Knowledge & Cooperation

We’re contributing to advancing the circular economy within the built environment by collaborating and sharing knowledge through a range of cross-industry initiatives. We continue to learn every day, inspired and challenged by our stakeholders.

We share knowledge and drive cooperation

We are collaborating with the Ministry of Economy of Luxembourg to create an industry standard for sharing circular information on products.

We are involved in the EU Circular Plastics Alliance, promoting voluntary commitments for more recycled plastics, with a target of 10 million tons of recycled plastics are used to make products in Europe by 2025

Our CEO called for industry action on the circular economy as part of the green recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic at the FrenchFounders “Act to Impact” summit 

Tarkett supports our research to shine a light on the impact of workplace culture and business practices on health and sustainability.
