Interface is now a third-party certified Carbon Neutral Enterprise.

We are Innovators

When it comes to what goes into our flooring, we’ll always ask, “What if? How can we make this better?” At Interface we’re continually investing in the latest machinery, chemistry systems and materials science, all to do better for our customers and for the world.

We’re known for pushing boundaries and for our innovations in biomimicry and recycling. We’re taking these aspirations even further and engineering products that go beyond carbon neutral to carbon negative.

Here is just a sampling of the product innovations we’re proud to put our name on.

Our First Carbon Negative Carpet Tile

Less carbon in the atmosphere. More beauty on your floor. That’s what we had in mind when we developed our first carbon negative flooring products.

Guided by materials science, we’ve transformed our global backings systems with our carbon negative CQuest™ backings.

This innovation, in combination with specific carpet tile designs, means we can now offer carbon negative carpet tiles. It's proof that the pursuits of great design and sustainability are inseparable.

Carbon Neutral Floors™

Since 2003, our Carbon Neutral Floors program has helped designers create spaces with a lower carbon footprint, which ultimately helps to improve the health of the planet. In 2019 we expanded our program globally to include nora® rubber flooring, and in 2021 we added our rigid core. Today, Interface flooring products, including LVT, carpet tile, rigid core and nora rubber, are carbon neutral across their full product life cycle.

While we’ve come a long way, we’re still not perfect. What we can’t control in production and manufacture, we offset. To be exact: 5.3 million metric tonnes of verified emission reduction credits to date. And counting.

Recycling

We changed the face of recycling in the US in 1995, and then we took it to the world.

At Interface, our ReEntry® recycling and reclamation program puts our sustainability goals into practice.

Each year we divert millions of pounds of post-consumer carpet from landfills, feeding compatible materials that we re-use in our products. Our ReEntry process recycles Interface carpet and LVT products as well as flooring from our competitors and follows a closed loop system; a manufacturing practice that turns used flooring into new flooring.
