But what exactly does that mean?
Our products, as well as the production process and our factory, are assessed (externally) on 5 major themes:
1 Material Health
assesses whether we select our raw materials taking into account the protection of human health and the environment.
2 Product Circularity
assesses whether products are designed with their next use in mind and are actively recycled.
3 Clean Air & Climate Protection
assesses the impact of our production on air quality, renewable energy use and greenhouse gas emissions.
4 Water & Soil Stewardship
assesses how our production treats water and soil. Clean water and healthy soils are a right for humans and all other organisms.
5 Social Fairness
assesses how we treat all employees within our company.

ExpoCare is a group of C2C certified (Bronze), fully recyclable expo and event carpets with proven quality after more than 10 years on the market. Expostyle, Expoline, Expoluxe and Expocord are known in the market for their durability, dimensional stability and easy handling. Recycling of these products reduces CO2 emissions by 50% compared to standard waste disposal. In addition, Expoline and Expocord are the first ribbed products to be C2C certified.
Commitment to innovation
The organization behind C2C has determined 4 labels; Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum. In 2021, the ExpoCare collection obtained the Bronze label and it is valid until 2024. Each product is re-evaluated after 3 years. Only if there are clear improvements in the production process or in the quality of the product can the certificate be maintained.
Thanks to our own R&D department, we can continue to work on our products and our production processes in order to achieve the Silver label in 2024, so that the ExpoCare collection can once again carry the C2C certificate.
