In 2018, Interface achieved a remarkable milestone by reducing over 60% of carbon emissions in the production of their flooring products, a journey that commenced in 1996. This achievement firmly establishes Interface as a pioneering force in the industry.
What sets Interface apart is their unique distinction as the first and only global flooring manufacturer to secure third-party certification as a Carbon Neutral Enterprise. This recognition underscores their unwavering commitment to combat climate change. Interface's carbon neutrality is certified in accordance with the rigorous PAS 2060 standard, the foremost international benchmark for carbon neutrality, established by the British Standards Institution (BSI).
Interface has implemented cutting-edge practices, including the utilisation of innovative carbon-storing raw materials, resulting in a substantial reduction in carbon emissions. Currently, they use verified emissions credits to offset any remaining emissions they have yet to eliminate. However, Interface's ultimate goal is to achieve a complete carbon impact balance without relying on such credits.
Laurel Hurd, CEO of Interface, passionately states, "Today, every facet of our business is carbon neutral. We have tirelessly worked to radically decarbonise, drawing on our culture of innovation and design. This has led us to produce what we believe are the most environmentally friendly carpet tile products available, even before considering offsets." Interface takes immense pride in this accomplishment and remains committed to further reducing their carbon footprint. Their strategy involves continuous reduction efforts and balancing any remaining emissions with reputable offsets until offsets are no longer necessary.
Join us in applauding Interface for their pioneering efforts in sustainability and their dedication to a greener, more environmentally responsible future.
