CITY OF INDUSTRY, CA, 10-07 – Projects using Bentley Prince Street carpet will now find it a little easier to earn a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) credit, thanks to recently revised U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) guidelines.

Under the new USGBC guidelines, Bentley Prince Street products that are certified to the stringent "California Gold" standard can now contribute to a LEED Innovation in Design credit. The LEED Innovation in Design Credit provides design teams and projects the opportunity to be awarded points for exceptional performance above LEED requirements.

All of Bentley Prince Street’s standard broadloom products are certified to the "California Gold" standard required for State of California carpet purchases. Also achieving California Gold certification are broadloom products using the optional Prestige PlusRC™ backing and carpet tile products using EncoreRC® backing, optional on all tile products.

The LEED Green Building Rating System is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction, and operation of high performance green buildings. LEED gives building owners and operators the tools they need to have an immediate and measurable impact on their buildings’ performance.

Bentley Prince Street is committed to sustainable commerce and innovations to integrate style and function with environmental practices through its Mission Zero™ goal of eliminating any negative impact it has on the environment by the year 2020. The company maintains third-party certification to the ISO 9001 Quality Management System and the ISO 14001 Environmental Management System. Based in Los Angeles County, California, Bentley Prince Street is a subsidiary of Interface, Inc., a global provider of floorcoverings. For more information, please visit
