Social Responsibility

We seek to live our values every day, which represent who we are, how we see the world, how we treat each other, including our external customers and stakeholders, and how we approach our work. Our culture of inclusion challenges our people to pursue the unknown and do the right thing. We embrace the diversity of our community and commit to an equitable, inclusive culture.

We continue our commitment to conduct business in an ethical and responsible manner and to do our part to advance human rights, diversity, equity, and inclusion.

This commitment to creating +Positive Spaces™ extends to our employees, too. We endeavor to make our people happier because we know what this can bring in terms of innovation, creativity, and togetherness. Our people are at the center of everything we do and guide us to do business ethically and responsibly.”

Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI)

When we embrace the diversity of our community and commit to an equitable, inclusive culture, we are living our Interface values. We are engaging and collaborative, seeking input from our employees to make sure underrepresented voices are heard and solutions reflect a broad set of perspectives.

We are curious and inventive, genuinely caring, and use data and research to help drive our people-oriented strategy and decisions. Through sharing, teaching, and leading, we energize others to help us all make meaningful progress – internally at Interface and with our customers, suppliers, and partners.

We want all employees and stakeholders to feel they belong with Interface and to have the opportunity to thrive.
