Tandus Centiva utilizes Cradle to Cradle® principles to strategically design and manufacture its products. The Cradle to Cradle Certified Products Program™ is a multi attribute certification standard for products in a variety of industries administered by the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute (C2CPII). It includes a chemical assessment as part of the Material Health Category. In addition to Material Health, products are evaluated and certified based on meeting criteria for Material Reutilization, Renewable Energy and Carbon Management, Water Stewardship and Social Fairness. The certification requires optimization and continuous improvement as a condition of renewal.
ethos® Modular with Omnicoat Technology™ is a backing option for Tandus Centiva modular soft surface product platforms. It was developed in 2010 from recycled PVB, which is an abundantly available waste film from postconsumer windshields and safety glass. As a Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Silver v3.1 product, ethos modular will now contribute to LEED v4 MR credit 4 options 1and 2 for material disclosure and optimization.
As a leader in innovative and sustainable flooring solutions, Tandus Centiva is honored to be the first American modular carpet manufacturer to be certified at the Silver level to version 3 of the C2C standard. Focusing on sustainability through innovation, differentiation and circular closed loop design, Tarkett now has Cradle to Cradle certifications for its linoleum, wood, rubber, soft surface and artificial turf solutions.
