“Our sustainability performance over the past year contributes actively to Tarkett’s ambition: to be the easiest, the most innovative and the most sustainable flooring and sports surfaces company to work for and to work with,” said Fabrice Barthélemy, CEO of Tarkett. “The pursuit of ‘always more’ is threatening our planet. We need to find a way to deliver more with less. For us, this means less waste, lower emissions and greater well-being. Doing more with less is our commitment, our mission and our mindset.”

Responsible material sourcing, renewable energy, closed-loop water systems, our recycling program—these are just a few of the initiatives that have us on track to meet our global sustainability goals set for 2030,” said Roxane Spears, vice president of sustainability for Tarkett North America. “But there is always more work to be done, which is why we aren’t stopping there.
