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!
The Asian smog, the ocean’s plastic soup and the concern about depletion of natural resources all are 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.

Key is the assessment and control of the effect of the combination of environmental parameters (thermal, acoustic, lighting and air quality) on people and the built environment, in order to turn the negative effect around into a positive experience*.

What can a flooring company do to contribute to the health of an individual? For us it means; having a broad portfolio that allows us to offer the best solution in each situation, as well as acting where improvements are possible, and setting a standard where innovation is leading us.

Committed to the health of one, is our ambition where every individual in whatever way connected to our floors, benefits from our endeavor to create a better indoor environment.
