That the products can be used by everyone is an especially important sustainability requirement for us who provide interior design for public environments.
Everyone in society must have an equal and unhindered opportunity to both express and assimilate information. It's a democratic issue.
That we comply with these requirements and principles is checked at recurring third-party certifications.
We have developed our own scoring system to assess, at product level, how easy it is to change functional units, how much of the material included is recycled or recyclable, has a known origin, how far away from us it was manufactured and what proportion of materials with low environmental impact it consists of. Social responsibility is also included in this system, and it is based on constantly rolling supplier assessments. This is pending the corresponding scoring system in an Ecodesign Directive from the EU in this product group.
