Our activities as a company affect both people and the environment. We want to take full responsibility for our actions and make conscious decisions to achieve a good balance between People, Planet and Profit. By doing so, we and future generations have a bright future to look forward to. It is for this reason we have adopted CSR as one of our strategic elements. With our CSR policy, we aim to achieve the right balance between People, Planet and Profit.
Carbon neutral manufacturing
The results of our efforts in the field of sustainability are greatly noticeable. For instance, in April 2017 we implemented a carbon neutral manufacturing process. CO2 reduction has been attained by generating energy with the help of solar panels, converting waste products such as sawdust into energy, and using eco-friendly transportation methods.
The minimal CO2 emissions that remain, we mitigate with a number of climate friendly projects and activities such as the Smart Forest Bolivia project via the organisation ‘Trees for All’. Through this project, local farmers are trained in new methods of agriculture and livestock breeding. This initiative protects existing rainforest, and contributes to the expansion of the rainforest through the application of so-called ecological corridors. Due to our contribution to this and several other sustainable projects, we can officially call ourselves carbon neutral.
In addition to our carbon neutral manufacturing process, we aim to produce a sustainable product. Kitchens are largely built up out of wood and wood-related products. On your request, we are able to provide you with FSC®-products. This allows us to ensure that all of our wood comes from sustainably governed forests. FSC® wood is ecologically produced according to the rules and guidelines published by the Forest Stewardship Council®.
