Calhoun, GA, June 7, 2022-Mannington Commercial announced that new and refreshed products launched in 2022 across its carpet, luxury vinyl tile (LVT), rubber and resilient sheet lines will be 105% carbon offset.
This means customers will have the assurance of knowing the products they specify will be carbon negative or carbon neutral at the least. From raw material extraction through manufacturing (known as “cradle-to-gate”), the products will not contribute to the release of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, a key driver of greenhouse gas emissions.
Currently, more than a dozen new and refreshed products are being carbon offset. With many more products slated for introduction later in the year, Mannington Commercial estimates its total carbon offsets for 2022 will be the equivalent to removing more than 10,000 gas cars from the road for a year. New 2022 rug products are not currently included but will be added soon.
The initiative is a critical step to the company’s goal of accelerating decarbonization from its operations and supply chain. It also addresses the most urgent environmental needs facing the floorcovering industry: clean energy, waste diversion and greenhouse gas emissions.
