By using natural and carbon neutral Marmoleum flooring, construction projects can now minimise their carbon footprint and help restore Australian native landscapes at the same time.
Forbo's tagline, 'creating better environments,' expresses the awareness and effort to contribute to a better world for people and the environment in which we live. As a company, we are committed to meeting our obligations to future generations and acting in a sustainable way.
Manufacturing a product that is naturally carbon neutral and working with an organisation like CNCF to replant native trees and shrubs is just one way we can make a positive and real difference to the built and natural local environment.
'Every square metre of Marmoleum' used now contributes to restoring Australian native forests. CNCF plants native trees creating long term carbon sinks which in addition to capturing carbon provide habitat and protection of local native species.
The Carbon Neutral Charitable Fund is a not for profit organisation and uses the funds raised through donations and carbon offsets to plant native trees on degraded land in Australia. CNCF reforestation projects sequester carbon whilst helping to restore the landscape and conserve the natural biodiversity. CNCF also conduct vital research about Australian natural bushland. Since 2001 CNCF has planted over 5.4 million trees across 3,812 hectares and 160 sites.
Carbon Neutral Charitable Fund (CNCF) helps individuals, families, and organisations to minimise their impact on the environment.
Their MISSION ... to assist the community to adopt a more sustainable approach to a healthy environment and to reduce greenhouse gas (carbon) emissions.”
What CNCF Plant?
CNCF restores degraded land in Australia back to its natural state by planting native endemic species of trees and shrubs. Seeds are collected and harvested locally to ensure plantings support the natural biodiversity of the local area.

Carbon is natural. Right now too much carbon is being released than is being stored. This creates the greenhouse effect and sets negative impacts in motion.
How do we fix carbon imbalance?
Trees and they absorb carbon and store it in their woody biomass. If we plant more trees while reducing emissions we can reduce impacts and hopefully reverse the levels of carbon in the atmosphere.
