Flooring Sustainability Action Plan

This work was initiated by the Construction Products Association and supported by FIS as part of their commitments within the Strategy for Sustainable Construction.

More information on the action plan can be found here.

As part of this work a specialist website has been created with the support of funding from WRAP and BRE Trust. It acts as a useful resource for those who want to know more about flooring waste and how it can be managed.

It has information for 5 types of flooring: Broadloom carpet and underlayment, Carpet tiles, Resilient flooring, Hard flooring, Resin flooring

For assistance with the recycling of carpets

For assistance with Raised Access Flooring

In 2021 the work was followed up by the publication of Net Zero in the Flooring Sector – Zero Avoidable Waste in Flooring — Towards a Circular Economy.  A scoping study exploring the concept of zero avoidable waste in the flooring industry, towards a circular economy published by the Contract Flooring Association (CFA).
