Operations

Doing the right thing means operating responsibly across our stores, distribution centers, offices and other facilities. We reduce our impacts by saving energy, shrinking our carbon footprint and reducing waste. But it doesn’t stop there. As a retailer, we may not manufacture the products we sell. It takes people, energy and a complex supply chain to make them and get them into our customers’ hands. So we work with our suppliers and partners across the globe to ensure they, too, operate responsibly and help drive more sustainable outcomes.

For further details on the highlights below, please see our Supplemental ESG Data Download.

Owned Operations


Floor & Decor has invested in the systems and internal capabilities to efficiently manage our locations, positioning us for future commitments and achievement in the area of sustainability. This includes accomplishments in the areas of energy data capture, lighting, HVAC and building controls that are highlighted below:

  • Data: Implemented a portfolio-wide energy information system in 2017 that captures energy- and water-usage data for all stores. This allows Floor & Decor to track usage monthly and flag any facilities that are substantial outliers for investigation and correction.
  • Lighting: >95% of stores and distribution centers use LED lighting, which is up to 50% more efficient than typical fluorescent lighting systems.
  • HVACs: >75% of stores are equipped with high-efficiency HVAC units, delivering cooling and heating at efficiency levels 20% better than required by local building codes.
  • Building Controls: 99% of our stores are controlled by an Energy Management System (EMS) to ensure that lighting and HVAC schedules can be managed centrally and operate only when necessary.

Partnering in Our Supply Chain


Responsible Sourcing and Vendor Management

As a retailer, Floor & Decor doesn't manufacture products. However, we share in the responsibility for any products we sell. Therefore Floor & Decor is committed to conducting all its business transactions to the highest ethical and responsible standards and in accordance with all applicable laws. We also expect all vendors who provide goods and services to Floor & Decor to be committed to these same high standards.

Floor & Decor's Vendor Code of Conduct and Supplier Social Accountability Compliance Program set forth the basic requirements that all vendors must comply with in order to do business with Floor & Decor. If Floor & Decor believes that any vendor has violated the Vendor Code of Conduct, Floor & Decor has the right to terminate its business relationship. Additionally, Floor & Decor maintains a zero-tolerance policy for certain violations, which will result in the stoppage of purchase orders and shipments. In such instances, additional business requires an audited, validated, corrective action plan as well as executive review and approval.

Responsible Trade and Logistics


Freight Transportation

Floor & Decor’s Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) strategy includes our commitment to being a responsible SmartWay Transport Partner. Freight transportation is a large source of air pollution contributing to smog, poor air quality, and greenhouse gas emissions. Improving efficiencies in Floor & Decor’s transportation system through the use of specialized, lightweight equipment allows us to transport more weight per shipment. Plus, our use of intermodal transportation has taken trucks off the road, helping to reduce transportation-related emissions, decrease our carbon footprint and improve air quality for future generations.


Custom Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (CTPAT)

Through this voluntary program, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) works with the trade community to strengthen international supply chains and improve United States border security

The executive leadership and management at Floor & Decor is committed to upholding the security requirements of the CTPAT program. As a program partner, we have regular oversight to ensure that our supply chain remains secure.


California Transparency in Supply Chains Act Disclosure
