Interface leaps toward Mission Zero goal

Did you know Interface is not only the world’s largest carpet tile manufacturer, but also an environmental pioneer? The company began Mission Zero, its journey to become a fully sustainable manufacturer with zero negative impact, in 1996 – and has recently announced several exciting steps toward this goal.

Specifically at its European manufacturing facility in Scherpenzeel, The Netherlands, Interface is:
·         Operating with 100% renewable energy (both electricity and gas)
·         Using virtually no water in manufacturing
·         Achieving zero waste to landfill 

These accomplishments have helped Interface achieve a 95% water reduction and 90% carbon reduction across its European factories – and represent a significant leap toward its Mission Zero pledge.

But don’t mistake these recent milestones as Interface becoming complacent. The company is still on track to fully reach Mission Zero by 2020.

Read more about Interface’s recent sustainable efforts on the company’s website and by viewing the video below. Because of accomplishments like these, we’re proud to have Interface as a CARE sustaining partner!
