At Quick-Step, we are convinced that 'the world you'd love to live in' is not just a world of stylish
interiors. It's also a world that shows respect for our natural environment. That's why, as a company,
we make continuous efforts to minimize the ecological impacts of our products and processes. Every
day, we seek new ways to recycle, reduce, reuse, recover and renew throughout the entire Quick-Step
WE USE CAREFULLY SCREENED RAW MATERIALS
Our Quick-Step laminate boards are made of more than 75% chips from sustainable wood
sources. Not a single exotic tree is harvested to create our exotic laminate floors.
Wood that is used for our hardwood floors is only sourced from controlled or ecologically certified
Our Quick-Step glue, lacquer and oil meet the strictest international emission norms, so you can
enjoy your wood floor in all confidence and without worries.
WE INVEST IN ENERGY-EFFICIENT
We have optimized the thermal energy
management in our production facilities in
Belgium and Malaysia. All wood waste from our
milling and sawing processes is burnt in an
incinerator and the resulting energy is reused to
generate heat for the production of our laminate
and hard wood floors.
WE AIM FOR SMALLER PACKAGING
We have drastically reduced the packaging of our
Quick-Step 'Exquisa' laminate floors. Compared to
other products, the innovative packaging of
Exquisa uses up to 50% less source material.
WE COMPLY WITH PEFC AND CE
All our Quick-Step parquet floors are CE labelled.
This means that they have met EU consumer,
safety, health and environmental standards. All
our floors are tested in recognised laboratories
and we largely meet the minimum requirements.
For a long time already, we are
PEFC certified (Programme for
the Endorsement of Forest
Certification). This label ensures
that all wood used in our wood
and laminate floors originates
from sustainably managed forests.
