Tarkett is an international company specializing in carpets, carpet tiles, and artificial grass with clients in more than 100 countries. Tarkett products are used in professional offices, educational and healthcare facilities, governmental institutions, homes, hotels, cruise ships, and in airports.

These days, most people spend approximately 90% of their time indoors. This inspired a new corporate vision that tackled the question of ‘how can a floor make a positive contribution to our health and well-being?’.

Our mission is to ensure that we continue to develop unique products that create a noticeably better indoor climate where the optimal health and well-being of each individual remains the focus. The implementation of this mission is lead through our innovation programme which is based on the three pillars of Creativity, Functionality, and Cradle to Cradle®.

Cradle to Cradle®

Tarkett is the first carpet manufacturer working within the EMEA region to apply the Cradle to Cradle® principles in the working methods of their organization. They have achieved this through a collaboration agreement with the EPEA (Environmental Protection Encouragement Agency) based in Hamburg, marking Tarketts somewhat radical decision to produce carpets and artificial grass in a more than just regular sustainable manner. According to the Cradle to Cradle® principle products are produced from positively defined components that are biologically or technically biodegradable, ensuring that they can be reused within the biological or technical cycle as raw materials for new products.
