Centura Tile (www.Centura.ca), North America's premier distributor of both residential and commercial floor and wall fashions, is proud to be part of flooring designer Tarkett's recent commitment to sustainable design and combating climate change. The announcement comes on the heels of a joint coalition statement by Tarkett and other global companies intended to encourage world leaders to take action at the Paris climate summit, taking place November 30 to December 11, 2015.
"Tarkett is one of Centura Tile's biggest flooring partners," explains Ross Keltie, Centura's Vice President of Sales and Marketing, "and Centura shares their desire for sustainable business."
Part of these efforts is the "Closed Loop Circular Design" model employed by the Tarkett products Centura stocks. This is an extensive eco-innovation strategy that aims to provide benefits to customers’ health and livelihood during all stages including product design, production, use, and recycling. More specifically, the commitment to environmentally friendly design can be seen in Tarkett's FiberFloor and sheet vinyl flooring products, which are stocked by Centura Tile.
"Tarkett's flooring products are known for being able to protect a customer's well-being, and its commitments to sustainable business and transforming the flooring industry in that direction are well known," notes Keltie. "Tarkett flooring can help improve indoor air quality, support healthcare living spaces, make use of high levels of recycled content, and are phthalate free. Tarkett flooring is an environmentally friendly choice."
The coalition statement that Tarkett signed is shared by 78 leaders of global companies operating in more than 150 countries and territories. Together, the participants’ combined annual revenue is approximately $2.1 trillion.
