TARKETT Linoleum Range Is Awarded The Cradle To Cradle® Silver Certificate

Tarkett, the worldwide leader in innovative flooring and sports surface solutions, has been awarded the Cradle to Cradle® Silver Certificate for its Linoleum product range. Made from materials such as linseed oil, pine resin, jute, wood and cork flour, linoleum is the ultimate natural and renewable product.

The Cradle to Cradle® certification is based on 5 criteria: material content; material reutilisation and design for the environment; use of renewable energy and water stewardship during the production process; and social responsibility principles. The certification process looks at the chemical components of ingredients that go into a product, assessing their effects on human and environmental health, as well as their ability to be recycled or composted.

The Silver Certificate means that all the ingredients used for Tarkett Linoleum are identifed and positively assessed. For the production process, energy and water use were characterised and water stewardship guidelines were signed based on Cradle to Cradle® criteria. As an example, at Tarkett’s linoleum production plant in Narni, Italy, a closed loop water system is used for process cooling and the factory has also committed to increase its use of renewable energies.

Tarkett is committed to the UN Global Compact 10 principles for social responsibility and has published a code of ethics and integrated the Global Compact into procurement contracts.

At the start of 2011, Tarkett signed a partnership with the German scientific institute EPEA (Environmental Protection and Encouragement Agency) to deploy the Cradle to Cradle® concept. This offers a new approach to the business paradigm and to corporate culture. Tarkett is keen to support eco-innovation without conflicting with economic growth and environmental commitments. Rather than systematically seeking to consume less, Tarkett undertakes to design products that go into perpetual technical cycles and can even by upcycled.

Tarkett is one of the first companies to promote and adopt this concept, both in it’s approach to new materials and in terms of product certification.
