Health, the next step in sustainability
For quite some time the environmental debate has had a future oriented focus: taking care about what matters for future generations. The actual situation makes clear, that what really matters is: Now! What we do now to protect the future. The Asian smog, the ocean’s plastic soup and the concern about depletion of natural resources are all topics that are relevant today. At Forbo Flooring Systems we want to concentrate on today’s environment and the way it affects you and your health.
International trend reports describe health as ‘the new wealth’. The newly established chair on indoor environment at the Delft Technical University, health rating systems for buildings and research on positive effects of nature in the workplace all make a clear link to health.
