Good design is sustainable
Our design is functional, sustainable and timeless. Good design is sustainable, both in terms of the environment but also sustainable in terms of long lasting products, that you want to keep for a lifetime. Engelbrechts seeks to achieve this objective through sound development for the entire company and achieve a purposeful development and production of the products that we bring to market.
Principally, we support this goal by identifying and developing long-term durable design and continuing the long held fight with disposable furniture.
Engelbrechts supports FN’s Global Compact as well as the principles that are based here.
Engelbrechts utilizes the most efficient method of production, taking the environment into account and striving to use clean technology, where it’s economically and technically possible. We also seek to support and promote, where possible, the use of clean technology.
Engelbrechts A/S has changed the chrome on all frames in the CHAIRIK range from traditional chrome (CrO6) to a more environmentally friendly chrome (CrO3). Further, the POISE shelving system is made of 50 % recycled ABS plastic.
We engage in a close dialogue and collaboration with our subcontractors and they must share our environmental focus. Hence, they should comply with:
- ISO 14001 for environmental management
- FSC for responsibly managed materials
