Believing that every carpet is an opportunity to protect the environment and maintain personal wellbeing, we constantly challenge industry standards when combining aesthetics, quality and sustainability into beautiful carpet design. There are plenty of good stories to tell about your next carpet; about the materials we use, the processes our production is based on and the other very diverse activities and initiatives that compose our entire business.
For instance, all of our carpets are Cradle to Cradle CertifiedTM while also holding the Indoor Air Comfort Gold certificate. Besides that, our EcoVadis Gold Score puts us in the top 1% when it comes to social responsibility. And there’s so much more!
We see more and more examples of customers highlighting in articles, reports and their communication in general that they have specified sustainable interior. Simply because it’s a good story that supports the worldwide agenda about the increasing need for sustainable solutions.
Why are our stories important to you? Besides specifying one of the greenest carpets in the world for your next project, you get so many reasons why you should choose a product from Ege Carpets in the first place. Read on to follow the green thread that runs through everything we do and learn how we make beautiful carpets for a sustainable future.
While it is our business to create beautiful carpets, we consider it our ethical duty to help inspire progress in our society. By constantly challenging the conventions of production, we impatiently demand more of today to ensure that we create a better tomorrow – one carpet at a time.
As a carpet manufacturer, it is impossible not to have a production footprint, but for years, we have strived to reduce the negative and increase the positive factors. And this approach continues into the future with our ambitious 2030 sustainability strategy, focusing on four key areas where we aim to make an even more positive difference:
Some of our achievements and future goals within each area are explained in further details below.
Our sustainable efforts have led to many fine acknowledgements and we are proud to be leading the way and help to inspire others to move in a more sustainable direction. We have taken first place twice in a CSR rating created by Danish top management publication: Økonomisk Ugebrev Ledelse. Likewise, KPMG, Scandic Hotels and Danish Design Award have awarded our green achievements. We have also won the EU’s Management Award for Sustainable Development. Winning the Circularity City Product Award by EIT Climate KIC, resulted in us garnering international speaking time at C40 Worlds Mayors Summit 2019.
