Sustainability

All Metrics

Interface's sustainability journey is made more focused by measuring our progress.

Our EcoMetrics™ measurement system is designed to quantify the “metabolism” of our operations. In other words, how much we take, in terms of materials and energy, how much we make, in terms of product, and how much we waste, in terms of wastes and emissions.
