Armstrong Flooring believes the best decisions are informed decisions. That’s why we offer tools to help you choose the sustainability attributes that matter most. Our Armstrong Product Declarations (APDs) provide product content information, while our Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) provide third-party verified information on how our products impact the life cycle.

FloorScore®

The FloorScore program, developed by the Resilient Floor Covering Institute (RFCI) in conjunction with Scientific Certification Systems (SCS), tests and certifies resilient flooring products for compliance with the volatile organic compound emissions criteria of the California Section 01350 program. Floors bearing the FloorScore seal are recognized as contributing to good indoor air quality in order to protect human health.

FloorScore™ Certification

FloorScore® provides third-party certification that products are tested and comply with the California Department of Public Health (CDPH v1.1) Standard Method for Testing and Evaluating Volatile Organic Chemical (VOC) Emissions. As part of FloorScore certification, manufacturing processes, supply chain, and chemical sources are also verified and audited.

FloorScore® certified flooring products contribute to Low Emitting Material credits under The U.S. Green Building Council's (USGBC) LEED rating systems, Green Globes and the Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS), a measureable standard set for educational facilities.

Cradle to Cradle® Certification

Armstrong Flooring products with Cradle to Cradle certification guarantee that a third party has scrutinized every ingredient of every material used. The Cradle to Cradle standard is a sustainability standard that encourages continuous product improvement in material health, material reutilization, renewable energy and carbon management, water stewardship and social fairness.

Forest Stewardship Council® Certification

Armstrong Flooring’s commitment to the environment and local communities has been recognized by the Rain Forest Alliance who certifies Armstrong Flooring manufacturing facilities for Forest Stewardship Council® Chain of Custody certification (FSC® C006997). FSC certification by the Rainforest Alliance supports the growth of responsible forestry practices along every step of the production chain.
