LOVE CARBON.And use it to build better products.
The most sustainable flooring we’ve ever made
Backings that give back
First, we added new bio-based materials, and more recycled content to our backings. Then, we measured how these materials influence the carbon footprint. These new materials, measured on a stand-alone basis, are net carbon negative – reducing our carbon footprint – and resulting in carbon negative backings.
The carbon negative carpet tile.
Our work doesn’t end with our backings. The carbon negative materials in the CQuest™BioX backing, in combination with specialty yarns and tufting processes, results in a carbon negative carpet tile. The finished product brings together durability, industry-leading design, and a negative carbon footprint that ultimately benefits the planet.
Note: Carpet tiles made with CQuest™Bio and CQuest™GB, while they do not have a negative embodied carbon footprint, are carbon neutral throughout their full product life cycle through our Carbon Neutral Floors™ Program.
Learning to love carbon
When we stop seeing carbon as the enemy and start using it as a resource, great things can happen. Taking our cue from nature, we can learn to work with carbon, using it as a building block to engineer better products.
Watch the Love Carbon film to learn how we worked with carbon to develop our CQuest™ backings.
