There are several ways in which a floor can be sustainable, they can contain minimal volatile organic contents (V.O.C.), some may even include recyclable components, and then there is light reflectivity.
What separates light reflectivity from those other sustainable features, is that light reflectivity returns money to the building operator.

Less light is required when you have a reflective floor, and less light is less energy. That is way the big warehouse stores like Cosco and Sam’s Club utilize reflective flooring.
Lighting currently accounts for somewhere between 20-25% of a building’s energy consumption. Using less light, will reduce energy consumption, saving money and have a positive effect on the environment.

The high gloss surface of reflective flooring is typically easy to clean as well. The combined benefit of less maintenance costs and less energy makes reflective flooring a winning solution.
