Design

THE NATURAL CHOICE FOR PEOPLE AND THE ENVIRONMENT Tarkett's Lino is made from the same original recipe since 1898 and yet it continues to be a modern, versatile and sustainable flooring, made of natural and renewable ingredients such as linseed oil, pine rosin, wood and cork flour and jute. Our Cradle to Cradle® approach ensures we design our products to positively contribute to the environment and people’s well-being at each step of the product’s life, while supporting the transition to a circular economy business model. We put in place a number of initiatives to achieve our ambition of a zero-emission site at Narni. To ensure a more responsible use of natural resources, we’ve installed systems such as heat exchangers that recover and reuse heat from ovens, a biomass boiler that produces hot water to heat the ovens and a closed-loop water system. These have helped us establish a more sustainable manufacturing approach and minimise our impact on the environment.

GOOD MATERIALS In making linoleum, we use materials that contribute positively to people’s health and the environment. Closed-loop design starts here, so that good materials become future resources that can be reused or returned to nature as biodegradable ingredients ■ 94% natural raw materials - linseed oil, pine rosin, wood and cork flour, calcium carbonate and jute. ■ 78% from abundant renewable resources - including local suppliers. We support local linen producers to reduce our carbon footprint. ■ 100% of ingredients have been positively assessed according to Cradle to Cradle® framework for health and environment. As such Tarkett's Lino exceeds European REACH regulation requirements. ■ 100% recyclable - Tarkett's Lino offcuts can be fully reused as raw materials for future products or packaging through our ReStart® Programme.

RESOURCE STEWARDSHIP Driven by the standards of our World Class Manufacturing programme for continuous improvement of processes, we reduce our operational impact and preserve the environment. ■ Pioneering the new ISO14067 product carbon footprint certification, in addition to existing ISO9001 quality, ISO14001 environment, ISO50001 energy and OHSAS 18001 safety management certification. ■ 100% recycled /recirculated industrial water (closed-loop). ■ Rainwater collection and re-use. ■ Green House Gases (GHG) emission reduction by 44% vs 2010 (the equivalent of a 23.541 km car journey). ■ Producing electricity, heating and cooling power from a single device (a gas engine) to increase energy efficiency in a profitable and sustainable way (30% self-produced energy). ■ Increasing renewable energy use through photovoltaic panels, a biomass boiler and a geothermal system (internal production) and the purchase of 100% renewable electricity.

PEOPLE-FRIENDLY SPACES We create flooring designed for improved indoor air quality that respects people’s health and well-being. Tarkett's Lino enhances people’s everyday sensorial experience, through colours and patterns, as well as through acoustic or underfoot comfort. All of which offer key advantages for schools, universities and hospitals. ■ Research on how to best use colour and design to enhance aesthetics and ergonomy for stimulating, productive or restful environments. ■ Innovation for a better sound and thermal insulation, and for improved underfoot comfort. ■ Good air quality: VOC emissions (<100μg/m3) 10 times lower than the most stringent industry requirements. ■ Naturally phthalate-free. ■ Natural bactericidal qualities. ■ Hardwearing and resistant, Tarkett's Lino xf²™ surface treatment simplifies cleaning and maintenance, which means 3.7% less water usage, 8.9% less electricity and 25% less detergent*. *Compared to linoleum without xf²

REUSE We recycle at every step of the linoleum life cycle to upcycle waste and avoid landfill. We believe products should no longer have an end of life, but an end of use to then become resources for new products. Join us in the transformation towards a circular economy. ■ Tarkett's Lino is 100% recyclable, from linoleum paste and surplus jute to powders. ■ By recycling 1,600 tons of linoleum annually, we reduce our need for virgin raw materials. ■ Our dedicated ReStart® recycling programme helps customers worldwide to collect and recycle installation offcuts. ■ Our objective is 0% production waste by 2020 at Narni.
