Actions
waste in ÷ waste out >1 Net User of Waste Decreases the amount of waste we produce in the manufacturing process and increases the reuse of waste materials in place of virgin raw materials. We invest in technology to produce flooring as cleanly, efficiently and conservatively as possible.
Purple Martins An environmentally sound approach to insect control - attracting purple martins. These birds eat lots of insects. We have purple martin gourds in our facilities and the populations of these migratory birds are growing.
Sample Return One of the simplest ways to conserve resources is to reuse what we can. Return samples utilizing our postage-paid return labels and we will reuse the sample and send it on to the next user.
Department of Energy Better Plants Partner Energy is a critical resource for our company and to our country. Mannington has set an ambitious goal to increase our energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions. Over the next ten years, we will reduce our energy intensity by 25%. We have partnered with the US Dept of Energy and are now nationally recognized as a Better Plants Partner.
