  • 3,700 solar panels are installed on the roof of our carpet tile manufacturing plant in Cartersville, Georgia - the largest photovoltaic array in the industry - to provide our clients with carpet tiles made with assistance from the sun.
  • We have reduced our greenhouse gas emissions by 30% since 2007
  • Our CDP Climate Change Score in 2014 was 31 points higher than the industry average - 60% better.

Our goal is a delightfully diverse, safe, healthy and just world, with clean air, water, soil and power - economically, equitably, ecologically, and elegantly enjoyed.
