These days, the world is focused on sustainability and the environment, and rightly so, with the impact of business on the environment, it’s crucial that we’re all more conscious about our carbon footprint.
One of our main brands, Natuzzi has made it their goal to be as sustainable as possible, with a focus of improving wherever they can. Designer doesn’t have to be non-sustainable, below are some of the ways Natuzzi are fighting damaging the environment:
Natuzzi use wood that is only sourced from renewable forests, meaning that deforestation is minimised by planting new trees. Alongside this, the wood is treated in compliance with EU regulations, meaning no formaldehyde and zero toxicity.
Using their own tannery, the craftsmen behind the construction of the sofas select and tan the leathers themselves, which enables them to keep a close eye on production, and ensures that the strict EU policies are adhered to at all times. The leather itself is chosen from livestock that are used for beef, minimising the waste of by-products. Water wastage has been eradicated at the tannery by recycling what is used.
All filling and packaging used in Natuzzis’ products are free of freon and other harmful agents, drastically reducing any damage to the environment. Solar panels also adorn the top of Natuzzi plants and offices, which in itself alone has reduced their carbon footprint by approximately 3400 tonnes annually.
It’s plain to see why Natuzzi are at the forefront of sustainability and eco- awareness, Pasquale Natuzzi, founder of Natuzzi believes strongly in being environmentally conscious:
“Our commitment for sustainable development is not only a responsibility, but also an opportunity. It expresses a forward-looking investment which is fundamental for every company’s continuity. Renewable energies are also an opportunity to compete keeping the operating costs low. Combining the sustainable development with the competition is a challenge that our company wants to carry on in order to improve the quality of life in the territory”
