Marmoleum - 3rd party eco labels

Marmoleum flooring: We take the Green road

Discovering the green road

Marmoleum works with the natural environment not against it and thanks to these natural raw materials brings the natural world inside in the form of a beautiful floor. Marmoleum is also a healthy floor that contributes to a healthy indoor environment that is hygienic and with natural anti-bacterial properties.
Forbo Marmoleum has been awarded a large array of environmental certifications across the world including the Nordic Swan, the Blue Angel, nature plus and Good Environmental Choice Australia (GECA). In addition, Marmoleum flooring improves the environmental and well-being score in building rating schemes such as LEED, Green Star under the Green Building Council Australia and the Well building standard.

Eco labels & third party certification

In line with our sustainability policy, we use various 3rd party transparent certification systems from independent parties worldwide to regularly check and evaluate our floorcoverings.

This is a positive process for Forbo Flooring Systems, as it helps us to draw attention to our sustainability strategy and identify opportunities for improvement. On the other hand, it's also is a check and confirmation for our customers, as external environmental experts confirm that our floor coverings are among the most sustainable and future focused available.

GECA (Good Environmental Choice Australia)

GECA (Good Environmental Choice Australia)

GECA (Good Environmental Choice Australia) is a purpose driven, not for profit that provides solutions for sustainable consumption and production.

Their scheme was the first of its kind in Australia, and has more Australian certified products than any other scheme. They empower architects, builders, designers and consumers to have confidence in their purchasing decisions, and trust GECA certified products to be healthier, safer, and better for the environment.

GECA's Ecolabel is recognised globally as the most robust and credible form of environmental label as it involves multiple criteria and lifecycle considerations. When you see the GECA Ecolabel, you know that the product or service has been independently assessed to meet a wide range of environmental, human health and social impact criteria, while also proving that it performs as promised.

UL certified EPD

UL certified Environmental Product Declaration

An Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) is a comprehensive, internationally-harmonized report that documents the ways in which a product, throughout its lifecycle, affects the environment.

EPDs can be developed after a product life cycle assessment (LCA) is conducted, and are based on applicable product category rules (PCRs).

As an EPD Program Operator, UL Environment helps manufacturers locate existing or create new PCRs and then certifies that all information in a manufacturer’s LCA and finished EPD is accurate. UL Environment also provides Transparency Summary documents to make key information included in the EPD more assessable.
