In 1994, Ray had his legendary “spear in the chest” epiphany. He shook the foundations of the petroleum-intensive carpet manufacturing industry by declaring that Interface was committed to becoming the world’s first environmentally sustainable—and, ultimately, restorative—company.
Interface is committed to transparency and our Environmental Product Declarations, or EPDs, ensure that carpet tile specifiers can make an apples to apples comparison when looking at environmental attributes.
At Interface, we live where we work. This may seem fundamental, but it makes us unique in the carpet industry. To be global in thought and action—with outposts and people on the ground in six continents—is truly extraordinary.
ECS Certificates Australia
Carpets certified to ECS levels 2, 3 and 4 are deemed to satisfy the requirements of the 'VOC' or 'Reduced Exposure to Pollutants' credits in legacy Green Star rating tools as well as the Indoor Pollutants credit in Green Star Design & As Built and Green Star Interiors.
Take care of our planet: recycle with Interface’s ReEntry carpet recycling program, which also helps make our carpets sustainable.
