In a global world, it is not enough for Junckers to improve on a local level
We do our utmost to ensure legal and sustainable forestry, and consequently, sustainable flooring, more effective energy use and good working conditions. We do this through our subsidiaries, as well as by trying to influence our customers, suppliers, and wider society. At Junckers, we care about the climate and take our environmental responsibility seriously. When you select solid hardwood, you make a sustainable choice. Join our mission towards responsible use of one of the planets most precious resources: wood.
SUSTAINABILITY HAS ALWAYS BEEN PART OF OUR DNA
Our story began in 1930, when a young Flemming Juncker united his passion for solid wood floors of the highest quality with a philosophy of sustainable forestry. Ahead of his time, Flemming’s way of collaborating with nature through responsible use of natural resources made him an environmentalist long before the term was invented. Long before global warming became an environmental crisis Junckers searched for ways to use and at the same time preserve one of our most valuable resources. By choosing Junckers solid hardwood flooring you make a positive contribution towards a more sustainable way of living whilst reducing global warming.
JUNCKERS THROUGH TIME
Caring for the climate and the environment is part of every floor we make. The sustainability agenda pushes, inspires, and questions us, whether we are rethinking production methods, making use of by-products, supporting the timber industry, or adding to our environmental credentials. Responsible forestry and sustainability have been part of our DNA since 1930.
CERTIFICATES AND BUILDING SCHEMES
Even though Junckers has always been ahead of its time in caring for the environment, having the right company policies and practices is not enough. We recognise the need to provide independent evidence to clients and designers. We have achieved independent accreditation by a number of international schemes including FSC®, PEFC and ISO 14001. We have also had independent product testing carried out for VOCs and our products' effect on indoor environment under CDPH standards and the Danish Indoor Climate Label scheme and have completed EPDs (Environmental Product Declarations) for our floors. These certificates are an important tool for designers who are designing buildings to the high environmental standards required under BREEAM, LEED, WELL and DGNB schemes.
WOOD IS NATURE'S STROKE OF PURE GENIUS
Wood is nature's stroke of pure genius. Wood is the world’s most environmentally friendly material. There are a lot of reasons why wood is great as a building material - it has the ability to absorb carbon from the air and store it, it is easy to recycle, and it can be used for a wide variety of applications.
