Quick-Step as a European frontrunner
Quick-Step is a sustainability powerhouse. By constantly innovating and making use of recovered wood, we’ve become the European frontrunner in laminate flooring. We’re proud that we were the first flooring manufacturer to receive the EU Ecolabel, since it’s awarded only to products and services that meet high environmental standards.The label is a strong motivator to continue doing what we do best: creating durable floors in a sustainable way.
Impact of the EU ecolabel
Established in 1992, the EU Ecolabel is recognized across Europe and worldwide as a label of environmental excellence. The label was created to encourage producers to generate less waste and CO₂, produce durable and recyclable products, and to provide guidelines for companies looking to lower their environmental impact. Its importance cannot be understated when making the shift towards a more circular economy.
The EU ecolabel’s environmental criteria
The EU Ecolabel criteria provide best practices for companies trying to develop an eco-friendly product line. They’re all about:
- reducing the use of toxic substances
- avoiding deforestation and degradation
- improving waste disposal and recycling
- efficient use of resources & products
- cutting down on carbon emissions.
Stringent third-party controls guarantee adherence to the labels’ requirements. At Quick-Step, we’re proud to meet the EU’s high standards. And we’re proud to be at the forefront of innovation, being the first flooring producer ever to go above and beyond industry standards.
With a breakthrough technology innovation, we’re the first producer in the world to recycle laminate fibreboards into new material. Read all about it.
