Responsibility is a thing with a lot of old and something new. It is largely traditional common sense that we have always tended to use. Making things long-lasting. Avoiding wastage and if there is any, make use of it elsewhere. Making objects usable and not useless. Using wood and planting new trees. Respecting nature so that it will last for future generations as well. However, in addition to traditional common sense, responsibility is, of course, also new thinking and new necessary means, such as measuring your carbon footprint and offsetting it and much more.
Read below more about how we approach this important issue.
Our responsibility consists of many genuine actions, which are only part of the whole picture. In addition to our actions, we want to be fully transparent about the entire life cycle of the product.
We calculate the climate impact of all our products.
In the process, we learn what factors contribute to the impact and how we can reduce and offset the residual impact.
We offset the climate impact of all our products, so the products are carbon neutral. Offsetting is done by planting trees with reliable and local partners in our local forests.
Our main raw material is wood. It has many features that support responsibility. In the forest, carbon is stored in trees and it will continue to be locked in the furniture made from wood - the longer-lasting the furniture the longer the sequestration.
Everything starts with design, and it always includes choices. Choices are already made at the beginning of the design process. The starting point may be, for example, waste pieces from a larger product. Utilizing these will result in products with almost zero carbon footprint from the material perspective.
