Vinyl flooring manufacture explains its environmental commitment

Polyflor, the flooring manufacturer recently published a Sustainability Report that summarizes the environmental credentials of its vinyl flooring.

The environmental assessment organisation BRE examined Polyflor’s range of vinyl floor products and gave it an A+ rating.

Polyflor has launched a Floor Cleaning & Maintenance Course promoting sustainable cleaning systems that clean vinyl floors using environmentally cleaning products, and also maximise the longevity of the vinyl floors.

Another way that Polyflor helps the environment is its takeback scheme, which collects old vinyl flooring for recycling.

Polyflor says that its vinyl flooring is energy efficient. It uses 12% less energy to produce than linoleum, and 50% less energy than ceramic tiles. The firm is also committed to reducing its CO2 emissions in all operations.

Vinyl flooring does not need energy intensive cleaning or harsh chemical cleaners. It is 100% recyclable, so landfill disposal is not required.

Polyflor summarises its environmental policy as:

“Polyflor’s vision is to minimise carbon emissions as much 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.”

Though Polyflor’s data is based on its own vinyl flooring, flooring made from vinyl by other manufacturers should be similarly environmentally friendly.

When choosing solid flooring in your Cheshire home, vinyl is a good choice if you are concerned about environmental issues. The material is both environmentally friendly and practical for all types of floor areas.
