Green Power!

ROLF BENZ is committed to its corporate responsibility. Following a comprehensive process, the ROLF BENZ and freistil ROLF BENZ brands of the sofa manufacturer from the Black Forest have been awarded “Blue Angel” certification.

This ecolabel is jointly awarded by the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Umweltbundesamt (Federal Environment Agency), the Environmental Label Jury and RAL GmbH.

Germany’s best known brand of upholstered furniture, with its firm commitment to sofas “made in Germany”, has for many years had an enduring appeal, but now with this “Blue Angel” award, it has become even more desirable.

The Rolf Benz company has received confirmation from the highest authority that all its upholstered furniture is low-emission. The institute that carried out the test, RAL gGmbH from Sankt Augustin, also certified the environmentally friendly production of the upholstery materials used (e.g. foams and mats) and cover materials (leather and fabrics).

The criteria for the award of the “Blue Angel” for low-emission upholstered furniture issued by the RAL Institute comprise a total of twenty pages. In addition to the aspect of the eco-friendly production of materials used, it also includes the possibility of replacing individual worn parts, as well as the usability, packaging, recycling and disposal of the seating.

“Obtaining ‘Blue Angel’ certification for our upholstered furniture was an important strategic step for us,” says Jürgen Mauß, Chairman of the Board of Management of RolfBenz AG. “It reflects the fact that today owners of high-quality upholstered furniture place great value on living healthily and on responsible use of resources.”
