As a follow-up to Tarkett’s sponsorship of C2CPII, the company is partnering with the Ellen McArthur Foundation and joining the Circular Economy 100 (CE100) USA network in its commitment to sustainability and the Circular Economy model.
Cradle 2 Cradle principles and a circular economy business model are integral to the effectiveness of Tarkett’s closed-loop design process, according to the company.
Building upon the path it began in 2011, Tarkett is expanding its support to meet and network with like-minded companies in North America and fully engage in conversations around the circular economy approach to business.
“As a member of the CE100 program, we are joining numerous corporations worldwide, including The Coca-Cola Co., Dell, Steelcase and more, in an effort to move toward a circular economy,” said Diane Martel, vice president, environmental planning and strategy, Tarkett. “To truly achieve the benefits of this systematic transition takes the efforts of many corporations across multiple industries. In addition to the positive contribution this program has to people and the planet, there is great economic opportunity in moving toward a circular economy. Business is a core part of this and we truly believe there is a lot of opportunity to create a path toward the positive and look forward to continued work with the Ellen MacArthur Foundations and the CE100 program.”
The CE100 program strives to be a reference point for effective circular economy collaboration and, with its alignment with C2CPII, combines circular design with material health. Tarkett’s partnership with the foundation aims to develop the foundation’s further outreach into the built environment.
