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.
Progress (2015 figures)
92% of our products have low TVOC* emissions (TVOC below 100µg/m3, testing bases on regional and product requirements)
54% of our vinyl products are phthalate-free (except recycled content for some products)
2020 Objective: 100% of our products are phthalate-free and have low TVOC emissions
*TVOC: Total Volatile Organic Compounds
Tarkett has become the industry reference for dramatically reducing Total Volatile Organic Compounds (TVOC) emissions to levels between 10 to 100 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. As of January 1st, 2015, all of the production sites in Europe use the non-phthalate technology (except Gamrat in Poland).
