Sustainability is a major part of Forbo’s daily operation from how we choose our raw materials to the way we make, market and sell our products. All parts working together so that our floor coverings meet our mission of creating a better environment. We use Green design guidelines, green electricity and follow the 4R's principle of: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Renew. However, in order to truly achieve our sustainability goals, we believe that collaborating with others who share the same ideas and vision, is crucial.
This year 2021 Forbo Flooring Systems joined the World Green Building Council’s (WorldGBC) Corporate Advisory Board. A select group of global leaders in sustainability, active in the Building and Construction industry, that serve to help be a guide for the WorldGBC on its strategy and activities to accelerate the sustainable building movement.
The World Green Building Council catalyses the uptake of sustainable buildings for everyone, everywhere. Transforming the building and construction sector across three strategic areas – climate action, health & wellbeing, and resources & circularity – they are a global action network comprised of around 70 Green Building Councils around the globe.
As members of the UN Global Compact, they work with businesses, organisations and governments to drive the ambitions of the Paris Agreement and UN Global Goals for Sustainable Development. Through a systems change approach, their network is leading the industry towards a net zero carbon, healthy, equitable and resilient built environment.
