At Pergo, caring for the environment has played a central role in everything we do since we first began making laminate floors. It affects our products, our production, and our choice of raw materials, processes, suppliers, transportation and packaging.
Recycling is a key part of our environmental policy. 80 % of the content of our products consists of wood surplus from the wood industry. We use only renewable wood products such as pine and spruce – never exotic woods or wood from rainforests that are threatened with extinction.
With our firm commitment to care for the environment, Pergo was the first laminate flooring company to receive certification following ISO 14001, showing we have an approved environmental management system.
We are also the first flooring manufacturer to ever achieve the official Nordic Ecolabel, the Green Swan. The Swan represents that our products are certified as a good environmental choice with respect to the product’s overall impact on the environment from raw material to waste.
Our PEFC certified products (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification schemes) signify that all wood used in these products originate from renewable forests.
Another environmental advantage of Pergo laminate floors is the high amount of thermal energy
that can be extracted when burned at waste incineration plants. We use this property to increase
the energy efficiency of our own operations, recycling all wood waste from our milling and sawing processes to heat our production facilities. Environmentally responsible, beautiful and long-lasting – Pergo is a good buy from every point of view.
