One Year After His Death, Remembering Sustainability Pioneer Ray Anderson
Ray Anderson, CEO of InterfaceFLOR, took his company from a traditional petroleum-based carpet maker to a green pioneer whose name comes up frequently when people talk about merging deep sustainability
Anderson pioneered the idea of modular carpeting, so that if one area is worn out, you can just pop in a couple of new carpet squares instead of replacing the whole darn thing.
In his last years, Anderson created an ambitious program geared toward making Interface a zero-waste company.
