BioBased Tile™ and the many other flooring solutions Armstrong offers now provide one of the largest selections of green flooring products in the industry. We continue to gather information on the environmental attributes to help you make the best choice for your commercial flooring project.

When developing this information, we take into account not only the characteristics of each product, but also its entire life cycle—from the sourcing and transport of its materials, through manufacture, packaging and distribution, to application and its eventual recycling or disposal. If you're designing with an Armstrong floor product, and want to know which LEED categories and credits are applicable, we provide handy references like these charts that identify Armstrong commercial floor products that can contribute to or comply with LEED credit requirements.
