Climate action

Sustainability goals:

Sustainable production

Nine years ago, we became the first climate-neutral outdoor furniture manufacturer in the world, and we have set ourselves a target of zero climate gas emissions. Between 2014 and 2016, we cut our CO2 emissions by nearly 40% in relation to production value. We still generate climate gas emissions equivalent to 2,500 cars a year, however. We compensate for this by funding rainforest conservation in Papua New Guinea.
