The aim of GUT (Gemeinschaft umweltfreundlicher Teppichböden e.V.) is to continually optimise environmental and consumer protection during the entire life cycle of a textile floor covering – from manufacture to installation, from use to recycling.
Through the founding of GUT and thanks to the continuous development of its environmental goals, the European carpet industry has revolutionised environmental standards for the floor covering industry.
In collaboration with officially recognised testing institutes throughout Europe, frequent product tests are performed based on strict criteria.
Moreover, GUT supports eco-friendly solutions for the installation of carpet floor coverings and offers objective information on all questions centred round carpet floor covering.
Intensive product testing for chemicals and emissions forms the basis for consumer protection.
