A Green New Chapter
Tarkett is a sponsor of the 2021 Metropolis Perspective: Sustainability Symposium
With ten years of accomplishments, Tarkett is setting even higher goals. Targeting raw materials and carbon emissions, the flooring brand hopes to use 30 percent recycled materials by 2030 compared with only 10 percent in 2018. Nine recycling centers they’ve integrated into their production sites around the world will help with converting old flooring into recycled raw materials.
Meanwhile additional carbon cuts are expected to bring the company’s carbon footprint down by 30 percent. In addition to minimizing their own carbon footprint, Tarkett is making flooring products that help architects and designers reduce the embodied carbon footprint of their projects. Partnering with Carbonfund, they’ve created the industry’s largest portfolio of third-party verified carbon neutral flooring solutions, which includes all the designs in their Powerbond, ethos® Modular with Omnicoat Technology®, rubber tile, rubber sports flooring, homogeneous sheet and tile, heterogeneous sheet and tile, and LVT collections manufactured in the United States.
