• Siena cork products are manufactured from cork trees from Portugal and Sardina. Cork trees are considered a rapidly renewable resource, as the bark used naturally renews itself after it has been harvested.

• FSC Certified HDF makes up 6.8mm of the overall 10mm thick flooring. Therefore, 68% of the product cost can be counted toward LEED NC MR Credit 7, FSC Certified Wood Products.

• When used in combination with low-VOC adhesives, this flooring type qualifies as a lowemitting flooring system.

• Because of the rapidly renewable quality of this product, if you are working on a major renovation project for an existing building then using this product can help you comply with Materials and Resources Credit 3: Sustainable Purchasing – Facilities Alterations and Additions (LEED EBOM).
