At Parador, only certified raw materials are used to manufacture products that are healthy for the home. At our production site at the European Centre for Renewable Energy (EEE), we use 100 % green electricity from hydropower – CO2-neutral and efficient. Whilst the use of domestic timbers in the production of engineered wood flooring guarantees short transport routes, the material used to support our other floors and panels is made completely from recyclable materials; for instance, the decor papers on our laminate floors are composed 100 % of recycled paper. Once installed, all Parador products are distinguished by a long life cycle due to their stable composition and durability. Where we can, we use materials that can easily be recycled in terms of energy and material. Engineered wood flooring in particular stores CO2, which has a positive effect on the climate and is proven to reduce the greenhouse effect. In terms of primary energy consumption and greenhouse potential, our other products have outstanding eco balance values.
