[Reminder] “GGG !”….. Go Green with Guyenne !
We started talking to you about it for the first time just a few months ago… As part of its policies and its commitments, the EU has prepared a set of constraining legislative acts that should allow it to achieve its energy objectives and to fight against climate change by 2020.
But you will ask us: what is the link with our line of work ? Well, you may know that elements based on plastics emit airborne particles and contain VOCs. VOCs, or Volatile Organic Compounds, include substances that can easily be emitted into the atmosphere. VOCs volatility poses a serious threat leading to direct as well as indirect impacts on the environment, on the fauna, and on human health. They are considered to be air contaminants.
Starting in 2018, tolerance levels will be reviewed. But there is no doubt that the measures that will be taken in the next few decades will become increasingly drastic. Joint work with the authorities is under way in order to set up regulations that will be common to all EU countries.
Since 2013, let us point out that labelling construction products, wall and floor coverings, paints and varnish sold in France is mandatory in terms of Volatile Organic Compounds emissions. The label must indicate VOCs emission levels on a scale ranging from class A+ (very low emissions) to class C (high emissions).
In Germany, administrations and policy makers require that new products be tested before marketing. The DIBt (technical authority in the construction sector) made this test mandatory and the AgBB certification became a prerequisite to market coverings in Germany. The authorities set the levels. If a product is not within the limits prescribed, marketing is prohibited. An additional label «Ü» is even mandatory for some products.
Decorative products are also concerned. And in order to be in line with the authorities and to be finished with all the standards, rules and constraints, GGG with our products « PVC Free» !

They are all non-woven and recyclable wallpapers, free of PVC, with a print quality which is as good as the quality you can get from vinyl wallpapers containing plastics.
