ISO 14001 and 9001 certification

ISO 14001 and 9001

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

  • 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, 2015; Georgia carpet location in September, 2015; and Georgia LVT location in November, 2015.

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

  • Carpet, Calhoun, GA –2015 Zero Deficiencies for ISO 14001.
  • Inlaid and Tile, Salem, NJ – 2015 1 minor deficiency for ISO 9001 and 1 minor       deficiency ISO 14001 as follows:
    •  Internal audits are not being completed according to the schedule
    •  Root cause analysis not identified on some nonconformities
  • Residential Sheet, Salem, NJ – 2015 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 2016 in the Georgia carpet operation, we're focusing on:

  • Net User of Waste >3
  • Completing 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.

For 2016 in the New Jersey residential and commercial sheet and tile operations, we're focusing on:

  • Continuing operational waste reductions.
  • 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 2015 the Georgia carpet operation focused on and achieved:

  • Net User of Waste >2 – Achieved 5.12
  • Develop LCA and EPD for additional product - Complete
  • Complete product transparency declaration for carpet products – Continuing into 2016
  • Researching dematerialization opportunities while maintaining product quality, durability and performance - Complete
  • Continuing energy management initiatives to meet our corporate energy intensity reduction of 25% in 10 years per DOE Better Plants Partner commitments -  37% energy intensity reduction from our base year of 2008 in Calhoun operation.
  • Develop Life Cycle Assessments and Environmental Product Declarations for certifications, competitive comparison, and internal improvement – Complete

In 2015 the New Jersey resilient and commercial sheet and tile operations focused on and achieved:

  • Continued operational waste reductions – Improvement, remains 2016 target.
  • 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 2016 target.
