Sustainability On a Roll to Zero Emission
We have been covering the soil with our diverse product range for 75 years; from needle felt to dirt-trapping mats. Our scale size also entails the necessary responsibilities. Taking the environment and people's health into consideration, we are fully engaged in sustainability. The aim is to be able to produce energy-neutral, low-emission circular products together with our other members within the foreseeable future.
ENVIRONMENTAL FRIENDLINESS SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS
Sustainability plays an important role at VEBE. We produce all our products in a clean and energy-efficient manner, using sustainable raw materials. We use recycled polyester fibers, for example, for needle felt carpets and Econyl® yarns for dirt-trapping products. Through various tests and experiments, we are well on our way to developing sustainable products in every segment in which we are active.
REACH-declaration OUR PRODUCTS ARE SAFE
Our flooring solutions are safe and contain no hazardous substances. We follow the REACH-declaration, which is a regulation of the European Union that was enacted to improve the protection of human health and the environment from the risks that can arise from chemicals. The REACH declaration confirms that only harmless substances are used to manufacture our entire range of textile floor coverings and no hazardous substances are used in the production process.
