CERTIFICATIONS & DECLARATIONS

TRANSPARENCY AND PERFORMANCE

Our products and processes have been awarded stringent environmental certifications for buildings. These third-party verified certifications are one way of demonstrating and communicating the environmental quality. Our declarations provide transparency and availability for everyone. Because Bolon operates in many different markets, we have many different certificates and declarations.
 
For our PVC raw material, we have the third-party ecolabel, Best Practice PVC.
