Green Squared is a multi-attribute third-party certification program that covers products used in tile installation. Developed by the Tile Council of North America (TCNA), it is a sustainability standard for tiles and tile installation materials throughout their full life cycle.
Green Squared uses the transparency and consensus of the ANSI process combined with third-party certification to evaluate, validate and communicate the sustainability impact the products have on the environment and society. It covers product characteristics, manufacturing, end-of-product-life management, progressive corporate governance, and innovation.
It helps architects, designers, and end-users choose products that meet the industry's sustainability criteria.
