Leading European carpet manufacturer DESSO returns to Ecobuild after an impressive year of innovation and new products that has demonstrated the company’s long term commitment to Cradle to Cradle manufacturing (Stand 2382).
DESSO has signed a partnership agreement with the Environmental Protection Encouragement Agency (EPEA) set up by Professor Dr Michael Braungart. DESSO has become the first carpet manufacturer in EMEA to adopt the EPEA’s Cradle to Cradle design philosophy.
