Kährs extends its environmental commitment with the world’s first floor made from FSC®-Fairtrade® certified wood

At Domotex 2012, the world’s leading trade fair for floor coverings, Europe’s top manufacturer of wood floors launched four floors from FSC®-Fairtrade® certified wood, marking a world first in certified environmental and socially responsible hardwood flooring.

As the world’s first floor made from dual-certified FSC-Fairtrade wood, Kährs’ new range will be one of the most environmentally conscious and socially responsible wood flooring on the global market. Produced as part of the first FSC-Fairtrade sustainable small scale forestry and ecotourism project in Chile’s Curacautin Valley, the collection supports not only the restoring of biodiversity in the forest, but also reducing poverty and restoring rights to the indigenous Mapuche and descendants of pioneer families.
