100% sustainable certified wood
Forests should be for all and all generations to come. By committing to using 100% sustainable certified wood we help promote responsible forestry. That means that the wood comes from either sustainable forests or other responsible sources. Our first goal was to have our own factories FSC™-certified (FSC-C132796). That was achieved in 2022. Our next goal is to use sustainable certified wood in all our products containing wood by 2025.
Packaging material is important. We need to make sure that our furniture is well protected during transport. However, we do believe that we can reduce our environmental impact with responsible packaging. This means that we will minimise our packaging material consumption and still protect our furniture. We will strive to use recycled and/or recyclable materials and look for alternatives for some of the materials we use today.
Sustainable supplier management system
We have always taken our responsibility seriously and have been a member of amfori for years. Now we will implement the amfori BEPI platform across our supplier portfolio. Doing this will give us a better understanding of the environmental impact embedded in our supply chain operations. The BEPI platform is managing environmental issues and gives us the information we need to act and ultimately map the CO2e in our Supply Chain.
We want to use responsible fabrics and our goal is to have our range of fabrics OEKO-TEX® certified. OEKO-TEX® textiles are tested for more than 300 different substances that are harmful to our health and the environment. In March 2022, 52 % of our fabrics were already OEKO-TEX® certified, but we are working to get our entire range of fabrics certified. In addition, we want to ensure that a greater share of our fabric assortment is sustainable certified. For example, we have introduced our Latina fabric made from recycled PET plastic bottles and is GRS certified.
