In this episode, commARCH has a dialogue with Lisa Conway, Vice President of Sustainability at Interface, to discuss the ever-more-important need for businesses to engage in sustainable practices and how Interface pursues its sustainability mission.
We spoke with Lisa about Interface's mission to achieve sustainable operations and improve the planet, her deep personal commitments to building a more sustainable world, and what it means to achieve all of this while operating a business in the flooring space.
Lisa Conway serves as VP of Sustainability at Interface – the global flooring manufacturer that is leading the industry to “love the world.” She and her team are responsible for regional activation of the company’s mission: Climate Take Back. Lisa is passionate about bringing awareness to the interconnectedness of environmental sustainability and human health. To drive understanding around the impact of carbon on human health, Lisa and her team provide educational programming on the need for transparency and prioritization of embodied carbon in specifications within the building industry.
