Our Sustainability Pledge

At Shaw Contract, we believe we have responsibility to each other and to our habitat, to people & planet. We are living in times of urgent social and environmental change. As individuals, communities and societies, we are questioning how we can create a fairer, healthier future.


Our People Together, Planet Forever marque represents our commitment to smarter social and environmental impacts combined, and it will appear across all Shaw Contract communication touch points. It is a mark to motivate us and remind us of the bigger movement that join our actions and interactions. As such, it is a symbol of encouragement and positive intent. 


Points of Ambition

People and planet are fundamentally connected. Our social and environmental initiatives are inextricably linked.
