Environmental Impact of Materials: Floor Finishes Summary


Environmental Impact of Materials: Floor Finishes by Andrew Dutfield

This report provides a review of how floor coverings have been assessed within The Green Guide to Specification, including the application of the Environmental Profiles methodology which underlies it. The way in which floor coverings are addressed in building level environmental assessment schemes such as BREEAM and the Code for Sustainable Homes is also explained. The report will give manufacturers and specifiers an understanding of the significant impacts of floor-covering products over their whole life cycle to identify opportunities for improvements to the environmental performance.
It is part of a series that provides comparable information on insulation, cladding, windows, metals, timber, masonry and concrete. These will be of value when considering the environmental impact of specific construction materials.
