Our commitment to maintaining and improving our Environmental Management System

We aim to meet all environmental compliance obligations and client requirements.

We are committed to maintaining and improving the effectiveness of our Environmental Management System, licence number CEM 20596, to the requirements of the international standard AS/NZS ISO 14001. We aim to meet all environmental compliance obligations and client requirements. Through procurement processes, we have access to environmentally friendly products and service options for sustainability. For activities in our control, we shall prevent environmental damage to air, land, water, flora, fauna, property and cultural heritage, including noise reduction and waste management controls. Wherever reasonably practicable, we shall reduce, reuse and recycle our products, services, packaging and waste. We shall work with clients, authorities and other interested parties to continue to eliminate, reduce or substitute products, lower the environmental impacts and offer products approved by both GECA and AFRDI.

“We shall work with clients, authorities and other interested parties to continue to eliminate, reduce or substitute products, lower the environmental impacts and offer products approved by both GECA and AFRDI.”

We are committed to contributing to social and environmental wellbeing.

We will continue to develop products which will be certified by GECA and AFRDI Standard 150 enabling maximum Green Star ratings. We are committed to contributing to social and environmental wellbeing by working with the industry in designing and supplying furniture that:

  • Increases the demand for and value given to human skill;
  • Is highly functional and well made;
  • Has a satisfying and enduring aesthetic;
  • Minimises its use of materials and energy;
  • Avoids hazardous materials and processes;
  • Meets current requirements and is versatile enough to meet changing needs.

For timber components, we use material sourced from sustainable regrowth plantations with FSC certification, where possible. The furniture industry is continuing to develop products using recycling materials with particular focus on:

CFC-free foam

Biodegradable wool fabric

Water based glues (not chemical)

Fabrics that are manufactured from recycled materials

Our continued product development includes life-cycle assessment and product stewardship.
