We continue to improve our environmental performance and have taken up the challenge of an environmental management system according to DIN EN ISO 14001, by agreeing to undergo a voluntary certification process every 3 years in accordance with EC Regulation No. 761/2001 by an independent test institute.
Why are we doing this?
Firstly, as manufacturers of linoleum, a product consisting of mainly natural re-growing raw materials, has encouraged us to think and act with a greater environmental awareness during every part of the industrial process. Secondly, issues relating to the environment present one of the most important challenges which we all must grapple with in modern times. We accept our duty and responsibilities as a manufacturer so that we might make a contribution towards an improved environment for the future.
It gives us great satisfaction that our hard work in this area has led to us achieving a place on the ‘winner’s rostrum’. All of our products have been awarded the Blue Angel. This environmental award (created by the Federal Secretary of State for the Environment) is awarded for a product which is “…regarded in its entirety as particularly environmentally friendly and at the same time meets high requirements with regard to health and safety as well as merchantable quality …” (www.blauer-engel.de).
