Flooring is a main contributor to a building’s embodied carbon. Accordingly, future focus is best placed on specifying sustainable flooring solutions as a strategy to help decarbonise the built environment. However, examining how flooring materials affect human health and the environment is a challenging process. A growing number of resources and tools for green products are available to aid project teams in making thoughtful evaluations and selections.

Sustainable Floorcoverings: Evaluating and Selecting Products for a Greener Future examines what “sustainable” means in the context of flooring and provides some useful guidance on evaluating and selecting sustainable flooring products. First, we consider what makes flooring “sustainable” – from specific product characteristics to how products are sourced, manufactured and disposed of. We then consider a range of tools and resources that are designed to help designers and specifiers make informed product choices, including sustainable building rating schemes, ecolabels, Environmental Product Declarations and more. Finally, we look at flooring through a circular economy framework.

Tarkett is committed to a sustainable, circular economy that creates value for everyone, closing the loop on waste, preserving natural resources and reducing the impact on climate change to give you peace of mind on your product choice. The company strives to make high quality, sustainable flooring to help you create healthier and people-friendly spaces.
