CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa. – May 12, 2009 – Mondo, a global leader in the sports and contract flooring markets, today announced that the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute has awarded the GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certification to 10 of its rubber flooring surfaces.

The MONDO INDOOR SPORT surfaces that received certification are Advance, Mondoflex, Ramflex, Sportflex and Super X.


GEI’s Indoor Air Quality Certification is conferred upon low-emitting interior building materials, furnishings and finish systems that have been tested for indoor pollutant emissions using stringent environmental chamber methods and meet strict requirements for maintaining healthy indoor air in businesses and commercial buildings. Products that are GREENGUARD Certified contribute minimal levels of pollutants to indoor environments.
"The GREENGUARD Environmental Institute applauds Mondo for its commitment to furthering our mission of improving indoor air quality, said Marilyn Black, founder of GEI.With GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified Mondo rubber flooring, architects, builders and developers can be confident that they are specifying products that contribute to healthy indoor air quality and are safe for users and the environment."


GEI’s methodology for the GREENGUARD Certification Program was developed in conjunction with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. GREENGUARD Certification is an industry-independent, third-party certification program for low-emitting products and materials.
A member of the U.S. Green Building Council, Mondo is committed to producing surfaces that do not harm the environment at any stage of the manufacturing process—from the time raw materials are harvested to production to disposal following their useful life, which can be 25 years or more.
"Throughout its 60-year history, Mondo has invested heavily in research and development to produce high-quality products that meet the industry’s strictest quality standards, require minimal maintenance and are environmentally safe, said Federico Stroppiana, president of Mondo North and South America. ―Mondo’s rubber flooring products contribute to LEED initiatives, are antibacterial and antimicrobial throughout, and are free of harmful chemicals, so they help create healthy indoor environments."


Mondo rubber flooring is made of sustainable materials including renewable natural rubber, natural fillers and color pigments that are free of lead and other heavy metals. The company’s artificial turf products

also are designed to be environmentally friendly, and are made with post-consumer recycled content and recyclable materials. Ecofill Star, Mondo’s newest artificial turf infill, is a patented, environmentally friendly, factory-manufactured polyolefin-based granule infill. It is completely recyclable, which is an industry first.
