Occasional information, Brussels, 03/02/2022 — 07:00 CET, 03.02.2022


Recticel Insulation is proud to announce that it has obtained the renowned PEFC label for its multilayer thermal insulation solutions. As such it is the first PIR/PUR manufacturer authorised to use this environmental label.

PEFC, the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification, is a leading global alliance of national forest certification systems, based in Geneva, Switzerland. The non-profit, non-governmental organisation promotes forest management that is environmentally friendly, socially beneficial and economically viable, through independent third-party certification.

Recticel Insulation will be offering high-performance thermal insulation solutions, with multilayer paper facings made from wood fibres sourced from a PEFC-certified and sustainably managed forests.

The PEFC label will be found on the Recticel Eurowall®, Eurothane® Silver, Eurothane® Silver A, Eurofloor, Euroroof®, Eurothane® GP, Eurowall® Cavity and Eurothane® Eurodeck insulation solutions.

Recticel Insulation already held the PEFC label for some of the insulation products manufactured at its plants in Bourges (France) and Stoke-on-Trent (United Kingdom). The certification is now being gradually rolled out to more products and to all plants where multilayer facings are used.

With the PEFC label on our insulation products, we provide proof of our sustainable commitment to the architect, turnkey company, project developer or contractor, but also to the end-user.” says Dirk Vermeulen, Head of Technical Management at Recticel Insulation.
