Restoring Australia's natural biodiversity
Forbo Flooring Systems Australia has partnered with Carbon Positive Australia to plant native Australian trees and shrubs to help restore Australia's biodiversity. Not as an offset program, rather as regeneration, since Marmoleum is already CO2 neutral from cradle to gate.
Over the past two years we have managed to plant over 12,000 trees/shrubs and plan to plant many more this year and beyond.

Made by humans
Because Marmoleum floors are made from natural raw materials we depend highly on humans who guide the process of harvesting and preparing the raw materials for further transportation and preparation.
Only when this process is perfectly organised, our craftsmen in the factory can make high quality Marmoleum out of it.
