Organised every two years for the past 30 years, alternating with the Innovation Prize, the FEDIL Environment Prize aims to reward companies whose technical and financial efforts aim to reconcile productivity and the preservation of natural resources.

Three prize categories have been established for this 2021 Edition:

  • Clean technologies, with innovative processes that reduce the impact of companies’ activities on the environment
  • Green products, which are products that take into account environmental protection at different stages of their life cycle
  • Environmental management, i.e. innovative actions to improve environmental management

Four main criteria are used to award the prize:

  • Innovative character
  • Ecological relevance
  • Sustainable development
  • Practical application

The award ceremony will take place on 8 December at the Chamber of Commerce.

  • Tarkett GDL, in the “Product” category, for its “iD Revolution” range of floor coverings composed of 83% recycled materials, bio-materials and minerals.
