Green Squared Certification
Green Squared Certified

Green Squared Certified

Green Squared is a multi-attribute, industry-wide standard that underscores the North America tile industry’s commitment to sustainable manufacturing. The Green Squared standard provides architects, specifiers, and consumers with a consistent set of criteria for evaluating the sustainability of tile and tile installation products.

Products bearing the Green Squared Certified logo are manufactured according to rigorous sustainability criteria that address a broad range of considerations, from extraction of the raw materials needed to reuse or disposal at the end of a product’s life. Manufacturers of Green Squared certified products invest considerable resources to ensure their facilities and manufacturing practices are socially and environmentally responsible, and to obtain third-party certification.

Clearly, Green Squared Certified products are robustly sustainable.
