A backing that gives back
Guided by materials science, we’ve added new thinking and innovative new materials to make backings with a much lower carbon footprint.
First, we added new bio-based materials, and more recycled content to our backings. Then, we measured how these materials influence the carbon footprint. These new materials, measured on a stand-alone basis, are net carbon negative – greatly reducing our carbon footprint.
Introducing our CQuest™BioX backing:
Our First Carbon Negative
The latest milestone in Interface’s Climate Take Back mission to help you reduce the carbon footprint of your space. Our Embodied Beauty™ carpet tile collection contains three carbon negative styles; Shishu Stitch™, Tokyo Texture™, and Zen Stitch™ that use our new CQuest™BioX backing .
CQuest BioX combines new bio-based materials that are carbon negative alongside increased levels of recycled content. When combined with specialty yarns and tufting processes, this results in a carbon negative carpet tile from cradle to gate.
Shishu Stitch™, Tokyo Texture™, and Zen Stitch™ part of our Embodied Beauty™ carpet tile collection each have a carbon footprint of -0.3 kg CO2/m2 (cradle to gate).
