Crafting Healthier Futures
Taking sustainable flooring a step further, together
We believe true sustainable impact comes from collaboration. That’s why we’re happy to take the first steps through Cradle to Cradle principles and radical transparency to empower our partners to take the next steps. Yes, we design allergy-friendly flooring that promotes good indoor air quality, use healthy materials that enable sustainable flooring, but together, we can create healthier futures.
The Proof Behind the Words
All of our sustainability initiatives are founded on our commitment to create healthier environments indoors and out.
A Clear FoundationWe have been raising indoor air quality standards for more than a decade and deliver low-VOC content in 99% of our floors.
To show our commitment to healthier futures, we signed the UN Global Compact in 2010 and reached its highest level of maturity, which only 11% of corporations achieve, by 2012.
A Future of ImpactsWe design all our products with the end of life in mind, like developing glue-free solutions that promote easy recycling.
We are working to reduce old floors going to landfills by exploring new ways to separate post-consumer linoleum flooring from the glue to make sure it can be turned back into a new product.
As the first company to eliminate orthophthalates from all our products, we leverage 100% phthalate-free technology in all our vinyl production in North America.
Setting New Transparency Standards
We subject our raw materials to relentless scientific scrutiny and show you exactly what goes into our products because closed loops and better ends of life depend on where you start. With Tarkett floors, our partners can walk forward with confidence.
