  • Interface, Inc., an Atlanta-based fabric manufacturer, has reinvented its pollution-intensive, petroleum-dependent manufacturing operation into a business that uses and promotes environmentally sustainable practices. The company manifested its greening with its first showroom and retail space in its headquarters city. Opened to the public in 2004, the showroom was designed and built with the goal of being designated a Platinum Project under the U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC’s) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for Commercial Interiors (LEED-CI) pilot program. There were rigorous criteria for achieving a LEED-CI designation in the pilot project. The showroom was the first project to achieve LEED-CI Platinum status.
