    The writing’s on the wall: sustainability is a must. Marking an important achievement for the Wallcoverings Association (WA), TRI-KES’s latest wall coverings (Floating Squares, Stitched Leather, and Vallejo) are the first in a range of products offered through Source One and Versa to meet WA's new NSF/ANSI 342 Sustainability Certified standard.

    “NSF 342 is the first standard in the world requiring a distributor and manufacturer to qualify in order to certify product,” says TRI-KES president Ken Salyer, Jr. The product must meet six benchmarks: product design, manufacturing, long-term value, end-of-life management, corporate governance and innovation.

    “The beauty behind this,” continues Salyer, “is our partnerships drive continual improvement in environmental sustainability and social responsibility, ensuring transparency through the entire supply chain.”

    WA launched NSF/ANSI 342 last year and expects that it will reach a very high adoption rate in the industry. The standard will be a hot topic at the annual WA conference from January 26-29 in Clearwater Beach, Florida.
