NSF International sustainability standards for carpet and resilient flooring are referenced in the International Green Construction Code (IgCC), offering professionals involved in the green building industry a wider selection of certified, IgCC-accepted sustainable building materials.
Developed by the International Code Council (ICC), IgCC includes sustainability measures for the entire construction project and its site—from design through construction, certificate of occupancy and beyond. The code helps make buildings more efficient, reduces waste and has a positive impact on health, safety and community welfare.
“Standards and conformity assessments like those developed by NSF International are powerful tools in fueling innovation, acceptance and wider use of sustainable building materials,” said Dominic Sims, CEO of ICC. “These cutting edge ideas and technology will continue to play a pivotal role in the future development of the IgCC."
