The weighted average of our Marmoleum product range is CO2neutral (cradle to gate) without offsetting, which does not affect the worldwide climate change. It combines ecological values with contemporary design and offers an important contribution to a sustainable world.
Offset means that the CO2 emission is not reduced in the production of the floor but by taking other initiatives like planting trees to compensate for the emission. The manufacturing of Marmoleum is CO2 neutral (cradle to gate) by itself.
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.
The restoring capacity of natural resources is the bases for the circular economy. In essence linoleum is a bio-cycle product, this means that the natural raw materials basically could be composted and returned to earth as nutrients to the new grown rapid natural raw materials.
