Home Press Release Tarkett participates in PVC panel

Solon, Ohio—Tarkett, a global leader in innovative and sustainable solutions for flooring and sports surfaces, participated in the C2C Products Symposium and Innovation Celebration at The Conrad in New York City Nov. 12-13.

On the first day of the symposium, Tarkett participated in a presentation called Closing the Loop: An examination of the positive impact of using C2C principles in business. The next day, Tarkett participated in a much-anticipated panel discussion on PVC, an affordable and commonly used building material currently on the banned list in the Cradle to Cradle certification.

The panel discussed how PVC has evolved, opened a debate on the material’s future in built environment applications, and considered the improvements being made to address long standing environmental and human concerns.

“Tarkett’s approach to PVC flooring applies C2C principles and aligns with the concept of closed-loop circular design,” said Anne-Christine Ayed, executive vice president of research, innovation and environment at Tarkett. “Because we define good materials as safe for people and the environment, we work with our supply chain to create products with PVC resin made responsibly by suppliers who follow manufacturing best practices.”
