GUT enhances user- and environmental friendliness through the entire life-cycle of carpet, from production to installation, from usage to recycling.

Since the early 90's, the European carpet industry has taken the lead by creating GUT and by continuously raising its environmental standards. GUT members in the European carpet industry are committed to act in an environmentally responsible way. They have signed "a contract with the environment."

In cooperation with officially recognised test houses across Europe, GUT continuously tests products against the highest standards. What's more, GUT promotes environmentally friendly solutions for carpet installation as well as recycling projects. GUT disseminates objective information on these issues.


This is summarized in our slogan:
"Carpets tested for a better living environment"
GUT: carpets tested for a better living environment
