We all understand that it is our duty to minimise our impact on the world we live in.
But we believe that too many companies pay lip service to the concept of sustainability using carbon offsets. Carbon offsets do not effectively reduce climate change, they simply shift the blame.
We believe that direct carbon dioxide removal, renewable energy, energy efficiency and carbon sequestration are key to environmental responsibility and to achieve this as a company we have instigated a set of practical sustainability initiatives. We are committed to carbon net zero by 2030.
We are committed to designing for circularity, using recycled, recyclable, reclaimed or refurbished materials whenever and wherever possible.
For example: we have created innovative products incorporating recycled waste for curtains and table tops; we offer recycle wood options, and we only ever use FSC timber and EU sourced steel.
We are putting our own house in order by reducing our energy and water consumption. We have committed to installing solar panels and the most energy-efficient lighting.
We understand that even small things matter, so all our showrooms and events use only sustainably sourced materials, from reusable cups to certified chocolate.

We are working to reduce reliance on airfreight. Air freight has 84 times the footprint of transport by ocean so we are improving processes with our entire supply chain to reduce our air freight mileage.
In order to address ground delivery emissions, our mainland European operations utilise a batched delivery strategy.
During the pandemic we learned that we can travel less whilst managing an efficient business and have significantly reduced our corporate travel.
All staff vehicles will be electric by 2025.
