At Inzide Commercial, everything we do has the planet in mind.

From the brands we supply to the New Zealand market, to processes we follow, we are committed to maintaining and improving our standards.  We believe strongly in the circular economy and practice this ethos through Interface’s ReEntry recycling scheme in Australia, among other great initiatives such as CarboNZero.

Currently we are seeing landfill transfer happening in the New Zealand flooring industry.  This endemic use of downcycled, single-use plastic carpet tiles from China and the USA is harming New Zealand, an island nation, and can only be stopped with your help.

In 22 years of supplying design led flooring solutions we have;

Recycled 91 tonnes of carpet tile
Facilitated the re-use of 255 tonnes of carpet tile
Offset 4318 tonnes of carbon
Mitigated 295.14 tonnes of carbon
Saved 105,000 litres of fuel by using a Prius car fleet
It all starts with local companies investing in New Zealand’s economy and biosphere to make a real difference to our world.
