Practices & Partnerships
Green has always been our signature color
Before it was called ‘sustainability,’ responsibility was at the heart of Crossville’s business philosophy. As a proudly American manufacturer, we see reducing negative impacts on natural resources, and increasing the positive effects our products and our people have on the world around them, as two sides of the same beautiful solution.
From our progressive manufacturing practices, to our award-winning green tile innovations, to our commitment to improving the everyday experiences of our employees, customers and partners, Crossville is—and always has been—the industry leader in sustainability.
Search for manufacturing facilities with in 500 miles
Not only are our products third-party certified by SCS Global Services, a leading sustainability firm, we’ve ensured our entire manufacturing process is too
GREEN SQUARED® CERTIFIED
Crossville is the first manufacturer to earn TCNA’s Green Squared® certification—the highest sustainability standard in the industry—across all U.S.-manufactured porcelain tile product lines
FIRED PORCELAIN RECYCLING
We’re the first large-scale manufacturer to invent a way to recycle fired porcelain as stock for new tile
TOTO USA PARTNERSHIP
We partner with TOTO® USA sanitary wares to recycle pre-consumer fired porcelain they would normally discard into raw material for new tile. Just a few years into the program, Crossville has become the first net consumer of tile waste (meaning we recycle more than we produce), diverting millions of pounds of waste from landfills
TILE TAKE-BACK™ PROGRAM
Ours is the only program of its kind that accepts previously installed fired porcelain, cut scraps and loose samples for recycling into brand new tile
We manufacture all our domestic tile collections using pre-consumer recycled content—up to 40% in some colorways
We recycle water for re-use in manufacturing processes, and strive to source what we need to make and market our products—from raw materials to packaging, printing and transportation—from within 350 miles of operation
From our clay and raw materials to our trucks, packaging and printing, we strive to acquire what we need to make and market our products from within 350 miles of operation
