Expanding our horizons
objectflor flooring is manufactured worldwide on our behalf by specially authorised and certified partners. In this respect, our most important tasks, as a non-manufacturing company, are to define clear quality and sustainability standards and to monitor compliance with these standards along the whole supply chain.
This is achieved by means of both internal and external audits. Consequently, all our production sites and their suppliers are certified to the ISO 9001 quality management standard and to the ISO 14001 environmental management standard.
We are also in the process of introducing so-called EMAS certification across the board in accordance with the EU directive on the assessment of environmental management systems.
Anyone wanting to take sustainability really seriously has to see the bigger picture. In our case, this means that, with regard to optimum indoor air quality, we not only focus on our own products but on the quality and environmental friendliness of the adhesives and fillers used when laying the floor.
We are continually examining all current products with regard to their production quality, seal of approval and their environmental certificates. These assessments result in our customers being given regularly updated floor-laying recommendations in accordance with the relevant EC1 or EC1 Plus standard. It is our conviction that our responsibility in relation to sustainability does not end after our flooring has been laid. This is one of the reasons why our flooring is equipped with particularly easy-care surfaces or surface finishes, reducing the use of detergents to a minimum and consequently optimising life-cycle costs.
