Carbon Neutral Floors™

Design with the climate in mind

Global warming impacts everyone. Interface Carbon Neutral Floors™ help you lower your carbon footprint with one positive step.

The flooring products that we sell – carpet tile, LVT, and nora rubber sheets and tiles – are carbon neutral across their full product life cycle. And we calculate your floor’s credentials so you can see its exact contribution to reducing global warming.

When you design and spec 800 square metres of Interface flooring, you offset the equivalent carbon emissions of nine round-trip flights between New York and Paris.

Our journey to
carbon neutral floors

We know the impact our flooring has on our planet—both carpet tile or LVT. And we’ve been leading the way to reduce the carbon footprint of our products for more than two decades.

We’ve continued to do this with our LVT, resulting in the offset of more than 3.9 million tonnes of carbon dioxide since 2002. We’ve also reduced the greenhouse gas emissions of our manufacturing by 96% and reduced the carbon footprint of our carpet tile by over 60% — the lowest in the industry. And now, we’re including all nora by Interface products, as well.

Embodied carbon

For any building it’s not just their heating and cooling that adds to carbon emissions, but also the materials and processes used to create them. And that includes flooring products. So, reducing this embodied carbon is the most urgent challenge of all.

Our products support you to meet your carbon goals because we have:
  • Changed how we design and make things, reducing the footprint of our carpet tile by over 60%
  • Balanced what we still can't avoid with carbon offsets that support renewable energy, fuel switching and reforestation to keep carbon in nature and out of the atmosphere
  • Supporting a climate fit for life

    Carbon Neutral Floors allows us to support a range of projects that are also working toward fostering a climate fit for life. Here are a few projects we’re supporting:

  • Madagascar, Thailand and China - New renewable energy projects involving solar, hydro and wind power to reduce the amount of carbon emissions entering the atmosphere.

  • Guatemala and Kenya - Community fuel switching and water purification projects tackling carbon emissions alongside human health and community empower.

  • US, Cambodia and Zimbabwe - Reforestation projects to keep carbon stored and sequestered in the soil and plants.
