Marmoleum, CO2 neutral, naturally

With the impacts of climate change and global warming closer to home than ever before, we're pleased to announce that our Marmoleum 2.5mm, is now independently EPD confirmed as manufactured CO2 neutral, without the need for carbon offsetting.

We all make choices every day, but which are the right choices when it comes to minimising the impact on climate change? We recognise that as a manufacturer we must make a commitment to do as much as possible to help our customers make more responsible choices.

Make a conscious choice, make Marmoleum count

In simple terms, the CO2 produced in the extraction, transportation and manufacturing process of Marmoleum 2.5mm is balanced by the removal of CO2 through the growing of its natural ingredients such as flax, jute and rosin.

As we all now consider how to make more conscious decisions when it comes to selecting building and interior materials, we wanted to make Marmoleum count towards helping to reduce the embodied carbon of future and refurbished buildings.

Why does climate change matter?

Each year we see more and more extreme weather events occuring around the world which are being magnified due to the effects of global warming, from hurricanes and heatwaves to wildfires and drought. But the effects of global warming are even closer to home than before. In 2018, the UK experienced both extreme temperatures and flash flooding. Here 'Mother Nature' explains why we need nature but why it doesn't need us.

The UN is urging accelerated action by all countries to implement their commitments to climate change goal 13
By delivering their agreed CO2 reduction commitments as outlined in the Paris Agreement

Transparency of an EPD

An Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) is an independently verified and registered document that communicates transparent and comparable information about the life-cycle environmental impact of a product. Forbo goes beyond the requirements of the PCR (Product Category Rules) that are followed in producing an EPD by also declaring the impacts on human health and eco toxicity.

Ours are available to download and help you make that responsible choice:

Eco labels & certification

A sense of responsibility towards the environment and subsequent generations are at the centre of our Creating Better Environments ethos.

Our EPD will be added to the many independent sustainability accolades Marmoleum already holds including Nature Plus, Blue Angel and the Nordic Swan.
