Environmental responsibility has been a core value within the Harlequin Group for many decades. Environmentally compatible products and state-of-the-art processes ensure that each production stage minimises our environmental impact.
We engage in responsible product sourcing that combines our customers’ preference for quality with care for the environment, carefully selecting suppliers who reflect our environmental and social concerns. We constantly seek to improve the environmental performance of our processes from manufacture through installation and ongoing maintenance. Raw materials and energy are used efficiently, waste is recycled wherever possible and emissions are kept to an absolute minimum.
Certification and material sourcing: Timber
We either use chain of custody certification or FSC certified sources and documentation is available regarding provenance on request.
PVC lifecycle and policy
PVC floor coverings can be fully recycled and are therefore often described as a sustainable product. The Harlequin Group recycles nearly 100% of its post manufacturing waste. We also buy in further recycled PVC material, thereby actively reducing the amount of used PVC sent to landfill. As part of our commitment to Product Stewardship, we will also recycle any Harlequin product returned to our factories in Europe for recycling at the end of its life, thus minimising our and our customers’ carbon footprints.
