RFCI Joins Ecomedes Sustainability Database

As part of its overall strategy to improve resilient flooring awareness, access, and specification within the A&D community, the Resilient Floor Covering Institute (RFCI) has spearheaded an initiative for its manufacturing members to list their products on the ecomedes sustainable building platform.

“RFCI has worked with ecomedes to set up a dedicated product category database that features sustainability and health and wellness information for resilient flooring products. This includes third-party certifications, declarations, ecolabels and performance data used by specifiers and flooring installers to compare and select products for green building rating system compliance,” said Jane Rohde, technical consultant for RFCI and principal of JSR Associates, a Maryland-based architectural and consulting firm.

The General Services Administration (GSA) also has a dedicated database featuring a wide array of products, including resilient flooring on GSA Contract. This attribute can also be found using the search engine within the RFCI ecomedes dedicated database.

Additionally, RFCI is working with the nonprofit group Building Transparency, adding resilient floor covering as a pilot category to provide specifiers a global warming potential (GWP) resource through Building Transparency’s Embodied Carbon Construction Calculator (EC3) tool.

“RFCI has closely collaborated with both Building Transparency and ecomedes, to be the first category to go live in the ecomedes database that includes global warming potential (GWP) data pulled directly from the EC3 tool,” Rohde explained. “Congratulations to all of the team members and RFCI members for making these two initiatives successful.”
