NEW THINKING FOR NEW SOLUTIONS.
"The core of our family business: Innovative thinking and acting. Developing sustainable products to market maturity is one of our top priorities. Not just since today, but for more than 70 years.
And that's why cradle to cradle suits us so well: it follows a concept that considers materials, products and corporate responsibility in their overall ecological impact. Product intelligence, so to speak, following nature's example. With the certification of the organic floor, we are setting an example in healthy living.
This is what we want to contribute to with our floors. For us, taking responsibility seriously means, in concrete terms, continuous development in the sense of sustainable products and solutions. With a healthy dose of curiosity forever new solutions. And a great deal of commitment. This is what we have, by nature, so to speak, in our corporate DNA."
We make the world a healthy and sustainable place floor solutions simpler and more liveable.
Windmöller Company Vision
Why did Windmöller decide to go for a certification like C2C?
The basic principle underlying the Cradle to Cradle philosophy is convincing and groundbreaking for the future. It is internationally recognised and, unlike other labels, forms an overall sustainability balance. We at Windmöller can identify very well with this way of thinking. Cradle to Cradle products are thought through from development to the end. It considers not only the entire product life cycle, but also its wider global impact. The criteria used in the evaluation are many times higher, visionary and broader in scope than other environmental labels.
Windmöller is a member of CIRQUALITY OWL and supports sustainable production is Ostwestfalen Lippe. More information about Windmöller's activities can be found on the CIRQUALITY website.

OUR FOUNDATION: THE TRIAD
TINA KAMMER ARCHITECT INTERIORPARK, STUTTGART
"Our office has been accompanying sustainable developments for over ten years. We are constantly on the lookout for pioneers who have taken the path of recycling management on their own initiative. Companies with this attitude inevitably develop good products. Ceilings, walls and floors define rooms in which we spend almost 90 percent of our life time.
Making this living environment healthy should be in all our interests. Meeting the high demands placed on floor coverings and using low-emission, recyclable materials is a task that Windmöller has taken on with the PURLINE organic floor developed by the company. For this reason we have included these innovative floor coverings in our curated selection".
