The Green Vanguard: Z is for Zero-Carbon
INTERFACE, DESIGNTEX, TANDUS, and SHAW
The carpet industry has made great strides in pushing sustainability. Now that virtually everyone is touting a green story, the bar has been raised. Fortunately, most of the big companies have zero-carbon initiatives under way. Interface’s Mission Zero, the most ambitious program, wants to lower the company’s environmental footprint to zero by 2020. Designtex, meanwhile, is partnering with Native Energy to achieve carbon neutrality, and Tandus and Shaw recently released carbon-neutral and carbon-free collections. Here’s hoping the rest of the contract industry follows suit.
