Committed for many years to a circular economy, in 2020 Tarkett is creating the first bio-attributed vinyl flooring according to the mass balance principle: the new iQ Natural. Zoom on a designer, functional and eco-responsible flooring.
A world leader in flooring, Tarkett takes its responsibility for its environmental impact seriously, and launches the new iQ Natural. This product is the first bio-attributed vinyl flooring: its raw materials, traditionally of fossil origin, are replaced by biomass according to the principle of mass balance.
Eco-designed by Tarkett, phthalate-free and recyclable at the end of use, this new product offers architects, designers and building owners an environmentally friendly flooring solution. Certified by RSB *, this innovative collection is a flooring solution that reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 50% compared to the average homogeneous vinyl flooring on the market.
In addition to its low environmental impact, the new iQ Natural is available in 35 colors offering subtle tone-on-tone combinations with neutral hues to create trendy interiors inspired by nature.
A collection as aesthetic as it is durable.

The choice of the editorial staff
iQ Natural is a product that is as design as it is responsible. This is why it won a Muuuz International Award 2020 in the category "Layout, materials, coverings / Bio-awarded vinyl flooring".
* RSB, Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials, is an independent environmental organization that validates the bio-assigned status.
