“At Interface, purpose and profits do not compete for resources. We believe in a purpose driven approach that creates value for all of our stakeholder groups equally, our employees, our customers, our shareholders, and the environment.

Led by our founder, Ray Anderson, our business began an awe-inspiring journey in 1994 to eliminate any negative impact we have on the environment. We have eliminated waste, switched to renewable energy sources, and built closed-loop manufacturing systems. We’ve shifted toward more sustainable raw materials which have dramatically changed our products and supply chains. We did this with help from customers, suppliers, partners, biologists, and our 4,000 teammates around the world.

Our next audacious goal is to become a carbon negative enterprise, across our company and operations, by 2040.

While we have come a long way in my 39 years with the Company, much work remains. I am optimistic that we can deliver on this challenge, and I believe we can make it possible.”

–Dan Hendrix, Chairman of the Board
