Andreu World – LEVEL 3 certification for all products
Andreu World is one of the first furniture companies in Europe to achieve LEVEL 3® certification for its entire catalogue of designs, the highest international standard that a product can achieve.
When Andreu World talks about sustainable furniture, they ask themselves how far its environmental characteristics and health properties go. What materials are used? What are the processes involved in its manufacturing? Is the health and well-being of people taken into account?
LEVEL® analyzes each product’s material composition and recyclability, carbon footprint, water footprint, life cycle assessment, the chemical products used, as well as its ecological and human health impacts. LEVEL® 3 certification provides access to LEED Platinum, the highest level for certifying sustainable buildings internationally.
Andreu World’s unique blend of contemporary design and traditional craftsmanship make them a popular choice for those who value both style and functionality in their furniture. Additionally, Andreu World’s focus on ergonomics and comfort ensures that their furniture is not only visually appealing but also comfortable and practical for everyday use.
Steelcase Series 1: Carbon Neutral
The importance of carbon neutral products lies in their ability to reduce the carbon footprint and mitigate the negative impact of greenhouse gas emissions on the environment. By achieving carbon neutrality, products can help combat climate change and promote sustainability. With the increasing global concern for environmental preservation, carbon neutral products are becoming increasingly popular and essential for businesses and individuals to reduce their environmental impact and contribute to a greener future.
Steelcase Series 1 with CarbonNeutral product certification includes the same design, ergonomics and quality engineered in the existing Steelcase Series 1 task chair with the added benefit of having its carbon footprint offset for organizations seeking more environmentally-friendly options.
Carbon emissions are measured, calculated and verified by a third party across every stage of the chair’s life cycle – offsetting 100% of emissions through projects like forest management, renewable energy, cleaner cooking and electric transportation. These projects – supported by Steelcase through a partnership with Climate Impact Partners – help remove and avoid pollution in environments around the world.
