Here at Crest we recognise the importance of looking after our planet and we are very happy to say that our partners feel the same way.
Arktura is a carbon-neutral company. Manufacturing in Los Angeles and Amsterdam and shipping products globally, they take significant steps to care for the world in which we live. They participate in programs that support reforestation, clean power, and environmental conservation, and are actively expanding their involvement in these global efforts, now and into the future.
Arktura also 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.
Artifort is part of the Lande Group, and believes in high-quality, durable design. This is reflected in the long life-cycle of almost all of their models.
Re-upholstering Artifort models is a development that they encourage. The re-upholstering is done at their own workshop in Lanaken.
They regard recycling and limiting waste as a matter of course. Waste is sorted and disposed of in accordance with legal regulations. Where possible, waste is re-used or sent for recycling. Any surplus furniture, for whatever reason, is sold through other channels and is not disposed of as waste.
Having their own transport fleet benefits the delivery time of products and also the environment. They constantly plan the most efficient routes and their trucks more than conform to current environmental requirements. This also means that the drivers know all the ins and outs of transporting furniture. Excessive protection is not needed and used packaging materials are returned and reused. This not only means less packaging material but also that the available space in the truck is used more efficiently.
Lammhults work with timeless designs of the highest quality to ensure the longest product life. In order to reduce the consumption of resources and lessen their environmental impact they start working with these topics early in the product development process. Development of new products shall be characterized by a circular approach and be designed to enable the reuse and recycling of materials. Furthermore, the products they design should, to the maximum extent possible, be produced from materials that are recycled and can be recycled. In parallel they work continuously to adapt the existing product range to this design strategy.
|Lammhults certify selected volume products according to the Nordic Ecolabel,
the toughest eco-labelling system in the industry.
Lammhults’ environmental work shall be conducted in a long-term and preventative way and contribute to the sustainable development of our surroundings. This should be done by keeping house of both renewable and finite raw materials as well as energy. Furthermore, all environmental impact in the form of, for example, pollutant emissions and waste must be minimized. Their goal is not only to meet the authorities’ minimum requirements, but with a good margin, as far as possible, exceed set requirements.
