“In 2019, we launched our new strategic plan ‘Change to Win’, positioning circular economy at the heart of our strategy” explained Fabrice Barthélemy, CEO of Tarkett. “At Tarkett, we are convinced we have a role to play in changing the game in our industry with circular economy – a virtuous model to address resource scarcity and the climate emergency. I am particularly proud of the breakthrough we achieved last year by fully closing the loop on the life cycle of commercial carpet tiles in Europe with our partner Aquafil.
Circular economy is a key challenge for us and the entire building industry, notably in the development of eco-designed products and circular services. I am convinced that getting all stakeholders involved will contribute to accelerating the transition to a circular economy. The current crisis is a painful wake-up call on the need for a more inclusive economy, more respectful of natural resources, climate and bio-diversity.”
