In a world where resources are becoming scarcer and the consequences of the climate crisis are a matter of concern, sustainability is increasingly playing an integral role in society. Keeping to its theme of “Floored by Nature”, Domotex 2024 celebrated sustainability, circular economy and environmental protection in the carpet and flooring industry with the Green Collection display and awards.

Under the direction of Dr phil. Jacqueline Lemm, managing director and institute director of TFI Aachen, a high-calibre jury of experts selected the ten most outstanding entries in the four competition categories from 70 global submissions. 

“It was a great opportunity to take part in the assessment of the Green Collection Awards. It’s amazing to witness how many businesses in the sector are already pursuing more environmentally friendly or recyclable solutions,” reveals Dr phil. Lemm.
