One of our environmentally certified suppliers
We know where our raw materials come from
A sheep obviously cannot be environmentally certified. But in assuming full responsibility for our environmental efforts, we have to know how our suppliers work and where materials come from. That’s why we make such tough demands on them. For example, chair upholstery must not contain any undesired chemicals. This is where sheep come in. For as usual, nature is smarter than chemistry – wool is naturally flame resistant, which is why we use it as far as possible. But we don’t only make demands, we also encourage environmental efforts by awarding the "Kinnarps Environment Prize" to deserving suppliers.
"Being a Kinnarps supplier acts as an internal quality control for us. By meeting their requirements, we maintain high quality. And we do just that."
