Kährs and the environment

Ever since the start in 1857, Kährs has always tried to be a company that is good with the environment. Over the years, we have learnt to capture the beauty and expression of wood, combining good looks with cutting-edge floor technology to produce floors that are durable, stable and easy to install.

Environmental pioneers
Kährs' long-term dedication to the environment has been internationally acknowledged. In 1993, we were the first wood floor manufacturer in the world to obtain ISO 9001 certification, and in 1997 we also achieved ISO 14001 certification.


FSC® and Fairtrade wood and Kährs
In 2011 Kährs was the first company in the world to support and purchase dual-labelled material from Chile that meets both FSC® and Fairtrade certification standards.
