We strive to create healthy, comfortable and enjoyable indoor environments that ensure everyone's well-being during product use and maintenance.
We are leading product innovation by creating specifications far exceeding the strictest indoor air quality standards in the world, pioneering non-phthalate alternatives, and conceiving easy cleaning and maintenance systems.
Tarkett has become the industry reference for dramatically reducing Total Volatile Organic Compounds (TVOC) emissions to levels between ten to one hundred times lower than the strictest standards in the world for indoor air quality.
Tarkett launched in 2014 the deployment of phthalate-free technology across its vinyl residential and professional flooring product ranges in Europe, while pursuing the rolling-out within all remaining sites in North America.
92% of our products have low VOC emissions (TVOC below 100µg/m3)
48% of our products have non-quantifiable VOC emissions (TVOC below 10µg/m3)
39% of our vinyl products are phthalate-free (except recycled content)
2020 Objective: 100% of our products are phthalate-free and low TVOC
