Tarkett is committed to reducing its carbon footprint throughout its value chain. 10% of our carbon footprint comes from our own operations. We reduce it by improving the energy efficiency of our factories and by increasing renewable or non-fossil fuels.

Inside Tarkett’s carbon footprint
How we’re taking action
Our climate ambitions support the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement and the UN’s 2030 targets. We are taking steps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions across our whole value chain – this includes emissions from our suppliers and customers.
Shifting to a circular economy is key to achieving our climate goals. We are seeking to build more and more robust collaborations with all partners who share our ambition to make conscious choices for people and planet. This is the essence of Tarkett Human-Conscious Design®.Arnaud Marquis – Chief Sustainability & Innovation Officer
Reducing our carbon footprint throughout our value chain
Our conscious approach
Although our products are designed to last, they must be replaced eventually.
For over 10 years, our teams have been using Cradle to Cradle® methodology to ensure that our products can be recycled at the end of their use – reducing ultimately our carbon footprint.

For many, waste is a source of energy and greenhouse gas emissions. For Tarkett, waste is a precious raw material with very low carbon footprint, because where others see waste, we see opportunities. We are shifting to a circular economy.
