A sustainable way of specifying

Here at Crest we are very aware of our responsibilities with regards to looking after the environment. We endeavour to always specify the most sustainable products available in our portfolio, and we are very happy to say that our long-standing partnerships with some of the most iconic furniture manufacturers in Europe reflect these beliefs.

Lammhults

  • Lammhults knows that design is ultimately about creating values that last.
  • Their furniture endures the use of generation after generation. It is designed with care and constructed from reliable materials by skilled craftsmen. This allows it to age with dignity.
  • A product that is sustainable is not unbreakable. But just because something breaks or is worn out doesn’t mean it need to be thrown away, not if it can be mended. To prolong the life course of their furniture, Lammhults offer spare parts and restoration through their RE:USE program.
  • As a sustainable company, Lammhults act responsibly not only towards the environment, but also towards their clients, collaborators, and all the people working at Lammhults.
  • Their ambition is to use design to create maximum of value, for people and their environments, and at the same time use a minimum of our valuable natural resources.
  • Lammhults is certified according to ISO 14001 since 1998 and ISO 9001 since 2012 and continues to work with environmental issues to ensure the least possible environmental impact from all their processes. In 2012 Lammhults also received the OHSAS 18001- certificate ensuring an occupational health and safety management system that fulfils the requirements of OHSAS 18001:2007. In December 2020, OHSAS 18001 turned into ISO 45001.
  • They work actively with the Swedish furniture industry performance certification system, Möbelfakta, with an ever-increasing number of certified products. A piece of Lammhults furniture that lives up to the requirements of Möbelfakta has undergone extensive quality tests, is produced according to ethical guidelines, and has been approved according to environmental requirements. Möbelfakta is a guarantee of the highest quality. Lammhults’ goal is to be able to certify all their products according to Möbelfakta.
  • They also certify selected volume products according to the Nordic Ecolabel, which is the toughest eco-labelling system in the industry. Their strategy of certifying primarily their volume products means that they reach the greatest positive effect.
  • An EPD (Environmental Product Declaration) is available for most Lammhults products – example.

Artifort

  • Artifort wishes to minimize the environmental impact of its activities, products and services. Future generations depend on it, and this is very important to them as a family business. The sustainable production of the Artifort is based on the following pillars:
    • Reuse and re-upholstery
    • Sustainable materials and products
    • Limit CO2 emissions
    • Certified suppliers
    • ISO 14001
    • ISO 9001
  • In the production of its furniture, Artifort uses as many sustainable materials as possible and places high demands on these materials. Fabrics with the EU Ecolabel or the Ökotex standard 100 label, PEFC or FSC certified wood and powder coating instead of chrome are some examples.
  • Producing in a sustainable way starts with purchasing the right sustainable materials. Only high-quality sustainable materials find their way to Artifort. They only purchase these sustainable materials from certified suppliers.
  • Every Artifort product has an eco product passport that displays the material composition with weight percentages of the product. Furthermore, it displays sustainable pillars and certificates that apply to the specific product. The Artifort eco material passport contains:
    • material composition with weight percentages.
    • certificates
    • reuse waste materials and re-upholstery policy
    • packaging and logistic
    • warranty.

“We believe that it is important to make our contribution to a sustainable world. The quality of Artifort furniture is such that is lasts a lifetime, so that it can be passed on from generation to generation”

They participate in programs that support reforestation, clean power, and environmental conservation. They are actively expanding their involvement in these global efforts, now and into the future.
  • True innovation starts with sustainable practices. Arktura take pride in creating products that incorporate smart material sourcing and efficient processing. All their materials have a high proportion of recycled content and can be processed for recycling.
