green squaredThe Tile Council of North America (TCNA) announced that Green Squared® has been added to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Recommendations of Specifications, Standards and Ecolabels for Federal Purchasing. In order to aid in identifying and procuring environmentally sustainable products and services, U.S. government purchasing officials have been notified of the recommendation.

Green Squared is the first multi-attribute sustainability standard developed for tiles and tile installation materials. It uses the transparency and consensus of the ANSI process combined with third party certification to evaluate, validate and communicate products that have a positive impact on the environment and society.

Green Squared covers product characteristics, manufacturing, end of product life management, progressive corporate governance and innovation in an effort to establish sustainability criteria for products throughout their full life-cycle.
