The Green Collection Award at Domotex

Domotex, the trade fair for carpets and floor coverings in Hannover, was celebrating outstanding developments in the field of sustainability. On the first day of the fair, 11 January 2024, ten companies were honoured with the Green Collection Award.

For the second time, the special display The Green Collection focuses on sustainability, the circular economy, and environmental protection in the carpet and flooring industry. The centre of the special display was the award ceremony of the Green Collection Award. The winners were announced on the first day of the fair, 11th January, in a festive setting in front of a large audience.

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 Award. It's amazing to witness how many businesses in the sector are already pursuing more environmentally friendly or recyclable solutions,' reveals Dr. phil. Lemm.

Alongside Dr. phil. Jacqueline Lemm, this year's jury included Joachim Stumpp, Managing Partner of raumprobe | Material Bank, Reto Aschwanden, Managing Director of the non-profit organisation Label STEP, Kemp Harr, publisher of the industry magazine Floor Focus, and Italian architect and interior designer Loredana Marvulli.
