DESSO is a leading manufacturer of high quality carpet tiles and broadloom
carpets and has been in operation for 80 years. It has two factories in Europe,
with its headquarters in Waalwijk, The Netherlands. DESSO has built an
enviable reputation as a reliable partner producing quality flooring for a range
of applications. Its products can be found in offices and public buildings,
schools and universities, retail outlets, hospitals, as well as domestic interiors.
Clients include Allianz, Canon, EDF, HSBC, Porsche, Procter & Gamble, SNCF
and many more.
As part of its ongoing corporate philosophy of safeguarding the environment,
DESSO has signed a partnership agreement with the Environmental Protection
Encouragement Agency (EPEA). DESSO is the first carpet manufacturer in the
Europe/Middle East/Africa (EMEA) to adopt the EPEA's Cradle to Cradle design.
Marking a radical and ambitious decision, the company plans for all DESSO
carpets to be Cradle to Cradle certified by 2020.
Cradle to Cradle takes its inspiration from nature's changing seasons, creating
continuous cycles of both biological and technical 'nutrients'. It envisages
production design that creates totally waste-free products which are either
biodegradable or are recycled in their entirety to provide the raw materials for
new goods. They will have been produced using manufacturing processes
which rely on sun-derived energy, and which seek to conserve water, and to
embrace social responsibility.
Customers can be sure that such products are made from environmentally safe
and healthy materials and are designed so that at their end of their useful
lives, they can be biologically or technically recycled.
