Atlanta— Interface’s nora rubber flooring is now included in its Carbon Neutral Floors program, the company announced. As a result, Interface’s entire product portfolio — carpet tile, luxury vinyl tile and now nora rubber flooring — is carbon neutral across its product lifecycle as of January 1, 2019.
“Quickly after the acquisition, we committed ourselves to better understand nora’s rubber flooring manufacturing process and supply chain as part of our carbon neutral floors offering,” said Erin Meezan, chief sustainability officer, Interface. “While we have work to do to reduce the carbon footprint in rubber flooring manufacturing, we are beginning to apply our 25 years of experience reducing Interface’s carbon emissions to accelerate our progress on nora products. To reach carbon neutrality, we calculate the remaining greenhouse gas emissions for the entire lifecycle of our products and invest in verified emission reduction projects located all over the world to offset these emissions.”
