Interface Recognized For Green Initiatives

At the recent National Green Power Marketing Conference in Albany, N.Y., the US Environmental Protection Agency, US Department of Energy and Center for Resource Solutions presented Atlanta-based carpet and upholstery fabrics manufacturer Interface Inc. and its Interface Fabrics and Bentley Prince Street companies with a Green Power Leadership Award. The award recognizes Interface's purchases of renewable energy credits (RECs) equivalent to 8,807 megawatt hours of power. Bentley Prince Streets commercial carpet facility in City of Industry, Calif., generates 100 percent of its electricity using RECs and other green sources. Interface Fabrics uses Green-e certified wind RECs to produce 1 million linear yards of Terratex® upholstery and panel fabrics per year. Interface Flooring Systems also uses wind RECs to power its operations.

Interface Inc.'s Atlanta showroom opened in Spring 2004.

In other news, Interfaces showroom in Atlanta has received the first Platinum Award for the US Green Building Councils Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design for Commercial Interiors (LEED-CI) Pilot Program. The showroom meets or exceeds LEED-CI criteria for site selection, water and energy efficiency, atmosphere, construction waste diversion from landfills, furniture and fixture reuse, and indoor environmental quality.
