Marmoleum, linoleum from Forbo Flooring, stands for sustainability, durability and versatility. Marmoleum flooring combines ecological values with contemporary design. For us, it is an important contribution to a world with a brighter future.
Some 550 gigatonnes of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide are released worldwide each year – not including the levels generated through human activity. The gas is exhaled by living things, escapes from oceans and is released through forest fires, rotting and other processes of organic decay. This huge amount of CO2 is not a problem for nature, as plants and calcifying organisms naturally bind roughly the same amount.
The problem arises from the approximately 40 gigatonnes that are released each year from the burning of fossil fuels and thus have human origins. Climate scientists have calculated that this extra amount cannot be absorbed by nature and will cause the global average temperature on earth to climb by around 3 degrees in the coming decades.
A sense of responsibility towards the environment and the generations to come is an important part of the work we do every day. We are constantly working to further develop our products and make the production process more climate-friendly.
We want everyone who comes into contact with our flooring in any way – whether they plan with it or work, live or play on it – to benefit from our efforts. We have received awards worldwide for our efforts. Learn more about our ratings.
