Interface meets carbon neutral status

Home Commercial Interface meets carbon neutral status

carbon neutral enterpriseAtlanta—Interface said it has been third-party certified as a Carbon Neutral Enterprise. The company said it met Carbon Neutral Enterprise status according to the PAS 2060 standard, the leading international carbon neutrality standard created by the British Standards Institution (BSI).

To achieve this, Interface said it has transformed its factories, products and supply chain—including using innovative new carbon storing raw materials—to dramatically reduce its carbon emissions. Today, verified emissions credits are necessary to balance emissions that Interface has not yet been able to reduce. Ultimately, the company said it intends to balance its carbon impact without them.

“Now everything we do, every aspect of our business, is carbon neutral,” said Laurel Hurd, CEO of Interface. “We have worked tirelessly to radically decarbonize, tapping into our culture of innovation and design, resulting in what we believe are the lowest cradle-to-gate carbon footprint carpet tile products on the market even before applying offsets. We are incredibly proud of this achievement, and we’re not stopping here. We will continue to decarbonize even further. Reduce first, keep reducing and balance what’s left with credible offsets until those offsets are no longer necessary. That is our way.”

Interface said it believes in verifying its carbon management plans, as well as emissions and carbon credits, against rigorous, internationally recognized standards. The company’s third-party verifier reviewed this information against PAS 2060 for 2021 to assure the Carbon Neutral Enterprise achievement. Interface plans to conduct an annual review and re-certification to maintain its status.

“To become a carbon negative enterprise by 2040, we must store more carbon than we emit without the use of offsets,” Hurd added. “Along the way, we continue to transform our own operations and materials and partner with our suppliers to further reduce Scope 3 emissions. If Interface can do it, every company can. We continue to invite others to join us as we work to reverse global warming and create a climate fit for life.”
