Tarkett provide environmental, material disclosures to A&D community

March 15, 2017

tarkett-logoSolon, Ohio—Tarkett has partnered with Sustainable Minds (SM) to provide a simple and easy way for architects and designers to find material and environmental product transparency information on more than 850 Tarkett products across all its North American brands—Tandus Centiva, Johnsonite and Desso—and all in one place: the SM Transparency Catalog.

“Product transparency is increasingly important to our customers who want to understand the environmental and material health impacts of our products, and they need to be able to access that information quickly and easily to make informed decisions,” said Diane Martel, vice president of sustainability, Tarkett. “Transparency, along with the data to support it, is particularly important to project owners who are working to meet rating systems requirements. Our efforts are helping these owners choose healthy products for healthy spaces.”

The SM Transparency Catalog is designed to help architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) professionals easily find products with transparency information that qualify for green building rating systems including: The Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS), LEED v4, Green Globes, the Well Building Standard and the Living Building Challenge.

“People aren’t looking for disclosures—they want high performing products with disclosures,” said Terry Swack, chief executive officer, Sustainable Minds. “Working with Tarkett to organize all of its brands and products into one integrated listing informed the development of new options for manufacturers to reinforce or build greener brand recognition within our catalog.”
