DALLAS, TX — As an environmental leader among the flooring industry, Dal-Tile Corp. has recently announced its support of the latest LEED Interpretation Ruling (LIR) for recycled content set forth by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). This ruling sets the standard for recycled content claims and documentation for LEED projects looking to achieve points for MRc4 Recycled Content, and aims to bring further transparency to green building through accurate recycled content reporting.

The Daltile and American Olean brands agree with the methodology specified in the new LIR, as both brands have been calculating and reporting in this manner since receiving the first request for recycled material content for a LEED project back in 2004. Through both brand Web sites, customers have access to the post-consumer and post-industrial recycled material content of all Dal-Tile products and can even determine the exact distance from a specific products’ manufacturing site to the project location.
