23 Product Innovation The First Cradle-to-Gate Carbon Negative Carpet Tile ▪ Our goal is to make products with the lowest carbon footprint possible – products that go beyond neutral to help restore the health of the planet ▪ We’ve innovated ways to work with recycled content and bio-based materials – which has led us to make carpet tiles that store carbon, preventing its release into the atmosphere ▪ When we stop seeing carbon as the enemy and start using it as a resource, great things can happen. Taking our cue from nature, we can learn to work with carbon, using it as a building block to engineer better products Raw Material Acquisition Disposal Use Manufacturing The carbon life cycle In the life of almost any product, carbon dioxide is released into the atmosphere. This release of carbon happens in two stages: the embodied carbon stage and the operational carbon stage Operational carbon The carbon emitted after our product is installed. This phase includes customer use through end-of-life. Also known as "gate to end-of-life", this phase is much harder for us to control. So we purchase offsets and we reclaim and recycle our products at the end of their useful life OPERATIONAL CARBON Embodied carbon The carbon dioxide emitted by making our products. This phase covers raw material creation, growth and extraction, through manufacture, until a product is ready for sale. Also known as "cradle to gate", this is the most exciting phase for us because we can engineer our embodied carbon footprint to negative EMBODIED CARBON CQuestTMGB Backing A new-and-improved version of our GlasBacTM backing. It features the same superior performance with a construction of post-consumer carpet tiles, bio-based additives, and pre-consumer recycled materials, which are net carbon negative CQuestTMBio Backing A non-vinyl backing made with biopolymers, and bio-based and recycled fillers which are net carbon negative CQuestTM BioX Backing Our most carbon negative backing. It's the same material make-up as CQuestTMBio with a higher concentration of carbon negative materials
