Invista said its Antron brand of carpet fiber has reached new ‘green’ milestones. The product was recently recertified as an Environmentally Preferable Product by third-party group Scientific Certification Systems. This recertification was partly based on a comprehensive “global eco-profile” assessment from Boustead Consulting.
The eco-profile measures the environmental footprint of the
product from raw material distribution to manufacturing. Invista says it is an
important tool for assessing the true environmental impact. “This data will
become the benchmark for managing the key factors that contribute to
sustainable carpet fiber production,” said Henning Bloech, manager of
environmental initiatives for Invista.
