A HOLISTIC APPROACH TO SUSTAINABILITY

For several decades, Bolon has taken a proactive approach to sustainability. From combining development and manufacturing in Ulricehamn, which gives control and the opportunity to optimise resources to benefit the environment, to focusing on sustainability throughout the chain; including sourcing raw materials, installation and the transition of our products after-use to a circular economy.

It’s a journey of innovation that starts long before flooring is produced and long after it has fulfilled its intended purpose.

Our designer floors are resource efficient and all collections use recycled material. Raw materials are sourced from only the greenest polymer factories

Bolon floor is always completely free of phthalates and heavy metals

100% RENEWABLE ENERGY

Our factory is powered by 100% renewable electricity, free of any climate footprint

99% of the time, water is all that is needed to clean a Bolon floor

INTEGRATED RECYCLING

LESS FOSSIL-BASED MATERIAL

HEALTH-FRIENDLY

10–15-YEAR WARRANTY

Our floors are hard-wearing with a long life, which is why we offer a 10–15-year warranty

STEP BY STEP TOWARDS A SUSTAINABLE DESIGNER FLOOR

Sustainable development requires resource-efficient materials produced in an environmentally friendly manner that can also be recycled and are part of a circular economy. With this in mind, Bolon measures its sustainability efforts across three focus areas: material, climate and chemicals.
