CRI Releases First Sustainability Report

To show a commitment to the environment and maintaining sustainable growth, the Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI), Dalton, Ga., has issued the carpet industrys first sustainability report. The report focuses on three key areas: environmental, economic and societal.CRI members are striving to be stewards in manufacturing environmentally responsible products and in developing solutions to carpet end-of-life issues, said Werner Braun, president. This report illustrates how the carpet industry is committed to environmental efforts by meeting or exceeding environmental regulations, making great strides in decreased landfill use; reducing waste; improving handling procedures; reducing impact on air and water; and conserving materials, energy and water.
