Tarkett, a manufacturer of innovative and sustainable flooring solutions, has partnered with Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute (C2CPII) to bring the Cradle to Cradle Certified: Powering the Shift to Healthy, Climate Positive, and Equitable Products presentation to the architecture and design community on April 26 at 12 and 3 p.m. EST.

The presentation will be hosted by C2CPII’s Ren Decherney, NCID, LEED AP ID+C, IIDA and will cover the newly launched Cradle to Cradle Certified Version 4.0. Topics covered include the building industry's impact on the climate, environment, and people. Attendees will be introduced to the new Cradle to Cradle Certified standard, which includes material health, climate, water and soil stewardship, circularity, and social fairness. Participants will learn how they can use the new standard to optimize product specification on any project.

The CEU presentation will take place online on April 26 at 12 and 3 p.m. EDT and is free to attend. Interested industry professionals can register through Eventbrite here. The course is accredited by AIA, IDCEC and GBCI. 

Tarkett’s sponsorship of the C2CPII education series is in alignment with the company’s leadership in product lifecycle transparency. In 2022, Tarkett had 19 Cradle to Cradle (C2C) certifications globally, covering a wide range of product categories, including carpet, linoleum, rubber, wood and artificial turf. 

“We see sustainability as a collaborative effort, and net positive impacts, closed loops and a circular economy all depend on the materials you start with. Investing in industry-wide education offerings focused on holistic sustainability is just one way we can help support engaged discussion and continuous learning for ourselves and the A&D community as a whole,” said Roxane Spears, vice president of sustainability, Tarkett North America.
