Carnegie is a sponsor of the 2021 Metropolis Perspective: Sustainability Symposium
But transparency is just the beginning, Carnegie has also committed to making their products more sustainable . In 2007, their flagship offering, Xorel, was the first wallcovering to achieve Cradle to Cradle Silver Certification. As a forever PVC-free company, Carnegie has also been a leader in developing alternatives to conventional printed PVC wallcoverings. They pioneered the development of Thermoplastic Olefin (TPO) products and now lead the market in offering designers alternatives to PVCs.
Over decades of making performance fabrics, Carnegie has learned that it’s important to develop products that stand up on their own without the use of potentially toxic coatings and finishes. Their signature Xorel does not use any added finishes or coatings to improve its performance, and they develop their entire product range under the mantra that “the best finish is no finish.”
