Certificates A glance at our PROVEN quality
Many of our companies and products hold multiple (sustainable) certificates. These internationally renowned certificates are independently assessed and cover environment-related aspects, as well as the health and well-being of customers and employees. The certificates below have been obtained within Condor Group; some for a specific product or industry, others apply to all products. Our representatives can tell you more about them.
The Eurofins Indoor Air Comfort Gold is Eurofins' highest achievable label indicating whether a product meets low emission requirements. It is also used as proof to show that a product contributes to a healthy indoor climate. We also have this certificate specifically for products. If you would like to know more, please feel free to contact your sales manager or contact person.
Der Blauer Engel
A label used especially in Germany is Der Blaue Engel. This is an environmental label for products with a low environmental impact. Several criteria are considered before such a certificate can be awarded. These criteria cover a product's impact on the climate, materials and water consumption and pollution. Analyses are also used to assess energy consumption during production and the presence of toxic substances.
Member of the DGNB
The German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB) is the label for Sustainability within the construction and real estate sector. It is an organisation that we as Condor Group are members of in order to develop solutions for a sustainable built environment together with stakeholders within the carpet sector.
Whether a carpet meets various environmental requirements during production can be proven with the GUT certificate. We have this certificate for every product.
ISO 14001 is the international standard for a good environmental management system. This certificate supports a company for developing an environmental policy and implementing it.
A quality management system can be certified through the ISO 9001 certificate. It provides insights into how business processes can be continuously controlled and improved. A number of our members have obtained this certificate.
CRI Green Label Plus
This certificate was developed by the Carpet and Rug Institute (GRI) to test carpets against strict criteria for low chemical emissions. The Green Label Plus indicates that our products have low emissions.
Several VEBE qualities have been awarded the TÜV PROFiCERT - product certificate. This certification provides information about the products and their production with health and ecology as starting points.
All our products contain no substances and materials that could have a negative impact on the well-being and safety of users. That is why all our grades comply with REACH directives. REACH stands for Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals. This means that a carpet in your living room does not contain any chemicals that could be harmful.
