Jacobsen & Shaw Contract

Our exclusive New Zealand distribution partner is Jacobsen; a private, family run business, wholly owned by Jacobsen Holdings, that imports and distributes commercial and residential flooring products. 

Jacobsen was established in 1962 by Wesley Jacobsen and has been in business for over 60 years. They operate branch offices in each of NZ's main centres (Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch), with their Head Office and National Distribution Centre based in Auckland.


Neutral is not enough

This is more than flooring.

While carbon offsets are a step in the right direction, they are not enough on their own to combat the effects of climate change. We need to take a holistic approach and focus on embodied carbon and carbon emissions.

By addressing both, we’re not just offsetting our impact — we’re actively working to reduce it. Being neutral is not enough.

It is more than a product or process or specification or a company buying carbon credits.

It is more than designing things that are good for the earth — what we’re taking away from it and what we’re giving back.

It is more than material health or circular economy or diversity or carbon impact. And it is more than being carbon neutral.

We will work with you to reduce our carbon footprint once and for all.

Because neutral is not enough.


Our sustainability mission encompasses not only the environmental health of our products and our operations, but also how our products impact human experience. Social and environmental initiatives are inextricably linked because people and planet are fundamentally connected. Material Health, Circularity, Carbon Impact, and D,E,&I are the four pillars of our environmental pledge, People Together, Planet Forever.

Our products provide the foundation for spaces where thinkers innovate, students learn, patients heal and travellers rest. Our view of sustainability encompasses not only the environmental health of our products and our operations, but also how our products impact human experience. The products we make undergo rigorous testing for product human impact and environmental impact through the Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Products Program.
