Learn about our approach to sustainability
furnipart’s drive to attain sustainable production seriously got underway in 2018. We decided we needed to use an external body that was highly credible which had an international reputation and would manage the process of documenting our results – we chose the non-profit Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute, which is represented in Denmark by Vugge til Vugge Aps.
Vugge til Vugge ApS is a Cradle to Cradle accredited assessor and they assist us by assessing and documenting the sustainability of our production. They work on the basis of a high level of screening and use an internationally recognised standard – Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Product Standard. We believe this is the most serious approach.
Cradle to Cradle™ has a different approach to design and production, because instead of the old thinking that products should be sustainable from cradle to grave, they assess our products on the basis of their ability to be used safely in a new lifecycle when they can no longer be used for their original purpose.
