At Dinoflex, we are constantly seeking innovative new ways to minimize our impact on the environment. Environmental awareness is evident in the development of our products, our industrial processes, the materials we use, and every facet of our business.This is what designers and architects are looking for when they choose a Green product. Our manufacturing process does not pollute the air, ground or water.
The Resilient Floor Covering Institute, in collaboration with Scientific Certification Systems, developed FloorScore to test and certify hard surface flooring products for compliance with precise indoor air quality emissions requirements. Individual volatile organic compounds are evaluated using health-based specifications. Products bearing the FloorScore label meet their indoor air emissions criteria.

Our recycled rubber flooring outlasts many types of traditional commercial flooring products when exposed to normal foot traffic stress. Up to 90 per cent of Dinoflex flooring consists of recycled, post-consumer tire rubber. This recycled crumb rubber is produced within a 500-mile radius of our factory and our water-based polymer binder is manufactured on site. Dinoflex Recycled Rubber Flooring is virtually maintenance free, which is a chief trait of all our products.
Dinoflex is a proud participant of the world-renowned ClimateSmart program. For many years ClimateSmart has been recognized for their work helping businesses calculate emissions, reduce their carbonfootprint, and cut production costs. As part of the ClimateSmart program, Dinoflex was required to complete a greenhouse gas emissions inventory and submit a list of environmental impact strategies.

The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a Green Building Rating System™ which encourages and accelerates global adoption of sustainable green building and development practices through the creation and implementation of universally understood and accepted tools and performance criteria.
The Green Schoolhouse Series is a collaborative effort that brings together corporations, foundations, school districts, municipalities, communities, media outlets, and volunteers to build innovative, environmentally sustainable, LEED-Platinum designed Green Schoolhouses. Green schools do not only increase the quality of education, they offer financial and environmental benefits.
The Collaborative for High Performance Schools understands that children learn better in schools with the proper environment. That means good lighting, clean air and comfortable classrooms. Dinoflex works with CHPS to ensure that every child has access to the best learning environment that will have the smallest impact on the planet. CHPS helps facilitate and inspire innovation in our educational system.
