Eco award goes to Dunlop Flooring's Springtread carpet
Aug '11
Dunlop Flooring has been recognised among Australia's most innovative organisations, winning the Australian Business Award for “Best Eco-Friendly Product” for 2011.

The Australian Business Awards challenges the full spectrum of private, public and non-profit sector organisations in Australia through its comprehensive business and product award categories.

Now in its sixth year, the Australian Business Awards program recognises organisations that demonstrate the core values of business and product excellence, corporate responsibility, sustainability and commercial success in their respective industries.

The Australian Business Award for “Best Eco-Friendly Product” recognises environmentally friendly products or services that demonstrate innovation and commitment to sustainable living.
Commenting on the win, Sean Forde the National Marketing Manager said: “this award recognises our commitment to environmentally responsible manufacturing, and our underlay recycling program. The Springtred carpet underlay range is an excellent example of the sustainability definition.”

The Dunlop Springtred range is Australia's premier domestic carpet underlay range. Each underlay is specially designed to offer a different level of comfort and support, whilst importantly making a significant difference to the life of the carpet. Unlike other underlays on the market the Springtred range not only offers great cushioning and support but is also 100% recyclable at the end of its useful life.

Tara Johnston, Program Director of the Australian Business Awards, said the standard of entries for 2011 was a testament to the strength and resilience of the Australian economy.

“Australian businesses continue to adapt business processes, invest in product development and develop initiatives that increase productivity and quality standards for all. The Australian Business Awards provide a welcome opportunity for organisations committed to business and product excellence to receive recognition throughout their respective industries for driving positive business outcomes,” said Johnston.
