Interface Celebrates BRE Success with 123 A+ and A rated Products
Following a recent review with BRE, 123 of Interface products are now either A+ or A rated across the six building categories, including office and education buildings. 50 office products were awarded an A+ rating, both a tremendous achievement and a reflection of the steps the global carpet tile manufacturer have taken to reduce the environmental impact of their products.
Karen Warner, Marketing Director UK & Ireland at Interface said, “As a company, we strive to ensure our products create as little negative effects on the environment as possible and we want to go a step further – to be restorative, putting back more than we take out from the environment and the community.
“With these latest BRE ratings, our products are being recognised as having minimum environmental impact and we are proud of achieving such high standards across our product ranges. This latest update to our credentials will further assist customers in achieving BREEAM certification for projects.”
The outcome of the certification means Interface continue to offer the widest range of BRE certified products in the flooring industry.
The assessment is part of Interface’s business wide pledge to eliminate any negative impact it has on the environment by 2020. As of January 2014, Interface has been operating its flagship manufacturing facility in Scherpenzeel, The Netherlands, with 100% renewable energy (both electricity and gas), using virtually zero water in its manufacturing processes and has attained zero waste to landfill. The company has also recently switched to green gas in Scherpenzeel, which is created by anaerobic digestion of fish waste. The other main innovation has been a water recirculation system through closed loop piping.
