Tarkett Responsibility Report Shows Progress
Tarkett’s ‘2022 Corporate Social & Environmental Responsibility (CSR) Report’ Scope 1 & 2 greenhouse gas emissions from manufacturing operations were reduced by 41 per cent versus 2019, notably through the increased purchase of renewable electricity. Scope 3 emissions also decreased by 13 per cent versus 2019, linked to the evolution of its product mix, the actions taken to decarbonize its products, and the progress in the share of recycled materials which now reach 17 per cent (versus 15 per cent in 2021). In 2022, 43 per cent of the company’s total energy consumption came from renewable energies. ‘ReStart,’ its take-back and recycling program, has also made significant progress by transforming end-of-use flooring and recycled materials into new floors. This helps reduce waste and carbon footprint, diminishing the need for virgin raw materials while avoiding landfill and incineration. In the last 12 years, the company has collected the equivalent of 11 Eiffel Towers (115,000 tons) of flooring through Restart into its eight recycling centres. The program is now deployed in 26 countries, including Brazil, India, and several across North America and Europe. Committed to diversity and inclusion, the share of women in management positions reached 27 per cent in 2022, progressing towards the company’s 2025 target of 30 per cent.
