Maintenance, Lifecycle and Sustainability

Tarkett are a worldwide leader in flooring solutions; including Healthcare where we are one of the largest suppliers in the world.
Our investment into the product performance and Sustainability speaks for themselves.
With a clear focus on Sustainability and pioneers of the Circular Economy we (Tarkett) aim to bring an understanding and merger of 2 key areas in the NHS and material selection: impact on the environment, Lifecyle and Maintenance.
Sustainability and the Circular Economy have almost become daily phrases in everyday life - certainly within the built environment and refurbishment schemes – we aim to provide knowledge and case study examples of how this can be brought to life.
Lifecyle and Maintenance are imperative when selecting products and has a direct correlation with Sustainability. Afterall, if we don’t need to replace or can extend a product or service with minimum effort that our impact on the environment and of course budgets are considered.
Even when we do need to replace the initial investment of the original product has a significant impact; again we will draw on our experiences to provide successful insights into this area.
Learning outcomes:
Understand correlation between Lifecycle and Sustainability
Understanding of the importance of Eco-Design and Circular solutions
Understanding of Lifecyle analysis

Simplify ERIC Reporting by the Power of Automation to Help Achieve Your Net Zero Targets and Reduce Maintenance Costs

Manual reporting processes can tie up hundreds of hours of resource; teams must not only collect data from different sources and spreadsheets but also check accuracy, reformat data points for consistency, then create combined reports. This not only uses up precious resource hours but increases the risk of human error creeping in at every stage.
With all the information you need to report on facilities, energy, waste and space management integrated into a single source of truth, you can provide over 80% of the data points required for your ERIC submission in just a few clicks.
