Interface aspires to be the proving ground for a new industrial revolution. By demonstrating that there is a better way to a bigger, more legitimate profit, we offer the world an undeniably improved business model that can serve as a paradigm for others to embrace.
Redesigning Our Company
In 1994, at age sixty and in his company’s twenty-second year, our founder and Chairman Ray Anderson steered our parent company Interface on a new course—one designed to reduce our environmental footprint while increasing our profits. His bold new vision was to create the first enterprise to become truly sustainable.
Redesigning Our Products
Interface Hospitality challenges assumptions and brings elegant approaches and innovative technology to the design of modular carpet for guest rooms, corridors and public spaces. By posing different questions, we developed a more holistic view of the impacts our products and processes have on the planet. This has allowed us to be more strategic in minimizing—and ultimately eliminating—the environmental impacts associated with our products.
Interface Hospitality's parent company Interface, Inc., shook the foundations of the petroleum-intensive carpet manufacturing industry when it committed to become the world’s first environmentally sustainable—and, ultimately, restorative—company.
At Interface Hospitality, we go beyond merely offering products with recycled content to actually reclaiming used carpet in order to convert it into new. As we design our products, we carefully consider their ultimate destination, doing whatever we can—including partnering with other carpet reclamation companies—to ensure no reclaimed carpet ends up in the landfill.
