Ray Anderson – From environmental plunderer to “America’s Greenest CEO” in 5 years

Environmental plunderer? In fact, this is how Anderson referred to himself in the video address below.
For those of you familiar with Interface and Ray Anderson, his being chosen by Forbes magazine as America’s Greenest CEO is no surprise. How he got there, and how quickly, may. Here is a video of his address at the TED Talks meeting I’m sure you’ll enjoy. Interface’s headquarters is a LEED Platinum facility and Anderson really lives the green story.

Interface’s Atlanta showroom proves that green design is beautiful, functional, and worthy of recognition. This space uses innovative features like daylighting (which saves energy and has been proven to improve mood),  sustainable flooring and building materials to show off Interface’s products. The showroom is the first in the world to achieve a Platinum Rating under the US Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, Commercial Interior (LEED-CI) Green Building Rating System.

As a LEED AP (CI) I can truly appreciate the level of commitment it took to achieve this rating. And this is not all.  Anderson has committed his company to a zero-carbon footprint track. He has my vote.

All the best,


Chris Moline, LEED AP
