Sustainability

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.

It is this special approach that has made us decide to become Cradle to Cradle Certified™. In other words, in the long term we want to contribute positively rather than contribute less negatively.

Each stage of production of aluminium profiles has been reviewed and documented in relation to the set requirements. We were certified to Bronze achievement level in 2018. The certification also obligates us to continue to work to improve our production, so that we can document progress when we undergo re-certification every other year.

A sustainable working environment is another though not completely separate matter. We want our employees to work in a healthy working environment, which through development and training contributes positively to their professionalism. We give our employees the option to develop and support both their physical and mental health and well-being.

With our business procedures we want to show that sustainability is a natural part of a visionary company. Not because it generates more turnover but because it is the right thing to do.
