  • La validación por parte de SBTi (Objetivos basados en la ciencia) de los objetivos de reducción de gases de efecto invernadero (GEI) para 2030, un hito importante en el viaje de Interface para convertirse en una compañía con huella de carbono negativa en el año 2040
  • La continuidad en la fabricación de todos los productos a nivel globar, neutros en cuanto a emisiones de carbono a lo largo de todo su ciclo de vida a través del programa Carbon. Neutral Floors™ verificado por terceros; se retiraron 442 000 toneladas métricas de créditos de carbono verificados en 2021.
  • El establecimiento de un marco de DEI; se invirtió en las mejores herramientas del mercado y en una plataforma para mejorar de la visibilidad de los datos.
  • El lanzamiento de una encuesta global de cultura y DEI para recoger los comentarios de los empleados.

El informe ESG 2021 también ofrece transparencia sobre las emisiones globales de gases de efecto invernadero (GEI) de la empresa, la huella de carbono por tipo de producto, el uso de materiales reciclados y biológicos, el uso de energías renovables y la demografía de empleados utilizando métodos de divulgación tradicionales y siguiendo un enfoque de la Iniciativa de Informes Globales (GRI) y el Consejo de Normas de Contabilidad de Sostenibilidad (SASB).

«Los avances que logramos en 2021 sentaron las bases para asegurar el éxito a largo plazo», continuó Hurd. «Esto no habría sido posible sin nuestro equipo global de Interface, que sigue siendo el centro de todo lo que hacemos. Con una base sólida, esperamos trabajar junto con nuestros clientes, socios, proveedores y empleados a medida que continuamos avanzando en nuestro viaje hacia una mayor sostenibilidad y responsabilidad».
