supports a manufacturer’s web site by cataloging its greenproducts and providing the 42,000 LEED approved professionals and architecturalcompanies the ability to evaluate each product against the United States GreenBuilding Council’s LEED standards. The
GreenerFlooring
platform enables the user to evaluate a product, or group of products against the LEED environmental rating systems and to then generate thedocumentation necessary for inclusion in the certification process or buildingproject.“We understand that the design community has great many “green” choices when itcomes to green flooring products, however finding the right product that meets theLEED standards is often a challenge. The ever changing LEED standards can be veryconfusing, increasingly complex and very time consuming to implement, especiallywhen you’re trying to meet the USGBC LEED standards” said Peter Rundle, CEO,GreenerFlooring LLC. “Architects and builders are spending too much time andmoney looking for the products that qualify for their LEED approved projects.
 
Unfortunately this is costing the industry money and having the effect of discouraging people to participate in the important LEED process. As a company weare committed to simplifying this process through our three step process.
