CO₂-reduction and -compensation

For Sedus, sustainable management means living a holistic approach that protects the foundations for tomorrow's life, today. In order to maintain an environmentally intact world, environmental protection and resource conservation are indispensable – from the choice of materials for sustainable office furniture to processing and packaging to recycling.

The objective has been clearly set: By 2025, Sedus aims to be CO₂ neutral at its administrative and production sites.

To achieve this, Sedus has already implemented a number of sustainability measures, e.g:
  • Products produced using 100% green electricity
  • Continuous optimisation of material and energy efficiency, e.g due to a change of dust protection film
  • Investment in a form fleece production facility enables PET with optimum cutting to size and a high recycling rate thanks to the addition of "bottle flakes"
  • CNC-controlled textile and leather cutting table, to keep the amount of waste low
  • Temperature reduction in powder coating
  • Conversion to LED lighting in the assembly hall
  • Small packing dimensions thanks to partially assembled delivery and modular packaging concept
  • New energy concept at the Dogern site with a PV system, heat pumps and an improved heating network

Corporate Carbon Footprint

The carbon footprint, also called CO₂ footprint or CO₂ balance, represents the total amount of greenhouse gas emissions (measured in CO₂ equivalent) caused, directly and indirectly, by the company's activities.

The CCF at Sedus totalled 27,591 t CO₂ in 2022. By disclosing its CCF, Sedus creates transparency for customers, partners and employees. Sedus reports its corporate carbon footprint (CCF) according to the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol in three scopes:

direct emissions

indirect emissions from purchased energy

indirect emissions within the value chain

Sedus energy policy

Sedus is committed to reducing energy consumption in the long term and increasing energy efficiency in a continuous improvement process. To achieve this, in 2012 the company introduced an energy management system in accordance with DIN ISO 50001. Sedus regularly checks that:

  • the necessary financial and structural requirements are met
  • all employees are integrated into the implementation and execution of the energy management system and responsibilities are defined
  • relevant legal obligations and other requirements are taken into account
  • energy aspects and energy data are regularly collected and reviewed
  • energy efficiency programmes are properly implemented and executed
  • the results are measured and verified by means of a regular audit
  • the procurement and design of energy-efficient processes, products and services is supported


As a globally networked company, Sedus sets high standards and has them verified by external organisations.
