Inspiration for Sustainable Spaces
Sustainable design is about more than just using the right materials. It's an opportunity to make a difference by creating inspiring environments.
Every space has the power to change lives, transform communities, and make our world a better place.
Helping to Reduce Landfill Waste: Re.Form
Construction and industrial waste is a significant challenge across New Zealand. In an effort to divert material from landfill and as part of our ongoing commitment to the environment and socially responsible flooring, Jacobsen launched Re.Form, a Product Stewardship programme that utilises the principles of the waste hierarchy, putting emphasis on the re-use of flooring before considering recycling, and with disposal or landfill as a last resort.
One of the most natural and sustainable flooring solutions on the market, Tarkett linoleum has been appreciated for its beauty, comfort and durability for over 150 years. Our Style Emme xf²™ collection offers a discretely marbled pattern across a range of sophisticated colours. It is treated with our unique xf²™ surface protection for extreme durability, easy cleaning and cost-effective maintenance.
From Waste to Resource
Sustainable Flooring Waste Management
Given that there are no New Zealand-based recycling schemes that can utilize flooring waste, our Re.Form program provides an easy solution as we facilitate the return of materials in re-useable condition from the flooring contractors who uplift them. If materials aren’t suitable for re-use, we will collect them from the construction site and arrange for them to be sent back to the supplier to be recycled back into the manufacturing process.
