Reducing Environmental Impact

All Armstrong Flooring manufacturing plants maintain an Environmental Management System (EMS) in accordance with ISO 14001 which includes continuous environmental performance targets. Manufacturing plants located outside of the United States including plants in China and Australia are third party certified to ISO 14001 and ISO 9001. Additionally, over 50% of our raw materials suppliers by cost are ISO 14001 and/or ISO 9001 certified.

In 2007, Armstrong published sustainability goals. Our goals, with a base year of 2006, were to reduce energy, greenhouse gases and water by 10% by 2015. We achieved these goals and reset our goals to reduce energy, water and waste intensity by 25% by 2024 with 2014 as our baseline year. Below is information on the progress we’ve made in our global footprint
