All Skagerak furniture is realised according to the motto "Design for generations". This means, above all, an emphasis on a long service life of the products. The Danish manufacturer follows the philosophy that durable products are valuable in many ways - the level of enjoyment, in terms of economic aspects and of course for the environment. With high-quality furniture the procurement of raw materials, the transport, packaging and disposal are naturally reduced on account of the long service life and thereby the environment is sustainably protected. Sustainability and quality go hand in hand with the furniture of Skagerak. And of course, products that remain beautiful and functional for years and for which generations have their joy, are also more cost-effective in the long term. Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is also a top priority at Skagerak, with the aim of acting as responsibly as possible in every step of the business. Social as well as ecological aspects are equally important to take responsibility for the future of our society and the environment; among other things, Skagerak formulates a number of zero-tolerance points, which must be fulfilled in every area of the company and its suppliers: Forced and child labour are banned, employees must be treated with dignity, and harmful and dangerous working conditions must always be avoided. The Scandinavian manufacturer also takes responsibility for wood procurement and pays special attention to sustainable forest management. For example, Skagerak supports the Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC™), a non-profit international organization that certifies sustainably sourced wood and paper.
