InterfaceFlor Commits to Architecture 2030 Challenge for Products
- Feb 16, 2012
Lagrange, Ga.—InterfaceFLOR, a global manufacturer of modular carpet tile, has aligned with Architecture 2030 and is the first manufacturer to adopt the nonprofit organization’s 2030 Challenge for Products.
The 2030 Challenge for Products initiative calls on the architecture, planning, design and building communities worldwide to specify, design and manufacture products that will meet a carbon footprint of 30 percent below the product average through 2014, and subsequently improve on this reduction: 35 percent in 2015; 40 percent in 2020; 45 percent in 2025; and 50 percent in 2030.
While InterfaceFLOR is the first manufacturer onboard for Architecture 2030, several of the most influential sustainability-driven organizations are supporting the undertaking, including Athena Sustainable Materials Institute, BuildingGreen, Carbon Leadership Forum, The Green Standard, Green Wizard, Healthy Building Network and Sphere E.
