Sustainable office furniture since 1871

What does it mean to do business and work sustainably? What are the characteristics of sustainable production? For Sedus, it means a holistic approach; to protect the foundations of tomorrow, today. Environmental protection and resource conservation are essential, in order to maintain an environmentally intact world. This ranges from the choice of materials used to make sustainable office furniture through processing and packaging to recycling.

The number of awards Sedus has won show that sustainability is a top priority for us. This extends from Christof Stoll being voted Eco Manager of the Year in 1993 to the Eco Audit in compliance with the EU standard in 1995. Sedus was also the world's first office furniture manufacturer to have received the EMAS III certification in 2010. Our next objective has also been clearly set: Sedus aims to be CO2 neutral by 2025.

The carbon footprint, also called CO2 balance, represents the total amount of greenhouse gas emissions (measured in CO2 equivalent) caused, directly and indirectly, by the company’s activities. Sedus reports its corporate carbon footprint (CCF) according to the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol in three scopes.

Sedus Green Codex – the circular economy at Sedus

The development, manufacturing and marketing of Sedus products follow the Sedus Green Code – we are transparent and sustainable at all times. The individual stages of the process are by no means linear; they are an integral part of a well thought-out circular economy.
