At Bernh. Pedersen & Søn we believe that we have an important role to play in addressing the environmental challenges faced by the modern world. Today, sustainability is fundamental to good design, and responsible material sourcing forms a key chapter in any product’s story.
The longer the usable life of a product, the more environmentally friendly it is. Bernh. Pedersen & Søn focuses on developing long-lasting products that minimise the environmental impact.
Through transparent sourcing and manufacture, Bernh. Pedersen & Søn take the environmental aspect seriously by improving all stages of production – from the raw materials to packaging, reducing energy consumption and optimizing the working environment.
We optimise the use of sustainable materials such as recycled materials, FSC-certified wood and water-based surface treatments. We want to know the origin of our raw timber, leather and textiles, and ensure that our suppliers have documented environmental management systems in place. We try to keep our furniture miles to a minimum by opting for local suppliers and our aim is that all our packaging is made entirely from recyclable, renewable materials.
The United Nations’ Global Goals and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), are a universal call to action on the challenges the world is confronted with now, and which are advancing at an alarming rate. Global life-changing goals which Bernh. Pedersen & Søn is committed to pursue.
