Conservation is at Our Core
As responsible stewards of the environment, we believe in using all resources as efficiently and judiciously as possible — prioritizing conservation and consumption reduction before recycling or reuse. With conservation at the heart of our sustainability philosophy, finding alternatives for (and preventing the excessive use of) valuable resources is the basis of our approach to environmental impact management.
We believe true sustainability requires full attention to the potential impacts of every aspect of our business. Like other leading companies, we gauge our progress by measuring our environmental and social performance with as much stringency as our financial performance.
Efficient Solution Dye
Our commercial division was one of the first commercial flooring manufacturers to extrude their own solution dyed yarn, which reduces water usage, energy consumption and carbon emissions compared to other yarn dye techniques.
The sustainability philosophy of
EF Contract is a common sense approach.
At the forefront is the investment in the most-efficient manufacturing facilities in the industry, using less energy and producing industry-leading quality levels, which means less waste. We design our products from the ground up to lead the pack in durability, while also integrating raw materials with recycled content wherever possible. Our commercial sustainability efforts are guided by continuous and quantifiable improvement, big-picture thinking, and full transparency.
The primary focus is to create the smallest environmental footprint possible through the engineering of our products, processes, and facilities. To further reduce that impact, EF Contract currently supports renewable energy carbon offset projects, of utmost importance in helping the world to achieve its goal in lowering global GHG emissions to offset the emissions of some of our product lines. Our carbon off-sets are centered around renewable energy and are easier to quantify, which leaves less question as to how the offsets are calculated.
