- Forbo’s ecological linoleum floors are made from completely natural materials.
- Sustainability is very important to Forbo; in fact, they’ve placed it at the heart of their business! They believe it comes down to how it’s made and how it performs:
- How it’s made: This flooring manufacturer is very selective about the way they choose materials and create flooring; they use the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) to measure their overall impact on the environment. Forbo’s goal is to reduce their environmental footprint by 25% by 2015. With every single new product, they increase material and energy efficiency, minimize damage and pollution, and reduce long-term harm to a minimum. From their Marmoleum (their brand of linoleum), which is made from 97% natural materials and is 100% biodegradable, to their carpet tiles that are made with more than 50% recycled content, Forbo’s products are all made in an eco-friendly way.
- How it performs: Forbo Flooring Systems thinks about how its products will perform over the course of their lifetime. In addition to needing less maintenance and fewer cleaning chemicals over the years, this allows the manufacturer to pass savings along to the consumer.
