Solon, Ohio— Tarkett released its 2020 Corporate Social & Environmental Responsibility (CSR) report. Fully audited by an independent third-party organization, KPMG, this report showcases the company’s ongoing sustainability performance.

“In the last ten years, we have achieved strong progress in sustainability,” said CEO Fabrice Barthélemy. “In many cases we have exceeded our 2020 objectives, developing circular economy initiatives, reducing our carbon footprint and eco-designing our products with healthy materials. Opening a second chapter in its sustainability strategy, Tarkett is leading the way in its industry. As part of our ‘Change to Win’ strategy, we invest in circular economy, and tackle our carbon footprint across the value chain. By building cohesive partnerships with customers, suppliers and leading players, we amplify our impact in making conscious choices for people and the planet. This approach will allow us to seize new opportunities of sustainable growth, and contribute to a global green recovery for present and future generations.”

Tarkett’s maturity in sustainability was recently recognized by improved extra-financial ratings, both from the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP climate rating: B – management level) and EcoVadis (platinum medal, the highest level of maturity in sustainability a company can reach).

“Following Cradle to Cradle principles has been instrumental in keeping our focus for product development on health and wellness, social fairness and responsible manufacturing,” said Roxane Spears, vice president, sustainability, Tarkett North America. “Following these guidelines has helped us create solutions that are not only Cradle to Cradle certified, but also CERTIFIED asthma & allergy friendly. These certifications provide our customers with transparency and a level of assurance as they use Tarkett products in their spaces. We will continue to grow our portfolio of third-party certified products, making healthier options more accessible across all market segments.”
