Environmental responsibility is a significant core value at Concord Terrazzo Company, Inc. In everything we do from manufacturing terrazzo materials, through installation, and environmentally-friendly maintenance, all aspects of our product approach takes sustainability into account.
We are dedicated to operating a business that has an impact on our employees, customers, community, and our planet. As a member of the U.S. Green Building Council, we are proud to collaborate with architects and designers seeking Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) credits for their building projects. Concord Terrazzo Company, Inc. claims that the use TERRAZZCO Brand Products specified in buildings will offer the most sustainable epoxy terrazzo system. As we continue to enhance the durability and sustainability of TERRAZZCO materials, we are on a mission to help others achieve cost savings at a minimum cost to the environment.
TERRAZZCO Brand Products use the highest amount of recycled and zero VOC materials into their composition as possible. Many of our products feature post-industrial and post-consumer recycled content (metal, glass, and plastic), and all make use of VOC-free epoxies.
As part of our environmental stewardship, TERRAZZCO plant personnel are trained in the use of green techniques throughout all manufacturing and shipping phases, such as filtered and recycled water, material reuse, and waste disposal.
During the installation phase, our specialists collaborate closely with customers to accurately gauge material requirements and reduce waste. The benefits of our green approach don’t end once the installation is complete; the finished surface can be easily maintained using environmentally safe, non-toxic cleaners. Furthermore, the durability of TERRAZZCO products means a longer flooring lifecycle, saving building owners time and cost overall.
We care about the environment. Environmental stewardship is part of our company charter and an ideal we are committed to pursuing into the future.

When manufacturing TERRAZZCO products, we always keep the health of the building’s occupants in mind. Annually we test and certify TERRAZZCO epoxy reins through Greenguard to minimize chemical emissions. Various flooring products have the potential to emit many different types of toxins into indoor air, but we give you the comfort of knowing that our products have a positive impact on both human and planetary health.
