Green Initiatives

rule

CCA’s Commercial Sales Division believes it is our commitment and responsibility to our local community, customers, suppliers and employees to implement innovative and responsible environmental procedure. We call this commitment “Greenality” and it includes

  • Recycling ALL materials that leave our facility
  • Buying green products
  • Selling green products
  • Recognizing and rewarding employees who buy environmentally friendly products and act responsibly toward our environment

Green office practices

CCA Floors & Interiors GREEN Committee, established in 2009, has converted the offices to using eco-friendly cleaning products and recycled paper materials as well as installed energy efficient compact fluorescent light bulbs and a new energy efficient refrigerator. The committee recently completed an energy audit and is in the process of implementing its recommendations, including the installation of dual flush toilets and motion sensing lighting.

Green products and LEED compliance

We also offer recycled and environmentally friendly flooring products that are an essential part of a building’s qualification as LEED compliant. CCA’s Commercial Sales Division maintains vendor relationships with several manufacturers that produce some of the greenest floor coverings available, including Patcraft ECOworx-backed carpet tile and Forbo Marmoleum linoleum. All of our sales representatives are U.S. Green Building Council-trained, and we are able to provide an Environmental Impact Statement to customers to show the positive impact of recycling or diverting a certain amount of carpet. As a commitment to doing greener business, CCA’s Commercial Sales Division has four LEED AP-certified employees on staff.

Starnet Reclamation Program

Through our partnership with Starnet Worldwide, CCA’s Commercial Sales Divisionparticipates in the Carpet America Recovery Effort (CARE). We reclaim used carpet from any mill, in any material, installed at any date, anywhere in North America and divert it from landfills to be recycled, burned for energy or used to manufacture other products. Last year alone we saved more than 7,000 cubic yards of landfill space.

Broad Run Recycling Program

CCA’s Commercial Sales Divisions has partnered with Broad Run Construction Waste Recycling in Northern Virginia, which will reclaim or recycle almost all post-construction waste. By the end of 2011, CCA Commercial Floors & Interiors believes it will be able to divert 100% of all materials sent to the facility.

Manufacturers

We work with the most trusted and respected mills and manufacturers in the flooring industry.
