The fact that the furniture industry has an impact on the global environment is beyond dispute. The question now is how it can be reduced. Lammhults’ Tilda Lagerqvist is committed to make a change and contribute to a sustainable future.
Corporate Social Responsibility to its point. For Lammhults, environmental sustainability goes hand in hand with social and financial factors.
Naturally, there is a strong focus on green challenges connected to climate changes, but according to Tilda that don’t exclude social issues. On the contrary, the relationship between environmental and social responsibility is close. The choice of transportation and logistics gives an illustrative example. The latest eco-labelling takes product origins into greater consideration and adds distance and working conditions to the calculation.
Recycle, re-use and repair – Lammhults follow the evolution towards a circular economy.
For the moment, Tilda’s daily work centres on material recycling. The last years, Lammhults has developed its manufacturing process, and made it more effective and optimised. Not least in how good they use raw materials and avoid waste. The next step is to increase the incoming recycled material.
A chair made of recycled plastic is not only good for the environment, it is also a valuable asset in the marketing. Tilda points out how important it is to get it right from the start; to raise the relevant questions in the product development. It’s all about seeing the full product lifecycle of a new product.
Lammhults’ products are known for their timeless design and high quality. Advantages that also make a difference in the environmental work. Tilda and her team look into how they can make repairs and restoration part of the concept. The original values of Lammhults are equally important in the upcoming circular economy. Quality never goes out of style.
