For over 45 years, Emerald Carpets has stood as the foremost manufacturer and supplier of trade show carpets in North America. Beyond being a leader in the industry, Emerald Carpets is dedicated to a mission that goes beyond business—it’s a commitment to sustainability that resonates through every fiber of their operation.

A Legacy of Quality and Sustainability

Emerald’s mission is clear: to provide unrivaled customer service while maintaining a keen eye on the future. Their dedication to reducing costs and adding value to the special events and trade show industry is apparent in their focus on sustainability. A significant part of this commitment is reflected in the production of the most sustainable carpets, essential for a successful trade show experience.

Reusability: A Pillar of Sustainability

The cornerstone of Emerald Carpets’ sustainability efforts lies in the reusability of their quality carpets. Crafted to endure the rigorous trade show floor environment, these carpets offer exhibitors and attendees not only aesthetic appeal but also noise control, cleanliness, and safety. Remarkably, some of their most successful carpets have been in use for over two decades, showcasing the impact of reusability on sustainability.
The reuse of carpets is a powerful contributor to environmental conservation, leading to substantial reductions in energy, water use, and carbon emissions compared to manufacturing new carpets for one-time use. Emerald Carpets takes this a step further with consolidated depot programs, enabling customers to reduce their carbon footprint through smaller production and distribution requirements.

Recycling for a Greener Tomorrow

Emerald Carpets is actively involved in recycling initiatives, exemplified by products like Matrix, which boasts post-industrial recycled content and consumes significantly less energy in production and reuse compared to alternatives. The EPAD underlayment, with 85% post-consumer recycled content, is a testament to their commitment to sustainability throughout a product’s lifecycle.
The company is pushing the boundaries of innovation with a proprietary carpet that is 100% recyclable into a cleaner chip. This groundbreaking technology not only reduces raw material consumption but also cuts carbon emissions by over 30%, showcasing Emerald’s dedication to advancing sustainability in the industry.

Beyond Products: A Holistic Approach

Emerald Carpets’ commitment to sustainability extends beyond their products. The company actively participates in reducing landfill use by recycling materials such as cardboard, plastics, bottles, cans, paper, and other waste within their facilities. This holistic approach to environmental responsibility has become a cornerstone of their unique corporate culture.

Logistics: Reducing Carbon Footprint

Recognizing the impact of logistics on the environment, Emerald Carpets has implemented improved planning and shipment consolidation. Their efforts have resulted in a significant reduction of an estimated 500,000 gallons of unnecessary diesel fuel consumption and transportation emissions over the last year—a number expected to rise as the dedicated fleet service expands.

A Promise for the Future

Emerald Carpets takes pride in their sustainability initiatives and remains committed to continuous innovation. From investing in cutting-edge technology to refining processes, they aim to deliver value to customers in the most sustainable manner possible, with the least impact on the environment.
In a world where environmental responsibility is paramount, Emerald Carpets stands as a shining example of how businesses can lead the way in sustainable practices, proving that success and sustainability can go hand in hand.
