Surface project works to the greatest extent possible with certifications that can verify that a product is sustainably produced, is traceable and meets some high criteria.
Different certifications have different requirements but have in common that the products must be inspected, checked, and fulfil the conditions that are part of the individual certification.

We promote sustainability by having clear goals regarding energy savings and implementation of recycled materials.
It is our ambition to continuously expand our selection of sustainable alternatives and strive to be the sustainable pioneers in our area.

GRS – Global Recycling Standard

It ensures that the material contains recycled parts, and also includes environmental factors, chemical restrictions and social aspects.

GRS has 2 different certifications:

Class 1: Only products consisting of a minimum of 50% recycled material may be marked with GRS. If a product does not consist of 100% GRS certified content, this must be clearly stated.

Class 2: Products with several different types of recycled material must declare this in the specified percentage for each type of material.
