Domotex Featuring Sustainability Focus for Second Year
Hannover, DE, September 14, 2023-Domotex's upcoming event, which takes place from January 11 to 14, 2024, will once again focus on sustainability, circular economy and environmental protection in the carpet and flooring industry.
Presentations and innovative products, current research projects, a haptic material show as well as an inspiring conference program-that's what visitors can expect at The Green Collection in hall 23.
The highlight of the special display will be The Green Collection Award ceremony. An international jury of experts will review the submitted exhibits and make a pre-selection, which will be exhibited on The Green Collection area throughout the entire show. This year’s jury will be chaired by Dr. phil. Jacqueline Lemm, director of TFI Aachen. Other members of the jury are Kemp Harr, publisher of Floor Focus and FloorDaily, and Reto Aschwanden, managing director of the non-profit organization Label STEP.
The four award categories all focus on sustainability, but each category addresses different aspects of sustainable products or production processes.
* Eco-friendly Products: Focuses on organically and ethically produced materials, as well as recycled and upcycled raw materials.
* Healthy Products: Focuses on the production of carpets and floor coverings with low-emission products.
* Sustainable Production: This category covers alternative, energy-saving and other sustainable production processes of the flooring industry and the corresponding products.
* Social Responsibility: Reflects the active commitment against child and forced labor, and intends to certify manufacturers who produce in an exemplary manner without exploiting their employees.
Manufacturers can register for The Green Collection Award until November 10, 2023. Even companies that are not actively participating as exhibitors at Domotex can submit their products for the award.
