Flokk about sustainability

FLOKK REGARDING SUSTAINABILITY

Flokk is the market leader in the design, development and production of workplace furniture in Europe. We are the product owner of product brands HÅG, Offecct, Giroflex, RH, Profim, 9to5 Seating, BMA, RBM and Malmstolen. About 2500 employees work together to realize the vision of our company: Inspire great work.

In Flokk, we understand better than anyone else does that people want to work well and feel well. We deeply believe it is possible. Moreover, we know how to make it happen! Thanks to our seating solutions we are able to create inspiring, sustainable and friendly workplaces. This is our contribution to the well-being of people – and of businesses. In other words: “we want to make the world a better place to sit”.

 

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are Flokk’s most important cornerstones next to quality, ergonomics and functional design. Flokk has 40 years' history of a structured focus on the environment, enabling us to be leaders in the development of sustainable furniture. We believe in a holistic approach that goes way beyond the materials we use.

 

Even before the arrival of our first sustainability manager in 1990, which was also the first in our industry, sustainability was high on our agenda. With relentless effort and passion, we worked on sustainable innovation, with which Flokk set an example in de chair industry. Our environmental achievements were even valued as one of the “101 solutions to climate change” at the environmental conference for all world leaders in Copenhagen in 2009. We have a mission we continuously strive to accomplish – to discover and create the designs of furniture that improve people’s well-being and performance. 

 

Flokk has an evidence-based policy: Flokk is the first chair manufacturer in the world to get certification according for example EMAS, ISO14001, ISO14025/EPD, Nordic Swan, Cradle to Cradle, Mobelfakta and Greenguard (proof that the chair does not shed harmful substances in the work environment, conform WELL standard). Flokk uses the SA8000 Code of Conduct (responsibility in the entire chain for sustainable entrepreneurship) for all her suppliers, has green EL certificates and FIRA verification level Bronze and received the prestigious Epro Award for “Best recycled Plastic Product” in 2015. During the manufacturing process, we only use wind, waterpower, and the C2C powder coating gets 100% recycled. A BOM (Bill of materials) is available for all of our products.
