatives; ensuring the well-being of our people.
Our efforts ensure clean, sustainable manufacturing practices, assess environmental impacts and establish groundbreaking best practices. This has earned us industry’s first — and only — Carbon Negative certification, based on a Life Cycle Assessment conducted by the University of Wisconsin and Carbon Clear, an international independent auditor of manufacturing carbon profiles.
In addition, Action Floors is the only MFMA-accredited mill to meet all of the Carbon Negative certification’s vital environmental and performance measures. Yes, the ONLY mill. Our efforts are substantiated and credible as verified by third-party International Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standards, regional certifications and the Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change protocols.
Our focus on innovation, product quality, responsible manufacturing practices and sustainability is further reflected in Action Floors’ own exclusive certification criteria: “SCORES.” SCORES stands for Sustainable Construction Of Renewable Engineered Surfaces and truly reflects our commitment to sustainability. SCORES is a set of criteria that evaluate our products and processes and is something our customers can use to ultimately match the lifecycle of their new Action Floor systems to the life spans of their buildings.
