The United Nations (UN) Climate Conference (COP25) organisers chose the latex-free 100 per cent recyclable Rewind event carpet from Belgium-based Beaulieu International Group (BIG) to set an example of the UN focus on sustainable solutions for the event. Rewind was launched in September. The conference is taking place from December 2 to 13 in Madrid.
“Rewind distinguishes itself from other event carpets because not only is it latex-free, but it does not consume water during production, uses 83 per cent less gas and emits 35 per cent less carbon dioxide,” says Anthony Vanden Berghe, sales and marketing director for tradeshow and event at BIG.
Because the carpet is completely latex-free, it is also fully recyclable into a clean, high-quality mono-recyclate, according to a company press release.
