Buy Back & Recycle Scheme
We operate in an industry that can change the future so we embrace the design and assessment methods of BREEAM, LEED and SKA. We supply products that meet these environmental criteria.
Large manufacturers recognize the potential damage that their manufacturing processes may cause and are taking action in every way to minimize and offset this and every Corporate Social Responsibility mission is focused into the better use and management of resources.
So what really happens to flooring products when they are no longer needed?
In reality flooring product is disposed of and changed for numerous reasons.
It is very unlikely that flooring products are disposed of because they have worn out. Now with a longer life expectancy of product and longer guarantees offered by manufacturers this is not going to change.
Flooring products are primarily changed, due to innovatios in the flooring industry, as better more performance based options are available.
Companies seek larger spaces and more efficient buildings, widely recognising that better working environments attract and retain staff.
With the growth of the importance of corporate health and wellbeing, the working environment is constantly under scrutiny. Invariably the casualties in all this are the floors upon which we walk!
