Certificates & partnerships

Acting sustainable, together with each other

Accounting for the climate, the people and the environment, is what it is all about. Ahrend takes responsibility for design and production processes by supporting this with various sustainability certificates.

Sustainable wood

Ahrend only uses wood from sustainable managed forests. Our melamine tops are PEFC certified as standard, but also available in FSC wood. 

Sustainable products

Fully recyclable and healthy materials, produced in a safe work environment with renewable energy. We can guarantee this with our Cradle to Cradle certificates.

Sustainable organisation

Applying ISO 26000 leads to a structured CSR policy that comprises  of all aspects necessary for an integral sustainability. The seven principles of ISO 26000 are the guidelines for the activities and decision-making process. These principles are supported by VN Global Compact.

Sustainable partnerships

MVO Nederland

Ahrend shares her knowledge with various parties and develops sustainable solutions with those parties. That’s why we are a member of MVO Nederland. 

Cradle to Cradle Café

Together with Desso and Mosa, four times a year we organise the Cradle to Cradle Café. These companies develop and produce their products according to the Cradle to Cradle principles. Jointly we are working on further spreading the Cradle to Cradle philosophy. Cradle to Cradle Cafés are mini seminars in which current and various topics in the field of Cradle to Cradle and sustainability are discussed by various inspired speakers.

You are welcome to attend a Cradle to Cradle Café yourself. Please see the events page for the first Cradle to Cradle Café.
