Sustainable flooring by Quick-Step

Sustainable flooring, because we care...

Apart from making our floors as beautiful and enduring as possible, we also strive to make them as sustainable as possible, and to minimise our ecological impact in every way we can. Just like you, we are convinced that a world of beauty is a world where we respect and treasure our natural resources.

This means we’re not just mindful of how we source our raw materials, but also how we provide energy for our production processes, handle our logistics, avoid packaging waste,...

“At UNILIN, we constantlys strive to create beautiful and convenient floors... in the most sustainable way.”

Tino Mulle, Chief Sustainability Officer at UNILIN

Renewable laminate

Did you know our laminate floors are entirely made from residues of the forestry and wood industry? By using leftover wood to create a new product we prevent carbon from being released in the atmosphere as carbon dioxide.

In fact, no tree is felled to create your new dream floor. And we use only commercial wood species such as pine and spruce – never exotic woods or wood from rain forests that are valuable as a wildlife habitat.

All our laminate floors are also Ecolabel stamped. This means they adhere to the most stringent EU rules for indoor air quality, raw materials quality and sourcing, and workers health & safety.

Soft and warm vinyl flooring

Eco-friendly vinyl

Quick-Step vinyl floors aren’t just a pleasure to walk on – they also have a soft spot for nature. Therefore, all internal waste is re-used and during production we use energy from renewable sources as much as possible.

Furthermore, because every floor is completely ortho-phthalate free, you can breathe easily in the comfort that you’ve made an excellent choice.

Hardwood flooring crafted with care

Sustainable wood

In every wood floor we produce, we strive to get the most out of every single tree. Our goal is to create the authentic feeling of pure oak while maintaining extremely high standards for sourcing and logging. Furthermore, by making our floors as wear resistant as possible, we aim to maximise their lifespan.
