Taking care of the environment

And that’s exactly what we do at Forbo Flooring Systems: take good care of the environment. From an ergonomic, economical and ecological point of view, our Marmoleum is the natural choice for floor coverings and furniture surfaces. We provide a clear insight into our environmental performance and into our commitment to continued process improvement.

Life-cycle analyses (LCAs) are applied throughout the world to quantify the potential environmental impacts of a product system over the lifecycle (i.e. from the extraction of the raw materials to the disposal of the product at the end of its useful life).

A product’s ‘eco-balance’ is based on an analysis of: its durability and whether its production;
- uses primary energy carriers, such as mineral oil and gas;
- depletes scarce raw materials;
- has fertilization effects;
- leads to acidification;
- damages the ozone layer;
- contributes to global warming;
- produces waste products.

The results of an LCA of a number of floor coverings rank Marmoleum first as a nature-friendly floor covering, together with pure, unlacquered wood. In addition, Marmoleum earned an honorable mention for its long lifespan.
