UN Climate Conference 2019 chooses recyclable Rewind carpet from Beaulieu International Group

Waregem, Belgium – December 02, 2019 – The United Nations (UN) Climate Conference (COP25) starts today in Madrid. Because the UN itself wants to set a good example, it is focusing on sustainable solutions for the event. That is why the organizers chose the latex-free Rewind event carpet from Beaulieu International Group (B.I.G.), which is 100% recyclable. B.I.G. launched Rewind in September 2019.

The COP25 Climate Conference takes place from December 2 to 13. For this occasion, the UN will cover the exhibition halls of IFEMA - Feria de Madrid with 100,000m² of Rewind carpet.

"Rewind distinguishes itself from other event carpets because not only is it latex-free, but it does not consume water during production, uses 83% less gas and emits 35% less CO2," says Anthony Vanden Berghe, Sales & Marketing Director Tradeshow & Event at B.I.G. Because the carpet is completely latex-free, it is also fully recyclable into a clean, high-quality mono-recyclate.

"B.I.G. is a company that takes its environmental responsibilities seriously and invests in the circular economy," adds Anthony. Rewind is already creating a good basis for a successful climate summit.
