Executive Summary

From Vinyl Composition Tile (VCT) to carpet tile to laminates or rubber, facility managers who are thinking about new flooring have a dizzying array of choices. But what about the facility manager who wants to install green flooring? For green flooring, linoleum and cork are two options worth considering. Linoleum is a common choice for hard-surface flooring in green designs because it is a natural product and can help a project qualify for points under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system. Cork is another resilient flooring option that is becoming more popular because of its green benefits, softness, sound and heat-insulating characteristics, and unique look.
