Sustainability 2018-02-08T11:46:36+00:00


The Brundtland Commission have stated in 1987 that Sustainability is meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. In case of the members of the ERFMI committee this means that all members are constantly striving to find the best possible and most sustainable options to produce and sell the products that are in their portfolio. According to this permanent goal ERFMI members research and work on developments with regard to better raw materials, easier ways of recycling, cleaner production, healthier development, etc and make adjustments possible.

For instance when alternatives for raw materials become available, any party should have the mindset to investigate and evaluate whether this option can be considered for their product and whether it contributes to all pilars in sustainability being the economic part, the social part and the overarching environmental part.

To subscribe this development, ERFMI has already in the past taken the lead to encourage all its members to provide their data for an EU wide Life Cycle Assesment of a broad range of flooring types, not limited to only resilients. From this study, carried out by third party PE International, a series of Environmental Product Declarations (EPD’s) has been produced. The data behind it is constantly being updated based on the latest developments, it helps people and decision maker to make comparisons on categories they feel are important for them.
