HARO ranks first in commitment to sustainability

The flooring maker HARO has been honoured for its commitment to sustainability in the Germany test conducted by the magazine Focus Money (edition dated 16 March 2019). With this award, the company has demonstrated once again its clear position as a manufacturer of sustainable flooring.

Rosenheim – commitment to sustainability honoured. Consumers in Germany are placing a higher and higher priority on the sustainable activities of companies when they make purchasing decisions. During a national study conducted by the magazine Focus Money in cooperation with the Cologne-based analysis and consulting company Service Value, more than 500,000 consumers were asked to identify the companies that they considered to be particularly sustainable. Consumers voted this way in the “flooring maker” segment: HARO ranked No.1 and was named TEST WINNER for its commitment to sustainability in flooring.

Environment and sustainability

The surveyed consumers were asked to give specific grades for perceivable sustainability, far-sighted environmental activities and the highest level of social responsibility. HARO achieved top scores in all three areas and deservedly ranked first in the competition. This award demonstrated once again that the product philosophy of HARO, Germany’s most success parquet maker, pays off: All HARO products continuously receive the Blue Angel environmental seal in Germany.

For HARO, the award of test winner for its commitment to sustainability demonstrated once again that sustainable commercial activities and business success can go hand in hand. “Of course, we are proud of this award,” said Bernd Reuß, the press spokesman at HARO. “Healthy living flooring produced in Germany and energy- and resource-conserving production operations are one sign of our commitment to sustainability.”
