Committed to the environment

XL Brands is committed to achieving high standards relating to environmental protection, pollution prevention, and sustainability of our natural resources. We will ensure that the activities and processes we engage in and the products we make minimize our impact on the environment. We will continually seek to improve our environmental performance!

All carpet adhesives manufactured by XL Brands are CRI Green Label Plus™ certified. Green Label Plus is a voluntary, industry testing program for carpet and adhesive products that establishes the highest standard for indoor air quality (IAQ) ever set by the carpet industry. The Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI™) created Green Label Plus to identify carpets and adhesives that are tested by an independent, certified laboratory and meet stringent criteria for low chemical emissions.

The majority of XL Brands’ resilient adhesives carry either FloorScore® or Cradle to Cradle® Certifications or both. FloorScore® certifies that the adhesive conforms to SCS-EC 10.3-2014 for Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) standards and the Cradle to Cradle® Certification Program is a multi-attribute certification program that assesses products for safety to human & environmental health, design for future use cycles and sustainable manufacturing.

Additionally, XL Brands products

  • meet SCAQMD Rule #1168 for reduced emissions
  • available with 20% post-consumer recycled content
  • 3rd party certification through SCS Global Services
  • available with European EC-1 approval

ISO 14001:2004 specifies the requirements for an environmental management system. Fulfilling these requirements demands objective evidence which can be audited to demonstrate that the environmental management system is operating effectively in conformity to the standard. XL Brands is proud to have achieved ISO 14001:2004 certification.
