HMTX Expands Carbon-Neutral Portfolio Through Offsets
Norwalk, CT, January 23, 2023-HMTX Industries announced that its HMTX commercial and HMTX global divisions have expanded their carbon-neutral product portfolio with the purchase of REDD+ verified carbon offsets.
Under the REDD+ conservation strategy, revenues from the sale of verified emissions reductions are used to finance sustainable development opportunities for local communities while protecting areas from deforestation and preserving biodiversity.
In addition to previously purchased verified offsets for the Teknoflor brand’s bio-based Naturescapes HPD and Natures Tile and Plank HPD flooring, the U.S.-based HMTX commercial has purchased verified carbon offsets for its Aspecta Contours product line. HMTX Global has followed suit for its Aspecta One, Aspecta Five, and Aspecta Contours collections as well as for the Elemental Collection’s Commercial Dryback (2.5 mm), Multilayer Modular (8.0 mm) and Loose Lay flooring.
HMTX’s purchased verified carbon offsets will support the Mai Ndombe REDD+ Project, which protects 300,000 hectares (741,000 acres) of critical bonobo and forest elephant habitat within the Congo Basin, the world’s second-largest intact rainforest and important wetlands on the planet.
