Environmental Leadership

Armstrong Commercial Flooring is committed to representing the core values of our company. In all of our dealings, we're especially diligent about making sure our activities are in harmony with the natural world.

This approach to business is anything but new for Armstrong. More than a century ago, we ceased discarding post-industrial cork waste and began recycling it—first into corkboard insulation, and soon afterwards into the green product on which our modern flooring business was built: linoleum.<

Green operations and products aren't new for us, but they continue to be the focus of our development efforts. First, we work to systematically reduce the environmental footprint of our operations, year after year. Second, we provide you with continually better choices in products and services—and share with you the knowledge you need to make those sound choices—so you can steadily improve the environmental profiles of the buildings you create. In responsibility toward the environment, as in all of our business practices, we are committed to progressively raising the standards for our industry.

Corporate Policy in Action

Armstrong's policy on the environment is:

  • To exercise care in the selection and use of energy and raw materials.
  • To provide for environmental safety in our workplaces and communities.
  • To be prepared for emergencies and to act promptly and responsibly to protect people and the environment.
  • To ensure all products conform to safety, environmental and quality standards.
  • To reduce waste and embrace recycling in all our operations, and to dispose of waste materials in an environmentally responsible manner.

We have selected four Environmental Priorities to reduce our environmental footprint: Energy, Greenhouse Gases, Water, and Responsible Forest Management.
