The Tile Council of North America (TCNA) has developed BSR A138.1-201x, a new specification for sustainable glass and ceramic tiles as well as tile installation materials.

It was created as a means to establish a consistent approach to the evaluation and determination of environmentally preferable and sustainable glass and ceramic tiles as well as the installation materials.

The standard includes relevant criteria across product life cycle, from raw material extraction through manufacturing, use and end-of-life management.

Additional information about the TCNA is available though its website (www.tileusa.com/).
