ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Interface, Inc. (NASDAQ: TILE), a global commercial flooring company and global leader in sustainability, today announced that it is third-party certified as a Neutral Company in carbon. This achievement demonstrates the company’s voluntary and ambitious commitment to climate action.
Interface is a carbon neutral company under PAS 2060, the leading international standard for carbon neutrality created by the British Standards Institution (BSI).
To achieve this, Interface has transformed its factories, products and supply chain, including using innovative new raw materials for carbon storage, to significantly reduce its carbon emissions. Today, verified emissions credits are needed to balance the emissions that Interface has not yet been able to reduce. Ultimately, the company intends to balance its carbon impact without them.

Hurd continued, “We’re incredibly proud of this achievement, and we’re not stopping there. We will continue to decarbonise even more. Reduce first, keep reducing, and balance what’s left with believable offsets, until those offsets are no longer needed. It’s our way.
Interface believes in verifying its carbon management plans, as well as carbon emissions and credits, against rigorous, internationally recognized standards. The company’s third-party auditor has reviewed this information against PAS 2060 for 2021 to ensure the company is carbon neutral. Interface plans to conduct an annual review and recertification to maintain its status.
“To become a carbon negative business by 2040, we need to store more carbon than we emit without using offsets,” Hurd continued. “Along the way, we continue to transform our own operations and materials, and partner with our suppliers to further reduce Scope 3 emissions. If Interface can do it, all companies can. We continue to invite others to join us as we work to reverse global warming and create a climate fit for life.
