Home Press Release Tarkett joins coalition calling for concrete action on climate change

Solon, Ohio—Tarkett has joined a coalition of global businesses calling for concrete action on climate change, ahead of the United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties 21 (COP211) to be held in Paris Nov. 30-Dec. 11.

This new coalition—comprising of 78 CEOs from global companies operating in more than 150 countries and territories with a combined revenue of $2.13 trillion— believes the private sector has a responsibility to actively engage in global efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The Open Message2, facilitated by the World Economic Forum, extends an offer to national governments to meet and co-design tangible actions as well as set appropriate and effective targets.

“Our whole vision is geared to drawing on innovation and human ingenuity to transform our business towards a collaborative circular economy model, positively impacting people, planet and profits,” said Michel Giannuzzi, CEO of Tarkett. “For this reason, we had no hesitation in supporting this vital climate change initiative, as we believe that a long-term commitment, extending beyond COP 21, is required to tackle these issues.”
