Green again: Domotex will retain its focus on sustainability

Domotex will again focus on sustainability, circular economy and environmental protection in the carpet and flooring industry.

‘In a world where resources are becoming scarcer and the consequences of the climate crisis are starting to hit us more frequently, sustainability must become an integral part of everything we do. That is why we have made the decision to maintain and expand our value-based keynote theme Floored By Nature and the special display The Green Collection,’ says Sonia Wedell-Castellano, Domotex global director.

‘Extraordinary presentations and innovative products, current research projects, a haptic material show as well as an inspiring conference programme – that’s what visitors can expect at The Green Collection in Hall 23. In collaboration with TFI Aachen and the material database raumprobe, The Green Collection is staging the megatrend of sustainability for visitors to experience.’

‘We are looking forward to the continuation of our successful collaboration and will carry on with our well-established approach of providing information on current research and regulatory measures in the field of sustainability. We will also be adding the important aspect of “advanced training”,’ says Jacqueline Lemm, TFI Aachen director and chairwoman of the jury of this year’s Green Collection Award.

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. The four award categories all focus on sustainability, each one addressing a different aspect 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 floorcoverings with low-emission products; Sustainable Production covers alternative, energy-saving and other sustainable production processes of the flooring industry and the corresponding products and Social Responsibility reflects the active commitment against child and forced labour, and intends to certify manufacturers who produce in an exemplary manner without exploiting their employees.

The show takes place in Hannover from 11-14 January.
