The implementation of sustainable building practices has catapulted decorative and polished concrete applications to the forefront of the flooring industry. Traditional floor coverings, such as carpet, tile and wood flooring often mandate adhesives that emit VOCs into the atmosphere over time, reducing the indoor air quality. Green building with concrete can contribute to sustainable building in other areas as well by improving light reflectivity and providing thermal mass.

The rising trend to build more cost effectively with less impact on the environment has stirred a lot of interest in the unique qualities of concrete. Green building includes reducing waste from products used, finding non-toxic product alternatives, and using recycled and local materials. These environmentally-conscious choices are readily available when designing and building with concrete.
