As a not-for-profit initiative, we seek sponsorship funds to secure the long term future of the Awards. We invite organisations to provide financial support to develop the Green Gown Awards in return for sharing their sustainability knowledge and brand exposure.
Interface is a global leader in the design and manufacture of sustainable modular flooring, suitable for any education environment. Where we learn matters. Designing by tile gives you creative and economic flexibility to design inspiring and engaging spaces to attract a new generation of students to study, work, live or socialise in. Combine our extensive range of colours, textures and patterns to create the perfect space to stimulate the senses and the mind.
Interface is recognised as a global leader in sustainability. In 1994 we were one of the first companies to publicly commit to sustainability, known as Mission Zero® to eliminate any negative impact on the environment by 2020. Our manufacturing facility in the Netherlands now runs on 100% renewable energy (both gas and electric), We also virtually use no water in our manufacturing processes and European facilities send no waste to landfill. Net-Works is the first step in creating a truly restorative loop in carpet tile production. In partnership with the Zoological Society of London (ZSL), we buy discarded fishing nets from poor communities, which are used to create new yarn. This means fewer ghost nets, less virgin materials and a new source of income for the communities.
