In October last year, we achieved an incredible milestone: we launched our first cradle to gate carbon negative carpet tiles in the Americas. I’m proud to share that from today our customers across the Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia (EAAA) region can specify our first carbon negative carpet tile collection, Embodied Beauty™, and our first carbon negative microtuft product, Flash Line.
Climate Take Back
Climate change is the biggest long-term issue for our planet and 2021 is a pivotal year in our response. Despite stories circulating around about temporary reductions in carbon emissions in 2020, the challenges posed by global warming remain and are more pressing as than ever before.
On the eve of the UNFCCC Paris Agreement anniversary we are once again proud to partner with CISL in knowledge sharing to support the development of climate neutral business planning framework
Carbon itself is neither good nor bad. It is a question of how we understand it and how we use it. The decisions we make now can, and will, change the legacy we leave for future generations.
A green recovery is one where governments and businesses put the environment at the centre of plans to rebuild the economy. The opportunity – an economic recovery that factors in cutting carbon emissions, protecting biodiversity, and building resilience by working with nature, rather than against it.
To see a positive shift in climate change requires a spirit of innovation, inventiveness, and a sense of responsibility. “Turning old into new” is the answer from the Czech architectural office Labor 13, which has built a house from 100% recycled materials.
The Eiffel Tower, Louvre Museum and the Arc de Triomphe shape the Paris skyline. Lesser known are the chic green spaces that form part of the “Objective: 100 hectares” initiative. Launched in 2016 it aimed is to plant greenery on 100 hectares of building space by the end of 2020.
The pavilion is made mainly from cork and custom-made K-Briq modules, which consist of 90% recycled construction and demolition waste, and are manufactured without a burning process.
The small, tranquil village of Kamikatsu is located on the island of Shikoku in Japan, and is aiming to become the world’s first waste-free community by the end of 2020.
One of the main reasons for global warming and progressive climate change is the increased volumes of carbon in the atmosphere. ecoLogicStudio, based in London, working alongside the EU initiative for climate innovations Climate-KIC, has developed a building sheath based on algae.
