Carpet & Rug Institute Seal of Approval:

U.S. Green Building Councilís (USGBC) LEED Certification Program:
Facilities can earn at least 1 point towards the minimum 32 points necessary to be certified by having an effective, high-performance matting system.
Green Seal (GS-42) Environmental Standards for Cleaning Services:
Focus on ways in which to reduce a productís environmental impact. Vacuum use/maintenance and entryway matting are discussed.
Entryway mats are a great option because they stop dirt that would otherwise have to be cleaned up all over the building. Consider that 80-90% of dirt inside a building comes in on peopleís feet. Mats can increase the life of floor finishes and reduce the need for polishing or burnishing. Mats can extend the life of carpeting and reduce the need for wet cleaning. Rubber mats are a greener, more natural choice than vinyl.
