    J+J/Invision Products Awarded BREEAM Environmental Certification

    JJInvision_BREEAM_1

    J+J/Invision scored impressively in BREEAM Certification for 22 modular carpet styles earlier this week. United Kingdom-based BRE Global provides independent third-party certification for building materials through Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment (BREEAM), the world’s longest established and most widely used environmental assessment method for buildings.

    The Dalton, Georgia-based manufactuer's certified products feature the eKo® modular backing system and represent seven categories of fiber types and product weights. Each product was scored based on use in four building types – Commercial Offices, Healthcare, Education, and Retail – meaning that each product could conceivably receive four different ratings based on the criteria for each category. Of the 88 potential scores for these 22 product styles, all received scores of B or higher and 81% received an A or A+ rating.

    Each of these products received highly rated Certified Environmental Profiles using BRE Global’s Environmental Profiles Methodology, a life cycle assessment that measures a product’s cradle-to-grave impact.

    “Third-party certifications allow specifiers and designers to confidently select J+J/Invision products with specific environmental ratings that can then be used when developing projects using BREEAM’s building schemes,” said Russ DeLozier, Director of Sustainability at J&J Industries. “Certified Environmental Profiles are just one more way to make intelligent environmental decisions.”

    Ecopoints for each of the certified products will be available at www.greenbooklive.com.
