Enviromental Policy

Contract Floor Coverings Pty Ltd is committed to supporting manufacturers who have a genuine interest in endorsing and implementing environmentally sustainable initiatives.

This can involve such practices as reducing waste and or energy during the manufacturing stage, using recycled materials in the production of new flooring products, recycling flooring material at the end of its life cycle and utilizing natural raw materials in place of synthetic or petroleum based constituents of a product.

We believe that the leading authority in Australia at present on the issue of sustainable building practices is the Green Building Council of Australia. In 2003 GBCA launched the Green Star Environmental Rating System.

Green Star Rating tools help the property industry to reduce the environmental impact of buildings, improve occupant health and productivity and achieve real cost savings, while show-casing innovation in sustainable building practices. For more information on the Green Star Rating System and the members supporting this initiative, refer to the GBCA website.

Contract Floor Coverings Pty Ltd is also dedicated to implementing and maintaining systems within its own operations, relating to environmental protection.

All adhesives used in our installations are low VOC and eco-friendly, protecting the health of our staff and customers.

Where-ever possible, remnants and old floor coverings removed from a project are stored in our warehouse to be donated to community / church organizations / welfare bodies, as part of our own recycling program.
