Economy doesn’t work without ecology.
In line with this precept, next125’s key focus throughout the production and supply chain is on protecting nature and maintaining an ecological balance. As an environmentally-aware, nature-loving manufacturer, reducing our CO2 emissions is a matter that is very close to our hearts.
The basis for a climate neutral furniture manufacturer is the carbon footprint. To receive certification as a climate-neutral furniture manufacturer, the manufacturer is required to calculate its "footprint" every year on the basis of 3 scopes. This footprint is made up of direct and indirect greenhouse gas emissions. The calculated carbon footprint is compensated for by purchasing (redeeming) high-quality international climate protection certificates that meet the Gold Standard, the VCS Standard or the Clean Development Mechanism. As Schüller has eliminated all CO2 emissions of the 3 scopes, the company has been awarded the highest level of "Climate Neutral Furniture Manufacturer".
Our company's certification with the PEFC logo is symbolic of our commitment to the environment and the responsible use of wood as an indispensable raw material. PEFC is an acronym for "Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes". The displayed PEFC label is traceable confirmation that the woods and wooden materials used originate from ecologically, economically and socially sustainably managed forests and controlled sources. The obligation to regularly provide proof continuously ensures adherence to the PEFC Chain of Custody.
Heat generation through the
use of waste wood
“Where wood is chopped splinters must fall“, a saying goes. This is exactly what happens in producing kitchens – where waste wood is left in abundance. What more obvious than to turn it into energy rather than leave it as waste. This way, by burning our waste wood in a thermally cleaned manner, we generate the heating energy for the entire company. This is a step towards the future, both ecologically and economically.
Environmentally sound in
From Germany to France, Spain, the UK, Benelux and other countries ... Anyone, like us, covering thousands upon thousands of miles across Europe bears a responsibility. To meet this responsibility, Schüller has for years been investing in an increasingly eco-friendly and fuel-saving fleet of trucks, currently numbering 63. This makes the Euro 6 standard our contribution to making the air cleaner. Today and in the future.
We have concluded a disposal contract with a recycling management company which ensures that registered packages will be recycled and will fulfil all requirements of the packaging ordinance. This guarantees that all packaging materials are manufactured and disposed of via environmentally sound methods.
