Marmoleum - Eco labels

Marmoleum flooring: We take the Green road

Discovering the green road

Your environment benefits from using Marmoleum, not just because you are using a floor covering that is made from natural raw materials, which means that you are literally bringing nature inside, but you also benefit from a floor that is contributing to a healthy indoor environment as Marmoleum offers a floor that is hygienic and has natural anti-bacterial properties. Forbo’s Marmoleum has been awarded a large array of international environmental certificates such as the Nordic Swan, the Blue Angel and Nature Plus. In addition, Marmoleum flooring improves the environmental and well-being score in building rating schemes such as LEED, Breeam and the Well building standard.

Eco friendly labels & certification

In line with our sustainability strategy, we use various transparent certification systems from independent third parties worldwide to have our floor coverings regularly checked and evaluated.

This is positive for Forbo Flooring Systems, because it helps us to draw attention to our sustainability strategy and identify opportunities for improvement. On the other hand, it's also a confirmation to our customers, because these eco-labels prove that environmental experts are also convinced that our floor coverings are among the most sustainable and powerful on the market.

The "Blaue Engel" award is given to resilient floor coverings which are produced in an environmentally friendly manner, are safe from a health point of view in the living environment and do not contain pollutants that interfere with recovery.

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.
