Dalton—Shaw Industries has released its 2014 Sustainability Report. The manufacturer’s shift to the Global Reporting Initiative’s newest G4 standard converged with a notable increase in the demand for supply chain transparency surrounding product ingredients across the flooring industry.

This is the kind of innovation that creates a more sustainable future.”
