Consistently seeking out the boldest and most progressive ways to push a sustainable agenda, Interface’s ReEntry project with Knight Frank and Real I.S. goes above and beyond for a climate-smart future.
July 29th, 2019
Climate change has transformed the commercial landscape. And industry leaders that have directly impacted the built environment is Knight Frank and Real I.S. So they set themselves some ambitious goals, to do more than carbon offsetting and completely embrace all the elements along the chain – and a commercial tower in Canberra became the test case. In partnership with Interface, they were able to minimise greenhouse gas emissions, as well as the whole commercial property’s carbon footprint, all while looking forward to its future impact.
The outcome saw an incredible 42,000-square-metres of modular flooring recycled through Interface’s ReEntry program. Through the process 100 per cent of the old carpet tile was successfully recycled into new carpet, saving it from landfill and going into waste to energy.
Part of the ecological and thoughtful approach that ReEntry represents, Interface is focused on making sure that all of its products are more than just sustainable and are instead sustainable into the future as well.
The project as a whole has successfully closed the loop on material waste.
