Bentley Prince Street's Cool Carpet™ program ensures that products will now be third-party certified as carbon neutral, with zero net greenhouse gases (GHG) emitted during the entire life cycle.

Bentley Prince Street's Cool Carpet™ program now comes standard on all of its broadloom and carpet tile products. Through the expanded program, every company product will now be third-party certified as carbon neutral, with zero net greenhouse gases (GHG) emitted during the entire life cycle. Expanding this program to all products is Bentley Prince Street’s latest step toward its Mission Zero™ goal of eliminating any negative impact it has on the environment by the year 2020.

"Climate change is a significant issue for all of us, with consequences already evident across the globe. Making all our products climate neutral is just one way we’re working to address this issue, and make it easy for our customers to participate in balancing the GHG emissions of their projects and join in the fight against global warming," said Anthony Minite, president of Bentley Prince Street.

Bentley Prince Street’s Cool Carpet program is designed to offset the impact of global warming of the carpet by using Life Cycle analysis to measure the CO2 emissions from its raw materials, manufacture, transport, use and maintenance and end-of-life disposition.

Once the emissions are measured, Bentley Prince Street invests in a diverse portfolio of offset projects that meet internal and third-party criteria for quality and credibility, and are designed to keep an equal amount of carbon dioxide from being released in the atmosphere as well as broaden the market for alternative energy.

This new initiative is the latest step in Bentley Prince Street’s aggressive environmental sustainability programs. Since 1996, the company has reduced absolute GHG emissions, which are the primary contributor to global warming, by 70% through a strategy that encompasses manufacturing processes, product innovations and renewable energy use. For example, increasing manufacturing process efficiencies – as well as creating new energy-efficient manufacturing systems – has resulted in a 33% reduction in energy use per unit of product output over the last 10 years. GHG emissions also are reduced through effective use of renewable energy.

Currently, 100% of Bentley Prince Street’s electrical energy requirements are made renewable through the purchase of Green Tags and the purchase of green energy directly from the grid. The company also has an on-site 100 kwh photovoltaic solar array that provides a portion of the electrical energy required for manufacturing processes.
