San Francisco, Calif. -- Jay Gould, Interface CEO, announced the company’s goal to become a carbon negative company by 2040 at the Global Climate Action Summit. The modular flooring company will achieve this by innovating in three key areas: raw materials, supply chain, and operations. This announcement builds on the company’s Mission Zero commitment of eliminating environmental impact by 2020, as well as its newest mission, Climate Take Back, which challenges the company, and the industry at large, to become more proactive in finding and implementing climate change solutions.

The Global Climate Action Summit was organized to bring together global leaders in the private and public sector who are leading the charge on pushing down global emissions and ready to declare goals for carbon neutrality and other sustainability initiatives.
