DALLAS, TX -- As sustainability and green building efforts continue to be valued aspects of building and remodeling, Daltile is receiving increasing requests for presentations that help communicate the green value of tile and the LEED points available through the use of tile. Most recently, at the invitation of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI), Daltile provided NARI members with a Green Building CEU to further their knowledge regarding tile and sustainability/green building.
“NARI participants in the Daltile Green Building CEU gain knowledge about how tile is an exceptional product regarding sustainability, green building and to earn LEED points,” said Whitney Welch, vice president of commercial sales, Dal-Tile Corporation. “Daltile’s CEU provides both a high-level working understanding of these concepts related to tile, as well as very specific actions that will help builders, contractors and remodelers use tile to construct high-performance buildings that are environmentally responsible, economically profitable and healthy places to live and work. The CEU teaches the sustainability attributes of tile and defines the ways tile can contribute to LEED v4.1. Also explained are the why and how of the EPD and HPD process, as well as tile’s Life Cycle Analysis and why tile is the best flooring option when it comes to green building.
“Sustainability is a major focus for commercial customers,” Welch went on to say. “To best serve these customers, NARI members as well as everyone involved in commercial construction need to have complete information about tile’s sustainability attributes.”
