ATLANTA — Interface, the world’s largest commercial modular carpet company and a sustainable business pioneer, announced Wednesday a milestone in the company’s Mission Zero initiative — the Americas manufacturing sites now operate using 96 percent renewable energy.
The renewable energy operation in the Americas brings the company’s global renewable energy usage to 84 percent. The renewable energy comes from directed biogas to meet the thermal energy needs of the company’s flagship operations in Troup County.
“Getting our factories in Americas to near 100 percent in renewable energy is a significant achievement — one that is a first for our industry and likely for industry in general,” said Erin Meezan, vice president of sustainability for Interface Inc. “When we began our focus on Mission Zero 22 years ago, renewable energy was at the heart of our strategy to eliminate our carbon footprint. Four years before our milestone year of 2020, we are ahead of plan and on track to achieve our 2020 goals.”
