Social ResponsibilityAt It's Core
The flooring industry is evolving to meet the green standards being sought out by the end user. Considering the legitimate environmental concerns involved with every single LVP on the market, we are proud to be the only manufacture with an existing solution that addresses indoor emissions and are currently working with strategic partners to develop other ‘green’ solutions.
The core environmental problems with LVP flooring lies with the large carbon footprint left in the atmosphere due to the instrinsic properties of the PVC used in the manufacturing process. The inability to reuse and/or properly recycle LVP products means they will not decompose in landfills leaving an environmental hazard that will last generations.
Health & Materials
At Carbon Core, the health of people and the planet are foundational to our approach to materials. When it comes to green chemistry, we design our products and facilities to reduce or eliminate hazardous substances to the best of our ability and have established a long-term commitment to continually improve our processes from top to bottom.

Bamboo Sourcing & Construction
Our facility is a pioneer in its field and has been responsibly procuring bamboo and developing bamboo based products for over 30 years. Our R&D teams bespoke process provides an alternative ‘core’ to our LVP product that essentially uses less PVC throughout and is demonstrably biodegradable over time.
Flooring Manufacturing Facilities
Once the Carbon Core itself is ready, our flooring manufacturing plant follows the strictest construction procedures inline with the rest of the industry and does not procure products from the Uyghur Region of China.
In the spirit of innovation and with the desire to provide a cradle-2-cradle solution, we are actively working with a number of strategic partners whose sole purpose is to help us evaluate and reduce the life cycle impact of our flooring products. What we have is unique and special- but as with everything in the flooring industry, there is plenty of room for improvement.
At Carbon Core™ it’s our purpose to look at the bigger picture. We strive to close the loop through recycling and reusing materials whenever possible to decrease the negative environmental and health impacts of the product life cycle.
The journey to more sustainable business practices is ongoing, as is our commitment to running our business in a way that creates a climate fit for life.
