(MENAFN Press) Interface, a worldwide leader in the design and manufacture of carpet tiles has entered the hospitality sector for the first time with their latest sustainable product collections showcased at the Eco-Hotel exhibition in Abu Dhabi today.



Designed to provide sustainable business opportunities for the hospitality industry, the products are proof that Interface is pushing the boundaries of what is possible “ continually innovating in order to meet customer demands to supply sustainable products in the region.



Visitors can source more information about the collection from the Interface stand at Eco-Hotel, running alongside the World Future Energy Summit taking place until 22 January 2014 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.



Held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, the World Future Energy Summit is the world's foremost event dedicated to renewable energies, energy efficiency and clean technologies.



Steven Pratt, Regional Director for Interface Middle East, said: "Interface has been on a path towards sustainability since 1994 and our Mission Zero pledge “ to eliminate our impact on the environment by 2020 “ influences every aspect of the business, inspiring each of us to continually push the boundaries



"The company has achieved worldwide attention for its remarkable progress in developing sustainable carpet tiles. Participating in Eco“Hotel further emphasises our steadfast commitment to working with customers and suppliers to show them the way to sustainability, spanning every aspect of our operations, from the design and manufacturing to end-of-life recycling.



"With sustainability one of the key themes of the World Expo 2020 in Dubai, Interface's efforts are particularly relevant now as the Emirate seeks to establish new benchmarks in its commitment to environmental consciousness and also strives to achieve Sheikh Mohammed's vision of a green economy, working to reduce energy demand by 30 per cent by 2030," added Pratt



Interface has been operating in the Middle East for more than 30 years through a network of distributors and was awarded The Most Sustainable Large Corporation at the BGreen Awards in Dubai last month for the commendable progress in its manufacturing technologies, which uses 95 per cent less water now compared to 20 years ago.



Other highlights from the most recent Interface annual data metrics portfolio suggest the carbon footprint of the average Interface product is down 19 percent since 2008 while 49 percent of the total raw materials used by the company today, are now recycled or bio-based.



Interface has also made significant progress toward its pledge to provide Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) that detail the entire life cycle impact of a product on all its standard products; there are currently 48 registered EPDs for products made in Europe, US, Australia and Thailand.
