In its 2016 sustainability report, Shaw Industries Group Inc., a leading provider of floor coverings, has highlighted that 85 per cent of its products are now Cradle to Cradle certified. This achievement is a result of the recent addition of the company’s polyester carpet products to the expansive portfolio of Cradle to Cradle certified products.

Among the most rigorous third-party assessment programmes in the world, Cradle to Cradle certification has signified the company’s strong performance in material health as well as recyclability, energy, water and social fairness.

Titled Creating a Better Future, the report covers Shaw’s comprehensive approach to sustainability. It demonstrates the company’s commitment to transparency and to being nimble and responsive to the market while focusing on achieving the ambitious 2030 sustainability goals.

"This report reflects our daily quest to help create safe, healthy spaces that foster innovation, promote healing, encourage learning, and bring people together," said Paul Murray, Shaw vice president of sustainability and environmental affairs. "We are dedicated to carefully evaluating each advance in technology, chemistry, manufacturing, and processes to ensure that we are good stewards, using shared resources wisely to meet the diverse needs of all those who step foot on our products."

The company's 2030 sustainability goals include a 36 per cent reduction in actual vs. modeled water intensity since 2011, toward a goal of 50 per cent. It will work towards achieving 25 per cent reduction in actual vs. modeled greenhouse gas emissions intensity since 2010, towards a goal of 40 per cent. It aims for 16 per cent decrease in actual vs. modeled energy intensity since 2011, towards a goal of 40 per cent.

"Shaw is continuing to invest and evolve to succeed amidst ever accelerating change in every market in which we compete," said Vance Bell, Shaw chairman and CEO. "Sustainability will continue to be an important catalyst for the sort of innovation that will drive our enduring success." (RR)
