Moving Towards Environmental Excellence

cri green label plusEnvironmental Certification Scheme | ECS-4

The Environmental Certification scheme (ECS), administered by the Carpet Institute of Australia, is a labelling system that offers valuable insights into the ecological impact of certified carpets. To obtain environmental certification, carpet manufacturers must adhere to the Code of Practice for Environmental Management, which sets forth performance benchmarks for raw materials, carpet production, in-service usage, and disposal practices. The ECS encompasses four levels of certification, each featuring increasingly stringent performance criteria. Airlay takes great pride in attaining the highest level of certification, ECS-4Click to view fact sheet.

Product certification schemes are assessed by The Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) using the assessment framework. The following schemes are currently recognised:

- Carpet Institute of Australia – Environmental Certification Scheme
- Ecospecifier – GreenTag GreenRate
- Australiasian Furnishing Research and Development Institute – Green Tick
- Good Environmental Choice Australia (GECA)
- The Institute for Market Transformation to Sustainability – Sustainable Materians Rating Technology

sustainability recycled contentUnderlay

All Airlay carpet underlay is made from up to 90% post-industrial recycled foam and is fully recyclable. The foam is recycled from the manufacture of mattresses, car seats, chairs and lounge suites. The foam is sorted, heat treated and re-bonded into quality carpet underlay, thus minimising land fill and waste. In addition to this, our range of bamboo and laminate flooring also are eco-friendly and have recycled content.

Airlay's LVT range produces healthy and environmentally responsible flooring with its zero-waste-to-landfill production facility. During the manufacturing process, 100% of production water is recycled, and 100% of production waste is granulated to become part of new flooring in a closed-loop recycling process.  This attention to quality also extends to our care for the environment, bringing green processes, standards and environmental protection into our category-leading sustainability program.  Our LVT meets the most stringent emission/VOC standards in the world with a FloorScore certification for indoor air quality which contributes to LEED Credits.  

With the implementation of an improved low-carbon press process, manufacturing has reduced 78% of its steam consumption. Our LVT manufacturing plant uses 100% natural gas for its manufacturing – the cleanest fossil fuel energy available in the world today. Over 85% of the raw materials are sourced within 800 km of their factory, with the goal of 100%. Airlay's luxury vinyl flooring is 100% recyclable. After the product life span, it can be recycled to make new flooring, without pollution or waste production.
