Flokk - Our philosophy - Sustainability

Sustainability

"When it comes to task chairs, no manufacturer takes the environmental effects of its materials and processes more seriously than Flokk.

Sustainability



As a company and a manufacturer of high- end office seating, we are acting now. Globally, perhaps the difference we are making today is modest. But our mission - as our products, name and philosophy grow increasingly familiar in the market - will help seed other initiatives and inspire others to change their behaviour."

Atle Thiis-Messel, Vice President Environment

Our motto is ‘different and better’, which means we work with innovative new products inspired by health and the environment.

Pioneer in sustainability

Flokk’s quality standards are high. Products are tested in accordance with a number of international quality standards for functionality, dimensions, finish and durability. Flokk is also resolved to pioneer a sustainable development. Every Flokk product is designed and manufactured according to a concept we created in the 1990s that is still valid today.

We call it 5III, and it’s about 5 circular design principles that come together to create one sustainable lifecycle.

  1. Low weight: building better products with fewer resources
  2. Fewer components: makes smarter functions and manufacture easier
  3. Right choice of materials: we choose recycled and recyclable sources, avoiding hazardous materials, always
  4. Long lifespan: we build our furniture to last
  5. Designed for disassembly: our products can be repaired, reused and recycled, really easily

Together these principles help us look after our three focus areas on the environment:

  1. Climate: reducing our carbon footprint and energy consumption
  2. Resources: taking less from our planet and minimise our waste
  3. Health: keeping people and the planet safer

In 2017, we bought over 600 tonnes of recycled plastics, with ambitions to increase this every year. We also get over 90% of our energy from renewable sources but our goal is to reach 100% over the next few years, and we are proud to say our chairs have one of the lowest carbon footprints in the industry.
