Teknoflor Naturescapes HPD - The Living Product Challenge

Teknoflor Naturescapes HPD - The Living Product Challenge

Teknoflor® Naturescapes HPD™ is the brand’s first organic sheet good made with ecuran, an organically-derived polyurethane composite material processed from plant-based oils such as castor oil and naturally occurring minerals such as chalk. This resilient sheet flooring product has all the advantages of sheet vinyl: durability, easy maintenance and versatility, but without the PVC. The product comes in twenty-four beautiful designs across three distinct styles that can be used independently or together. Currently sold throughout the United States by Shannon Specialty Floors and designed and sourced by Metroflor Corporation, Naturescapes HPD has an LBC-Compliant Declare label (a nutrition label for building products). While both Shannon and Metroflor have a longstanding history of safe and sustainable practices, it is largely thanks to their work with organizations and collaborations like the International Living Future Institute (ILFI), the Health Product Declaration Collaborative (HPDC), and mindful MATERIALS that the environmental business focus at each company has expanded to include transparency and material health. This has led the two companies to extensively examine their corporate culture and the products they bring to market, while also allowing them to set precedents in the resilient flooring industry – an industry they’ve both called home for decades. Shannon Specialty Floors became the first company in the flooring industry to receive a JUST label, while Metroflor Corporation’s Aspecta division became the first to receive a JUST label for a factory based in China (and all of Asia, for that matter). Metroflor was the first company to have Declare labels issued in six languages for several of its Aspecta commercial flooring products, and was the first to have a Declare label issued for a multilayer modular flooring product. Despite such accomplishments, Shannon and Metroflor realized that the crown jewel of sustainability and transparency-based programs – the Living Product Challenge (LPC) – was one that they had not yet achieved. Tackling the LPC would first require an alternative to PVC-flooring. This made Teknoflor® Naturescapes HPD™, a polyurethane sheet flooring product that the two companies had been developing in conjunction with Windmöller GmbH, the natural choice for LPC certification. Shannon and Metroflor next secured the aid of WAP Sustainability Consulting, a firm whose employees had extensive experience as LPC assessors and consultants. Over the course of the next four months, the four companies poured extensive time and resources into the Living Product Challenge…with organization, open communication, and drive & determination allowing them to successfully reach their goal. Through their combined efforts, Teknoflor® Naturescapes HPD™ has become the first resilient flooring product to achieve Petal Certification under the Living Product Challenge.
