Environmental commitment

Leading the way with change


We find inspiration in the beauty of the natural world and are committed to producing stylish and durable floors with the lowest possible impact on the environment.


In this section, we explore how our commitment to protecting the environment and developing sustainable working practices can support the wellbeing of people, the planet and economic growth.


With a sustainable construction and people centric approach we are designing healthy products that improve indoor environmental quality. Karndean flooring not only offers the stunning aesthetics of natural materials and the practical benefits of luxury vinyl but also contributes to a green built environment.


Authentically replicating the textures and details of natural materials, Karndean flooring supports emotional connections with interior spaces and visually linking to the outdoor environment, to help nurture healthy relationships with the natural world.


On our Environment policy page, discover how we are working to minimise our impact on the environment and aiming for a market-leading environmental record of achievement. Our accreditations in this field celebrate our successes to date but we are continually striving to further improve our environmental performance.


Designed with cutting edge technology and produced to ISO 14001 Environmental standard and ISO 9001 Quality Standard, you can be confident that specifying a Karndean floor will meet all the latest technical requirements. We regularly evaluate the environmental impact of our gluedown, loose lay and rigid core products, based on the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and publish the results in our Environmental Product Declarations (EPD).


On our Sustainability page, find out how we are meeting our sustainability goals with a people centric approach to support health, wellbeing and prosperity whilst protecting our natural resources and how Karndean flooring contributes to healthy buildings that will protect future generations.
