    NCSH's network continues to expand, now with more sustainable flooring!

    This week we are delighted to welcome Tarkett as the newest addition to NCSH. Tarkett is a worldwide leader in innovative flooring and sport surface solutions, and has been producing floors in Sweden since 1886. They describe themselves further like this:

    We offer a wide range of products including vinyl, linoleum, rubber, carpet, wood, laminate, artificial turf and athletic tracks. The Group serves customers in more than 100 countries across the globe. Tarkett has 12,000 employees and 34 industrial sites, and sells 1.3 million square metres of flooring every day, for hospitals, schools, housing, hotels, offices, stores, and sports fields.

    Committed to changing the game with circular economy and to reducing its carbon footprint, the Group has implemented an eco-innovation strategy based on Cradle to Cradle® principles, fully aligned with its Tarkett Human-Conscious Design® approach.

    In 1962, Tarkett launched its first homogenous vinyl floor on rolls, produced in the factory in Ronneby, Sweden. Since then, millions of square metres have been used in hospitals all over the world. The iQ collections from Ronneby were developed to meet the high demands of hygiene and durability in public spaces, such as hospitals and schools. They are appreciated for the low cost of ownership and easy maintenance with low use of electricity and chemicals.

    Tarkett is actively collecting and recycling its homogenous vinyl floors from all over Europe and collected 800 tons only in the Nordics last year. For every square metre of flooring recycled, the GHG-emissions are reduced with more than 10 kg.

    In 2020, Tarkett introduced bio-attributed vinyl for a selection of the homogenous vinyl floors, where the normal fossil feedstock is replaced by bio-naphtha and a bio-based plasticizer giving a substantial decrease in GHG emissions A1-A3.
