Matting and the Environment

It may be cliché to state, but the environment has never been such a hot topic. COBA Europe aspires to continually improve its products and processes to reduce its impact on the planet. And like many products in our lives, floor mats rely on modern materials to give them the best beneficial characteristics.

Here at COBA, we want to find ways where the risks of slips or fatigue in a workplace can be eliminated to cause the least harm to the environment.

Reducing energy use

COBA carbon-offsets all the gas used at its main facility in Warwickshire, which recently totalled 9.13 tonnes over a four-month period. The building also features solar panelling on its roof to produce more clean energy and to further reduce the organisation’s dependence on the grid

Eco-friendly packaging

Yes, our packaging is eco-friendly! We are pleased to announce that all our cardboard and plastic packaging is now 100% recyclable. So, whenever you receive a product from us, you can recycle the packaging that it arrives in. You can read more about this here.

Our View on Plastic

Plastic has been important for some time where the material offers strength, durability, and is lightweight. Over the coming years, we aim to increase the use of recycled material, and find alternatives where possible.

Our View on Rubber

Rubber is also a naturally sourced material and therefore renewable. It has many beneficial characteristics from flexibility to durability and is highly suited to use in floor mats that need to be both comfortable and hardwearing.

Research and development

COBA continually reassesses its products and its processes to find ways of reducing its overall environmental impact to make it a more sustainable business, and we’re excited about what the future holds.
