Last month, we announced that all our commercial carpet manufacturing operations are carbon neutral – that means we’re not creating a carbon footprint (by adding CO2 emissions) when we make our carpet.
To achieve carbon neutrality, we reduced our energy consumption, switched to cleaner fuels, and incentivized additional renewable energy development and usage through the purchase of renewable energy credits – including using renewable energy produced on site at some of our facilities, plus energy from the 1 MW solar array we installed on the roof of our carpet tile manufacturing facility in Cartersville, Georgia in 2013.
As a result, we’ve also reduced our company wide Greenhouse Gas emissions by approximately 25 percent since 2010 – and we’re working towards reducing our company’s total energy and GHG emissions (per pound of finished product) 40 percent by 2030.
So what does that mean for you?
First of all, choosing carbon neutral products helps reduce the environmental impact of your project. Whether you’re designing a single room or a whole facility, carbon neutral carpet and carpet tile are a great way to further limit the environmental impacts of your project.
Better yet, carbon neutral products are a long-term contribution to improving the health of our planet. While the challenge of climate change and other environmental issues might be global in scale, but many of the ways to address it start at home. Carbon neutral products are a positive way you can ensure the materials and products you select aren’t adding to the problem.
