ISO 14001 and 9001 Registered

Mannington's Environmental Management Systems (EMS) third party certified to ISO 14001 are: 

  • 2004 - Commercial tile and commercial inlaid sheet operations located in New Jersey 
  • 2005 - Georgia carpet operation 
  • 2009 - Residential sheet operations in New jersey 
  • 2003 – Georgia LVT operations
Each facility has successfully completed all annual re-certification and surveillance audits. 

Our Quality Management System (QMS) has been third party certified to ISO 9001 in our New Jersey tile and inlaid sheet operation since 2004 and in our Georgia LVT operations since 2003.   Each facility has successfully completed all annual recertification and surveillance audits. The result is a highly organized and structured approach that ensures the efficient, effective management and continual improvement of our environmental and quality systems. 

As required by the ISO standards, rigorous system verification was conducted by our third party registrar. The New Jersey location was most recently audited in October, 2014; Georgia carpet location in October, 2014; and Georgia LVT location in January, 2015.

 
Examples of the most recent findings from the third party registrar, NSF, are: 

  • Carpet, Calhoun, GA –2014 two minor deficiencies for ISO 14001 as follows:
    • The process of taking into account planned or new developments when identifying environmental aspects is not effective in some cases.
    • The process for dealing with nonconformity and taking corrective actions is not effective in most cases.
  • Inlaid and Tile, Salem, NJ – 2014 Zero Deficiencies for ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. 
  • Residential Sheet, Salem, NJ – 2014 Zero Deficiencies for ISO 14001. 
In our ISO 14001 EMS, we evaluate the significant environmental aspects and impacts of our activities, products, and services at least annually and establish specific objectives and targets for continual improvement.

For 2015 in the Georgia carpet operation, we're focusing on: 
 
  • Net User of Waste >2
  • Develop LCA and EPD for additional product
  • Complete product transparency declaration for carpet products
  • Researching dematerialization opportunities while maintaining product quality, durability and performance 
  • Continuing energy management initiatives to meet our corporate energy intensity reduction of 25% in 10 years per our DOE Better Plants Partner commitments. 
  • Developing additional Life Cycle Assessments and Environmental Product Declarations for certifications, competitive comparison, and internal improvement. 
For 2015 in the New Jersey residential and commercial sheet and tile operations, we're focusing on:

  • Continuing operational waste reductions. 
  • Developing new sources of post-consumer recycled material.
  • Maintaining the post-consumer recycled content of specific products, while maintaining or improving product quality, durability, and performance.
  • Continuing reductions of process energy usage and resulting emissions to meet our corporate energy intensity reduction of 25% in 10 years per our DOE Better Plants Partner commitments.  
Examples of some good things we accomplished last year are shown below: 

In 2014 the Georgia carpet operation focused on and achieved: 

  • Retained product certifications to most current NSF/ANSI 140 EPP standard - Retained certification on 6 platforms.
  • Maintained the post-consumer recycled content of specific products, while maintaining or improving product quality, durability, and performance - Accomplished.
  • Continued reductions and more effective management of plant waste stream – Decreased slightly remains 2015 target.
  • Introduced energy management initiatives to meet our corporate energy intensity reduction of 25% in 10 years per DOE Better Plants Partner commitments – 33% energy intensity reduction from our base year of 2008 in Calhoun operation. 
  • Developing Life Cycle Assessments and Environmental Product Declarations for certifications, competitive comparison, and internal improvement – Completed 1 HPD in 2014. 
  • Expanded EMS to include safety – Complete 
In 2014 the New Jersey resilient and commercial sheet and tile operations focused on and achieved: 

  • Continued operational waste reductions – Did not accomplish, remains 2015 target. 
  • Obtained product certifications to the most current NSF/ANSI 332 EPP standard – Achieved Gold level certification for 2 platforms (Premium and standard tile and all Inlaid sheet products). 
  • Continued using post-consumer recycled content in specific products, while maintaining or improving product quality, durability, and performance – Continued use of recycled content in Premium Tile, Relay RE, & Biospec MD was accomplished. 
  • Reduced process energy usage and resulting emissions to meet our corporate energy intensity reduction of 25% in 10 years per DOE Better Plants Partner commitments –Did not accomplish, remains 2015 target.
