2015 Corporate Sustainability Report

Shaw Industries dedication to creating the most beautiful – and sustainable – flooring in the world drives everything we do, every step of the way. From our choice of ingredient materials to the Cradle to Cradle® design of our products, to our support for charitable causes and not-for-profit organisations around the world, we believe sustainable design is responsible design.

Through our commitment to Sustainability Through Innovation™, Shaw is dedicated to creating a better future for our customers, our associates and our communities. And to upholding the highest standards of global corporate citizenship in the process.

Each year, we share our investment and progress towards a better future through our annual Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) sustainability report.

This year’s Corporate Sustainability report reflects a year of positive progress for our company as we work towards our visit of ‘Creating a better future for our customers, for our people, for our company, and for our communities’.
