Interface has always been a forward-thinking and highly-innovative flooring company, but its latest initiative is very-much industry leading in every sense of the phrase.

As Aidan Mullan says, “As human activity releases more and more carbon dioxide, the natural world is struggling to keep up. So why create products that contribute to this problem and do more harm than good? ?”

“Taking our cue from nature”, says Mullen, “we’ve learned to work with carbon by using it as a building block to engineer better products. This journey has led us to create products that store carbon, keep it out of the atmosphere and help restore the health of the world.”

And so Interface’s road to carbon negativity concept was born, an idea that as Mullen explains in this wide-ranging podcast, is now imperative both for the industry itself as well as for the climate as a whole.
