Sustainability™ Through Innovation™ – That's the Shaw Green Edge®

It's our commitment to create the most beautiful – and sustainable – flooring in the world. And to help create a better planet for our customers, our people and our communities in the process.

Rooted in our drive to continuously improve every aspect of our business, the Shaw Green Edge® guides everything we do, every day – from maintaining the health and well-being of our people and communities, conserving energy and water, and recycling raw materials – to designing Cradle to Cradle products that can be remanufactured over and over again.

Because setting the standard for environmental excellence, social responsibility and product design is more than our responsibility. It's also good business. And it's our legacy.
