A Message from our CEO
Thank You for Your Interest in Climate Take Back™
We’re optimistic about our planet’s future and believe we have the opportunity to create a climate fit for life. To start off 2018 we’ve set a goal to donate $40,000 to Project Drawdown, an organization funding global warming solutions.
You can help us reach this goal by simply sharing our social post or signing up to receive our sustainability newsletter using the form on the right. Each time you take one of those actions, we’ll donate $1 to the cause, up to $20,000, which will be matched by a $20,000 donation from us. This represents our ongoing Mission Zero® promise to eliminate any negative impact the company has on the environment by 2020.
To learn more about our Climate Take Back mission and how we view the current crisis not as a problem but as an opportunity, read this message from our CEO, Jay Gould.
Join us for Climate Take Back
Now is the time for us to act, and we invite you to join us. We believe that humanity has the power to change our climate and decide what happens next to our planet. We may have changed the climate by mistake, but we can change it through intent. We have the tools, the ideas and the ingenuity to ensure every living thing on this planet can benefit from a climate fit for life.
Carbon as a Resource
Take Love Carbon for example. The buildings in which we work, learn and sleep are a key cause of global warming, accounting for a third of global carbon emissions. But it doesn’t have to be this way. What if we saw carbon as a resource rather than a problem?
Across the world there is a movement seeking to re-imagine our relationship with carbon. For a comprehensive exploration of the potential of carbon dioxide removal to create a climate fit for life, check out this recent New Yorker article by Elizabeth Kolbert.
In May 2017, we unveiled our Proof Positive concept tile, the world’s first carbon negative carpet tile. Through the use of plant-derived carbon and creating closed loops for the materials’ reuse and recycling, this prototype locks in carbon to the extent that this tile stores more carbon than it emits during its production.
Taking a Stand on Carpet Recycling

In 2018 we will speak louder than ever about Climate Take Back – and we’d love to add your voice and optimism.
I recently shared our vision at Bloomberg BNA’s Sustainable Business Summit in New York. Check out this video interview on how we use sustainability to drive innovation and profitability.
Find out more about Climate Take Back in these short videos featuring me, our CSO Erin Meezan, and the ecologist and founder of Project Drawdown, Paul Hawken. If our plans resonate with you and you want to join the Climate Take Back, sign up for our monthly updates below and even ask your company whether it sees carbon as a resource or the enemy.
