It makes our floorings so especially durable and resistant.
Natural rubber is a core component in many of our products. Today and in the past, we already have been working closely together with our rubber supplier in South East Asia to make sure that the natural rubber is harvested without harming people or the forest. Now we go one step further. We are the first rubber flooring manufacturer to be awarded with the PEFC (the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) certification.
Furthermore, we use synthetic rubber in our products. This is necessary in order to achieve the proven functional properties of our products, such as extraordinary longevity and wear resistance as well as the resistance to oils and greases.
We are working on replacing synthetic rubber with bio-attributed synthetic rubber. Our noracare product, in which we use bio-attributed synthetic rubber for the first time, is a pioneer in this field. The conversion of other products is planned.
What’s in it for the planet/climate? Forests have a huge role to play in our fight to stop climate change. If sustainably managed, forests can help regulate the climate by locking in carbon, and their products provide environmentally friendly alternatives.
