Bolyu Contract has re-achieved the Platinum certification for NSF/ANSI 140—Sustainability Assessment for Carpet, the highest level, for all Nexterra backed carpet tile products.
“We continuously evaluate our manufacturing operations, supply chain and full life cycle of each and every component of our business to find the best ways to reduce our impact on the environment," said Nicolas Bouckaert, Bolyu Contract president.
NSF/ANSI 140 establishes sustainability performance requirements for carpet products throughout their life cycle and supply chain. According to the organization, designers, architects, facility managers, purchasing professionals and contractors depend on the standard to specify and obtain reliable and more sustainable carpet products. In fact, the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA), which serves as the purchasing arm of the U.S. government, requires a minimum Gold level certification to NSF/ANSI 140: Sustainability Assessment for Carpet for all broadloom (wall-to-wall) carpet and carpet tile.
NSF certified sustainable carpet products also may contribute innovation points toward a building’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification as well as Materials and Resources credits under the Green Globes green building rating program.
