Certified countertop for everyone

The first total-certified countertop solution

In 2015 HORN started the development of the markets first certified countertop collection, which were to be known as GREEN Collection.

GREEN Collection included selected low-price and high-end products, and were certified to ensure a healthier indoor climate and an improved production method along the value chain. The collection were also tested against harmful substances, complied with strict environmental requirements and were produced using a limited energy consumption.

It still is.

We have come so far, that today we can assure you will find sustainable aspects no matter which product line you look into - And most importantly we have a plan to continuously be increasing the overall sustainability of each product.

 

 

FSC - Forest Stewardship Council

Our primary inquiry is wood based materials, and as deforestation is one of the greatest causes of carbon pollution, it is extremely inportant for to minimize our impact in this regard. Yes, wood is a renewable source, but we need to make sure the forests are well managed to protect our eco systems. The FSC certification ensures that products come from responsibly managed forest.
This means, that not only do we make sure that wood materials bought from HORN is not causing deforestation - We also make sure that workers have the right equipment to do a safe job AND that we are protecting the community and areas of cultural significance.

We also wanted to make sure our products weren’t harming to the indoor air climate of our consumers.
The Indoor Air Comfort certification ensures that our products deduce even less than strict market requirements from the entire european market. Thereby it is a mark of quality that protect users from chemicals that may be potentially harmful to their health.

The Indoor Air Comfort certification documents that our products comply with requirements for VOC emissions from, for example; BREEAM, BREEAM-NOR, LEED, M1 as well as a number of criterias from voluntary labeling schemes, such as EU-Ecolabel; "The Flower" as well as the international German "Blaue Engel".

  The Nordic Swan Ecolabel

With our FSC Certification we have an improved control of our upstream value chain, and with the Indoor Air certification we fulfil chemical and emission requirements that contribute to a healthier indoor air climate.
Actually the two are very important elements of being able to achieve our next certification: The Nordic Swan Ecolabel.
But, the Ecolabel is more holistic than that! It certifies the entire product lifecycle and thereby also include a focus on using limited energy consumption and that the production facilities meet strict environmental requirement and that we as manufacturers are looking into how we can extend the product lifetime and ultimately that the product can be recycled safely.
