We are contributing to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
In 2015, the United Nations adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development along with a set of 17 Sustainable Development’ Goals. It’s a blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all, by spurring local and global ecological, social, and humanitarian changes. Through its strong ambition, Tarkett contributes to 8 different Sustainable Development Goals.
We are sharing time and talent to support communities
Our corporate volunteering program, Tarkett Cares, mobilizes teams worldwide to share their time and talents with local communities. Employees are encouraged to spend up to 2 days a year during their working time supporting local communities. Tarkett Cares also includes financial and product donations.
We are sharing knowledge and drive cooperation
We’re actively contributing to an active circular dialog inside the built environment through participation in a range of cross-industry initiatives.
