LEED

Brintons carpets contribute positively to the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification system developed by the U.S. Green Building Council, which promotes global adoption of sustainable green building and development practices.

Indoor air quality is protected through very low emissions of VOC’s, even when carpet is new. Our carpets do not pollute the air they actually remove some of the contaminants and improve the overall living environment. Brintons products contribute to LEED certification in two categories:

Rapidly Renewable Materials

Low Emitting Materials

Green Label Plus

All Brintons’ 80% wool 20% nylon woven Axminster and Wilton carpets meet stringent standards of The Carpet & Rug Institute’s Green Label Plus programme, the independent testing program that identifies carpet with very low VOC emissions to help improve indoor air quality.

Having been members of the Green Label programme for over 15 years, Brintons clearly demonstrates an ongoing commitment to both minimising environmental impact and improving indoor air quality.
