Desso, one of the world’s leading carpet manufacturers and ECONYL® customers, is reaching fascinating new heights with its recent Cradle to Cradle® Gold level certification for its new ‘Gold Collection.’
The industry’s first Gold certification for carpet tile comes after a seven year journey to transition to a more circular economy. The entire collection is made from ECONYL 100% regenerated fibers and contains an average of 80% recyclable materials. Contributing to LEED v4 points, the Gold Collection comes standard with an EcoBase™ backing that contains upcycled re-engineered calcium carbonate from local drinking water companies.
Desso remains committed to transitioning to the circular economy business model. In addition to the newest collection, 93% of Desso’s commercial carpet tile range is either Bronze or Silver Cradle to Cradle certified, depending on its backing type.
Congratulations to our valued partner!
