We’ve been sustainable from the start

Ecore was born “green.” From harvesting the benefits of wood without harming trees to now repurposing rubber into high-performance athletic flooring, Ecore has paved the way for creating surfaces that provide exceptional safety, ergonomics, and acoustic benefits for thousands of people interacting with our surfaces every day.

Virtually zero waste; virtually zero odors

Through our energy-efficient processes and technology, we use minimal water, little to no heat, no smokestacks, and reuse the scrap, bringing our flooring surfaces full circle when it comes to upcycling. All of this results in a cleaner, high-quality reclaimed rubber flooring surface that’s virtually free from off-gassing and odors.

TRUcircularity™ Program

The TRUcircularity™ program helps companies like yours reclaim their existing rubber flooring and replace it with new Ecore-engineered, high-performance flooring. We take your old rubber flooring and recycle it into Ecore products that will benefit other facilities in the near future. Shortly after your old flooring reclamation and new flooring installation, you’ll receive a certificate sharing your specific positive impact on our planet. Join us in going full circle, and become a participant and our partner in this exciting revolution.

Governed by Product Category Rules (PCR), these documents establish guidelines for specific product categories, ensuring transparency and comparability between EPDs. Our products undergo a stringent EPD process, featuring a comprehensive life cycle assessment based on ISO 14040 standards.

Ecore’s Health Product Declarations

Health Product Declarations (HPDs) disclose the potential hazards associated with a building product ingredient. HPDs were created by the Health Product Declaration Collaborative, who established the Open Standard which consists of a defined format and rules for reporting. Several of our products have Health Product Declarations.

LEED®, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is a globally recognized green building program that offers third-party verification for sustainable construction. It empowers building owners with tools to enhance performance and create healthy indoor environments. Many interior products have the potential to contribute points to LEED; but, since credits are based on the performance of all the products involved in a particular project, there is not one stand-alone product that can guarantee you will obtain LEED credits. It is the combination, and the weight of each, that is critical.
