Nydree is committed to manufacturing the most sustainable wood flooring in the world and aspires to be a leader in carbon reduction in the wood flooring industry. Nydree will continue to seek out and maintain rigorous third party verification and testing of its products every year to remain transparent and innovative as a leader in the wood flooring category. We invite other engineered wood flooring manufacturers to join us in making sustainability a top priority and bringing more transparency to the industry with credible certifications.
Nydree was an early adopter of FSC® Certified wood flooring in the late 1990s. Today we remain committed to sourcing from only the most sustainable forests and showing our commitment through ongoing FSC® certification to support environmental, social and economic responsibility in the forest product industry. Note - our FSC® products are subject to upcharge.
Interior spaces in the built environment are among the most important areas to utilize products that are not only strong and durable but healthy for human occupants. Nydree believes that owners and specifiers deserve to know what’s in their product, and we are being forthcoming with transparency by way of third party verification in this important area.
Low emitting materials are an important part of meeting green building standards such as LEED v4. Nydree is committed to producing low emitting wood flooring with confidence from independent testing to ensure safer, healthier work and home environments. Through an annual third party audit Nydree shows its commitment in this area through FloorScore Certification.
An EPD is the most robust multi-attribute transparent report that communicates what a product is made of and how it impacts the environment. The impact of building materials on the climate are assessed through the complete analysis of manufacturing processes and procedures that take into consideration the full range of carbon emissions - from freight on raw materials to energy usage and product life span and consumption. Nydree’s upcoming EPD for its engineered hardwood flooring will be publishing September 2023 with verification from SCS Global Services.
Nydree’s engineered hardwood flooring is currently undergoing Carbon Neutral Certification with SCS Global Services. This demonstrates leadership and commitment to decarbonization and neutralization. This certification will ensure that we are taking responsibility for our products’ environmental impacts by first reducing the carbon footprint and then investing in verified offset projects that mitigate carbon from the atmosphere for the remainder of the footprint. A carbon neutral footprint is achieved when the sum of the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions produced are offset by natural carbon sinks or carbon credits.
