To put our corporate vision into practice even more, Z-Parket is launching a brand new product in the form of the Z², X² en M² series.
These series will be available within all the existing collections and will give our customers and partners with the possibility to, together with Z-Parket, make a small ecological and social effort. This initiative, however small it may appear to our customers, will have an enormous positive impact.
It goes without saying that it will still be the customer who will have the choice between the traditional Z, X and M collections or participation in this social and durable initiative.
Ondernemers Zonder Grenzen (OZG) commits itself to the replantation of forests in order to make a real difference when it comes to global ecology and social order. As opposed to other durable initiatives OZG doesn’t limit itself to the replantation of cut down trees, but is committed to stopping desertification and restoring ecosystems in wastelands such as the Sahel. On top of all this, these initiatives are including local inhabitants to such an extent they themselves will be able to restore their environment and keep it viable. This results in an significant reduction of CO2, the self-sufficiency of entire populations in places that no longer appeared viable and a revival of nature in these locations. The effectiveness of this approach quickly becomes clear when looking at the rediscovery of different species of animals and insects that were long thought to be extinct.
Through our Z-Parket² program Z-Parket, its distributor and the customer each invest € 1,00 per square meter of installed parquet flooring. These € 3,00 equal the reforestation of no less than 6 trees. For only 100 m² this runs up to no less than 600 trees. Z-Parket offers the perfect opportunity for manufacturer, distributor and customer to unite and make an impressive effort in this important ecological and durable initiative.
Since Z-Parket wishes to be 100% transparent towards all participating customers, regular updates are sent to Z² customers to inform them of the total amount of funds. Once the group purchase of trees is done, we will clearly indicate how many m² of forests we be replanted.
This means that every customer that chooses to pay € 1,00 extra per square meter of parquet that is purchased, will be receiving quite a lot in return:
- Participation in an important ecological and social initiative
- High standards, beautiful parquet flooring
- Flooring that meets all of the following European standards
