Beaulieu Canada achieves Green Label Plus PDF Print E-mail
Written by HGO Staff   
ACTON VALE, Quebec - Beaulieu Canada is pleased to announce that all of its products meet or exceeds Green Label Plus,  the Carpet and Rug Institute's (CRI) Indoor Air Quality testing program. The CRI created Green Label Plus to identify carpets and adhesives that are tested by an independent, certified laboratory and meet stringent criteria for low chemical emissions.


"We felt that it was important to submit all categories of carpet we produce so as to not limit our customers," says Karel Vercruyssen, CEO of Beaulieu Canada. "Whether it is for a commercial project or a high-rise condominium or even a single family dwelling, Beaulieu Canada has a carpet that will meet LEED criteria for ultra-low emitting materials."

To receive Green Label Plus certification, carpet and adhesive products must undergo a 14-day testing process that measures emissions for a range of chemicals. The test methodology for small scale environmental chamber testing was developed in cooperation with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Carpet systems that meet or exceed CRI's Green Label or Green Label Plus programs can contribute one full Indoor Environmental Quality Credit to the LEED ratings of the U.S. Green Building Council.  Similarly, the Green Guide for Health Care awards one point to healthcare facilities that install Green Label Plus carpet.

For more information about the Green Label Plus testing program, contact the CRI's technical department at 706.428.2101. Headquartered in Dalton, Georgia, the CRI is the national trade association for the carpet and rug industry. Its members are manufacturers, suppliers, and service providers, representing over 90 per cent of all carpet produced in the United States.
