Dyke Industries has recognized the importance of providing “Green” building products for our customers. We also recognize the importance in the practice of “Green”, where it relates to operations. Dyke Industries has taken steps to recycle much of our waste in different manners to eliminate overfilling landfills.
We have researched a large number of the certification agencies available. Unfortunately, a number of our vendors are certified through various certification agencies. Most of these agencies do not support one another with reciprocity. Because of this, Dyke Industries has been forced to wait until the Federal Trade Commission sets the standards for the certification agencies. After the FTC sets the standards, more of the agencies will be forced to offer one another reciprocity. This will allow the “Chain of custody” of a green product to flow easier from the forest to the consumer.
Dyke Industries will continue to monitor the FTC standards and continue in its efforts to sustain a “Cradle to cradle” mentality of building products. For more information, please visit the FTC website at www.ftc.gov/bcp/conline/pubs/buspubs/greenguides.shtm
