We seek to operate responsibly by conserving energy, reducing waste and recycling, and managing our carbon footprint. At the same time, we work with our global suppliers and partners to ensure they, too, operate responsibly and help drive more sustainable outcomes.

For further details on the highlights below, please see our Comprehensive Sustainability Disclosure.

Owned Operations

Floor & Decor has invested in systems and internal capabilities that reduce energy consumption across our portfolio. Building management systems include automated lighting controls that reduce energy usage on the sales floor during non-business hours, limit back-of-house warehouse and office lighting to areas of activity and minimize exterior lighting during off hours.

Our investments in energy management resulted in accomplishments in the areas of energy-data capture, lighting, HVAC and building controls, including:

  • 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: >97% 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 sustainability 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)

The executive leadership and management at Floor & Decor are committed to upholding the security requirements of the CTPAT program. Through this voluntary program, Customs and Border Protection works with the trade community to strengthen international supply chains and improve United States border security. As a program partner, we have regular oversight to ensure that our supply chain remains secure.
