Sustainability

Making Vinyl Better

We are constantly striving to improve the environmental profile of our vinyl products through local and international initiatives.

How it's made
• Step has at least 20% recycled content .
• Innovative slip resistant particles, Step Crystals, contribute to a clean and fresh design, easier cleaning and an improvement in our environmental performance.
• We produce all our vinyl in Europe where it meets the highest possible current and future REACH compliance standards for chemical content.
• 100% of the electricity consumed in the production of Step is from renewable sources.
• Step is manufactured in production facilities that are certified to ISO14001 – environmental management standard

How it performs
• All ranges in our Step collection are phthalate-free
• We use smart material constructions and durable finishes on Step. A micro embossing technology reduces the need for chemical cleaning.

Social accountability
We care for the people that touch our business, from employees to suppliers. That’s why all our UK manufacturing facilities and most of our sites in Europe are certified to SA8000®. The SA8000 Standard is one of the world’s preeminent social standards which aims to protect workers along each step of the supply chain and we are the only UK flooring company to have achieved this certification. Forbo was also involved in the development of BES 6002 (BRE’s Ethical Labour Sourcing Standard) and became the 1st flooring company certified to this standard.
