Flooring Sustainability – Recyclability and Reusability
Our GSA manufacturers have numerous flooring types and products that meet sustainability requirements. Virtually any facility can use eco-friendly floor coverings while still providing the same application and functionality you can expect from our top name manufacturers.
Recycled Rubber Flooring – Fitness Rooms, Healthcare and Beyond
Rubber floor coverings are one of the most sustainable products available on GSA for their reusability and upcycling capabilities. Our rubber flooring manufacturers that utilize recycled rubber materials include RC Musson, Dinoflex, Roppe, Flexco, and Ecore.
Eco-friendly Luxury Vinyl
There are multiple ways to use Luxury Vinyl for sustainability purposes. Manufacturers such as Flexco and Roppe source raw materials for their LVT to lessen environmental impact from production.
Flexco and Roppe offer luxury vinyl tile and plank that is 100% recyclable.
As a part of our private label collection, Shaw Contract LVT offers additional transparency labels for customers such as Declare Labels, Environment Product Declarations, and Health Product Declaration Labels.

LEED Credits – Earning Your LEED Certification
Purchasing sustainable products that are LEED Certified can net your facility LEED Credits, a way of calculating how your buildings save energy and reduce excess waste. Manufacturers on contract can provide LEED certified products that can include a variety of categories for environmental protection.
Through buying LEED products, facilities can earn 1 of 4 LEED certifications from certified (40 – 49 points) to Platinum (80 – 110 points). Not all facilities have to follow the same rating system, as the type and size of the facility is heavily factored into its sustainability.
Since flooring is an important part of any building, using products that are LEED Certified is a great way to net credits for your renovations.
