Tarkett gathered an esteemed panel of experts from both sides of the Atlantic to discuss the role of sustainability in commercial office design as part of Workplace Week International 2020.

There have been many changes for the workplace in 2020. To understand how these behavioural trends might impact on office design specification, Tarkett has been running an ongoing research project - Rethinking Workplace

The most recent reports (download below) - carried out during the Covid-19 outbreak - suggest that the health crisis could in fact be a catalyst for change. As the pandemic continues to unfold, the research reveals that employees have a renewed sense of purpose and that environmental policy is seen as a key issue for them.

In this panel debate, we look at what is driving this mindset with experts from across the built environment. Here they explore key themes including how businesses keep sustainability front and centre, and whether collaboration and acceptance are the keys to success in the circular economy.
