Complying with environmental
standards
Our products are all labelled with the relevant eco-certificates – and
with the EPD: The environmental product declaration, valid throughout
Europe, forms the data basis for the ecological building evaluation of a
house.
Life cycle
Due to its hard-wearing properties, Eco Balance laminate flooring is
distinguished by a long life span; it can easily be recycled without using
much energy or materials.
Ecological balance
Environmental product declarations (EPD) form the basis for ecological
building evaluation. The declarations are based on ISO standards, are
therefore internationally coordinated and suitable as evidence for envi-
ronmental requirements in public procurement. All Parador laminate
floors are covered by a Type III declaration (ISO14025) and provide infor-
mation about the products' environmental performance. Laminate floor-
ing has outstanding values in terms of primary energy demand and
greenhouse potential.
