At Novalis, sustainability is at the core of everything we do. As a family-run business with operations around the globe, we know the importance of keeping humans healthy and the earth habitable for generations to come. As our Novalis family expands, so do our responsibility and commitment to improving planetary and human health.
This is the first year that Novalis is publishing a Sustainability Report. Novalis has been setting the global benchmark in LVT quality and performance for over 35 years, and we are excited to share the innovations we have been pioneering in resilient flooring sustainability.
The Novalis operational and product sustainability initiatives work in conjunction to reduce our environmental impact and improve material health. The Novalis China factory was constructed to enable the reuse of all production water and scrap, and in 2020 alone, the factory reused 145,000 tons of water and diverted 27,850 tons of scrap waste from landfill. Meanwhile, resource consumption at the factory declined from 2018 to 2019 and again from 2019 to 2020. The factory also retained the services of a third-party social auditor in 2020 to conduct a robust 4-pillar Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit to demonstrate adherence to international best practices.
On the product side, Novalis High-Density Core, an SPC construction, attained the stringent Eurofins Indoor Air Comfort Gold certification and became one of the first 4 products on the market to achieve the ASSURE Certified multi-attribute standard for rigid core flooring. Also in 2020, the Novalis commercial line AVA was named a Leader in the Marriott Supplier MindClick Sustainability Assessment Program (MSAP), reserved for products demonstrating an exemplary use of environmentally and socially responsible practices.
2020 was also a pivotal year for Novalis as we began production at the Novalis Innovation Center, our new North American headquarters in Dalton, Georgia. In the midst of the turmoil of the global pandemic, the Novalis family of employees pulled together and developed unique solutions to the unexpected obstacles of the year. Between choosing to modernize an existing building rather than incur the environmental costs of new construction, retrofitting the entire building with LED lights, and procuring a fleet of all-electric forklifts, the team is ensuring sustainability is integrated into every aspect of operations at the Novalis Innovation Center.
