Our environmental commitments for 2025

As part of our sustainable development policy, entitled "We Care / We Act", we have defined five priority commitments for 2025.

Those priorities include reducing our carbon footprint, developing the use of bio-based and recycled contents in our products, increasing the number of looselay solutions and setting ambitious recycling targets for our floor coverings.

 20% reduction in kg of CO2 per m² of product by 2025

First commitment for 2025, we want to drastically reduce our carbon footprint: 20% reduction in kg of CO2 per m² of product (calculated on scopes 1 & 2 defined in the greenhouse gas protocol). 

This objective is in line with the reduction of our carbon emissions: between 2016 and 2019 our emissions have already reduced by 16%. 

What is our strategy to achieve this? To limit our carbon footprint at all stages of the product’s life cycle, particularly on raw materials, durability and ease of maintenance.

10% bio-sourced content by 2025

Our bio-based solutions include DLW linoleum (98% natural), Saga cork-backed tiles and Mipolam Symbioz homogeneous floor coverings featuring plasticisers made from cereal crop residue.

We are looking to develop these solutions so that they account for 10% of our business activities by 2025.

30% recycled materials by 2025

On average, our flooring currently contains 25% recycled materials. By 2025 we hope to reach 30%. 

The recycled material comes from industrial waste, installation off-cuts or end-of-life products, mainly collected through our Second Life program. 

What can we guarantee? That integrating these recycled components in no way reduces the quality and performance of the floor coverings. 

35% looselay products by 2025

We believe that non-adhesive installation represents the future of floor coverings. In addition to offering better indoor air quality, it enables easier and faster installation (saving time and money). 

On the environmental side, it saves CO2 from the glue and facilitates recycling at the end of life, avoiding glue residues and patching.

Looselay products now account for 25% of Gerflor's sales. Our ambition is to reach 35% by 2025. 

60,000 tonnes of recycled products by 2025

By 2025 we want to recycle 60,000 tonnes of materials per year, compared to 50,000 in 2020. 

How do we go about meeting this challenge? 

Our two collection channels: 

  • Second Life:  Gerflor collection of “clean” installation off-cuts and end-of-life products.
  • PVC Next:  reprocessing of non-standard end-of-life products.

A recycling plant specialising in flexible flooring.

  • Named Floor To Floor, this plant is the result of the co-investment of Gerflor and Paprec, leader in recycling.
  • It sorts the collected off-cuts and transforms them into granules which are then reintegrated into the composition of new Gerflor products.

Gerflor Australasia is also a founding signatory of the ResiLoop recycling program set to launch in 2024.
