Real wood enhances the quality of life in your home by creating a cozy and natural living environment. Opting for real wood also constitutes a conscious decision to protect the environment. Look for the Real Wood logo when buying your real wood floors.
Why Using Real Wood is Good for the Environment
The environmental benefits of choosing real wood are indisputable. Far less energy is consumed in timber production, processing and disposal, than with any other construction material. And, after each wood harvest, the forests are replanted for the next generation.
Today, because the popularity of real wood floors has grown, so too has the commitment to cultivation. Many more trees are grown than are currently harvested, so increased demand has had a positive effect on the environment.
Real Wood Encourages the Planting of More Trees
The more trees we use, the more we plant, because virtually all of the European wood that is used is sourced from managed forests. ‘Harvesting’ creates space for new growth – and this often happens at a rate of two trees planted for every one felled.
Real Wood is Completely Recyclable
Wood is completely recyclable. In fact, it’s can be used in three different stages. Firstly, it is used to create a product. Secondly, the product itself can be recycled, and thirdly, it can be used for energy generation. No other renewable material can equal this, in terms of volume and economy.
Real Wood Replaces Carbon-Hungry Alternatives
Not only is the production and processing of wood highly energy-efficient, giving wood products an ultra-low carbon footprint, but wood can often be used to substitute materials like steel, aluminium, concrete or plastics, which require large amounts of energy during production.
Real Wood Reduces Greenhouse Gases
The ‘carbon sink’ effect of wood products has a significant role to play in reducing greenhouse gases. Increasing the use of wood products still further will continue to reduce the negative effect in the atmosphere.

Engineered parquet floors are particularly low in emissions and therefore promote a healthy home environment. The strict test catalog of the well-known eco-Institut helps you to be sure of this.
Ü-mark (Engineered Parquet Floors)
The mark of conformity indicates that products conform to building authority standards and the generally accepted rules of structural engineering. Independent testing institutes are responsible for ensuring that the provisions are met.
