Our Sustainability Efforts

Delivery

Moving raw materials, moving finished products, big trucks using lots of fuel and emitting lots of greenhouse gas. FLOR could not profess a mission of sustainability without giving serious consideration to moving all our FLOR-related stuff from A to B to C and beyond. But things must be moved, so here are a few ways we try to minimize the impact:

From Here to There (Sourcing Local)

Even if we weren't concerned about the environment, we'd still be perfectionists. And that means we're not so keen on having our products produced half-way around the world where we can't see or be involved in the manufacturing process. We like to keep an eye on quality. In person. So we keep things local. In our case, this means the State of Georgia. And since it just so happens that we're also sustainability-driven, local production limits flying our product and ourselves all over the world to get work done and get FLOR to you, which significantly reduces our transportation costs, emissions and, ultimately, our environmental impact.

Compensate (Trees for Travelâ„¢ and Cool Co2mmute)

Our parent company, Interface, has sponsored the planting of more than 87,000 trees since 1997 to offset air travel by employees in partnership with American Forests, a world leader in tree planting for environmental restoration. In addition, through our Cool Co2mmute program, employees and Interface share the cost of purchasing trees that will offset the carbon dioxide emissions associated with the fuel they consume. More than 3,400 trees have been planted through the Cool Co2mmute program since 2002.
