At TAKT we believe in a multi-pronged approach to fully climate compensated our products.
- We establish transparency to the carbon footprint during the full life cycle of each of our product – from materials, production, transport, use and disposal. Our carbon footprint calculation is externally verified.
- We continually work to reduce the carbon footprint across all parts of the life cycle.
- We offset the remaining carbon footprint by investing in activities that directly remove carbon from the atmosphere (not quotas and not indirect emission reductions).
By consistently only using wood from sustainably managed forests (i.e., FSC certified), we have reduced CO2e impact from our wooden materials by 40%.
By moving away from traditional Poly Urethane lacquer to water based lacquers and oils, we have reduced the lifetime CO2e impact of our surface treatment by 48% (even including the impact from later retreating your furniture with oil after years of use).
By optimizing our recycled cardboard and flat-packing our furniture, we have both reduced damage during transport and reduced the CO2e impact of the packaging materials by 26%.
By flat-packing our furniture we have reduced carbon emissions during transport by 56%.
Målbar has developed a powerful tool with high user-friendliness. In addition to the specific CO2e calculations, it is possible to compare the climate profile of products, and related comparisons with everyday topics are included.
