Tarkett Emissions Lowered by 41%
Tarkett, a sustainable flooring and sports surface solutions company, announced its Scope 1 & 2 GHG emissions from manufacturing operations were reduced by 41% versus 2019, through the increased purchase of electricity coming from renewable energies.
The company’s Scope 3 emissions also decreased by 13% 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% (vs. 15% in 2021).
In 2022, 43% of the company’s total energy consumption came from renewable energies - 13 production sites purchased 100% electricity coming from renewable energies.
"Our sustainability performance over the past year contributes actively to Tarkett's ambition: to be the easiest, the most innovative and the most sustainable flooring and sports surfaces company to work for and to work with. The pursuit of ‘always more’ is threatening our planet. We need to find a way to deliver more with less. For us, this means less waste, lower emissions and greater well-being," said Fabrice Barthélemy, CEO of Tarkett in a statement.
In 2022, Tarkett’s ambitious climate goals to reduce GHG emissions by 2030 were approved by the independent Science Based Target initiative (SBTi).
