Sustainability

Sustainability matters at Polyflor

Polyflor's vision is to be as carbon neutral as possible, as well as being socially and economically responsible. The vision of our business model is fully encompassed by the Three Pillars of Sustainability, which focus on Environment, People, and Economic sustainability.

As a responsible manufacturer, minimizing environmental impact is critical to our business ethos and it is in line with our environmental management system, ISO 14001. We have a clear vision of our challenging objectives and we have set target dates by which we intend to achieve them. These objectives for continual improvement permeate throughout the entire life cycle of Polyflor’s products.

Transparency is key at a time where environmental issues become increasingly important and companies seek commercial advantage wherever they can. The term greenwashing is one that we are all aware of and something that we want to avoid.

We understand how environmental topics can be emotional subjects however Polyflor trade on legislation not emotion, facts and not rumours.

Polyflor’s goal is to be as transparent and informative as possible, operating an open communication policy.

In recent years Polyflor has achieved many great milestones, including:

  • Becoming the first vinyl manufacturer to achieve individual BRE A ratings (now A+ ratings)
  • Being the first commercial flooring manufacturer to achieve GreenTag LCARate certification
  • The first flooring manufacturer to achieve BES 6001 certification for Responsible Sourcing
  • Being a co-founder member of Recofloor, the market leading recycling scheme for vinyl flooring

We're not stopping at these positive credentials. Polyflor recognizes the need to continually improve our sustainability performance. Like all manufacturers, we have an environmental impact and we also have an important responsibility to minimize this impact. This is our story.
