CROSSVILLE, TN -- Green Builder Media recently recognized Crossville, Inc. as an Eco-Leader. Crossville’s commitment to sustainability is the standard-bearer for the domestic tile industry, and this recognition further solidifies the brand’s reputation as an environmental leader -- not only in the tile industry but also as a national manufacturer. 

Crossville was among eight national companies recognized. The publication based its selections on the Platform for Accelerating the Circular Economy’s DISRUPT directives, which include: 


* Design for the future
 * Incorporate digital technology
 * Sustain and preserve what’s already there
 * Rethink the business model
 * Use waste as a resource
 * Prioritize regenerative resources
 * Team up to create joint value


Environmental impact continues to be an important issue at Crossville. When the company began 30 years ago as a tile manufacturer, the focus on sustainability efforts was because it wanted to do the right thing for the environment.

“Crossville’s commitment to sustainability is the standard-bearer for the domestic tile industry,” said Lindsey Waldrep, vice president of marketing. “We continue to be focused on leading the industry in sustainable initiatives for making porcelain tile as green as possible by ensuring material health and following high standards for responsible resourcing and conservation, as well as using recycled content in production.”

To learn more about Crossville’s eco-leader efforts, the company provides complete sustainability documentation for products and processes on its website so that designers can specify Crossville with confidence.
