At Godfrey Hirst, we are challenging ourselves to design, manufacture and distribute innovative products with reduced environmental and social impacts.
As part of the world’s largest flooring manufacturer, we feel a profound sense of responsibility to advance our shared mission of a more sustainable future.
Let’s do better together.
Proudly Carbon Neutral
Taking real climate action means voluntarily going above and beyond current regulations to achieve net zero carbon emissions. At Godfrey Hirst we do – and that’s why we’ve proudly achieved Climate Active Carbon Neutral organisation status.
Environmental Certification Scheme
An extension of the Australian Carpet Classification Scheme (ACCS program), the Carpet Institute of Australia also run the Environmental Certification Scheme (ECS )which looks at the environmental performance of a carpet. The ECS program has four levels of certification with Level 4 being the highest standard.
When it comes to material health, it’s what’s on the inside that matters most. Leading the way in healthy and environmentally conscious flooring, Godfrey Hirst is actively participating in the Declare program, and a number of our carpets have been officially certified Declare™ Red List Free.
Global GreenTag is a third-party certification system that makes it easy to recognise products solutions that contribute to a more sustainably built environment. A range of our hybrid and vinyl flooring products have been awarded GreenRate Level A, the highest possible GreenRate certification.
