As we celebrate the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, Ray Anderson, Chairman and founder of our parent company, Interface, speaks about the pivotal events that helped convince him to change his business model into one of sustainability and responsibility in a recent article he authored in the Wall Street Journal.
FLOR, as an Interface company, shares in the vision behind that goal set back in 1994 of zero environmental footprint by the year 2020. We call it Mission Zero and we’re proud to be part of a pioneering movement that has changed not only the carpet manufacturing industry but businesses, in general, around the globe. FLOR is contributing to the company’s 2020 goals through sustainably-driven practices like increasingly using renewable and recycled content in its products and offering consumers a Return & Recycle Program that helps to ensure that no FLOR product will ever end up in a landfill.
We realize we’re not 100% there yet, but re-dedicate our commitment to meeting the company’s Mission Zero goals by continuing to research and explore new and innovative ways to design, manufacture, ship and reclaim FLOR products.
