Innovate, think, and above all, act sustainably.
For us, sustainable production and circular design is not just something of recent times. We have been working on this for years and have come up with a number of solutions. These solutions are based on a number of fundamental, sustainable choices. We explain these choices below. In addition, our videoseries “Sustainable Solutions by Vepa” shows how we innovate, think, and above all, act sustainably.
We proudly present the Social & sustainable development report of the Fair Furniture Group. We aspire to be a leader in sustainable, circular and social business and the report therefore focuses on people, society and the planet. After all, fair to people, society and the planet is the basis on which the Fair Furniture Group wants to contribute to a new future-proof economy.
Vepa is the only manufacturer of office and project furniture whose products are 100% made in Holland. This provides control over quality, ensures good working conditions and results in a CO2 reduction of up to 70%.
Our production locations are close to the customer and raw materials are always from our region. Whenever possible, we choose Dutch suppliers.
Vepa is firmly en route to a waste-free factory. Optimisation programmes and smart programming ensure that we use our raw materials as efficiently as possible. We have devised sustainable solutions for the residual material that remains.
For example, we use our wood residues for new benches, our textile waste is reused in acoustic walls and we turn our steel waste into chair frames.
Together we create new solutions for existing products and materials. It is often no longer a question of whether, but more a question of how we can help organisations with their circular design.
Every situation is unique, so for every project we determine the sustainable opportunities and circular possibilities. We create various scenarios and of course include the consequences of the choices made in our proposal.
We would like to close the circle and make all our product chains circular. This means that we do not produce waste and reuse products and materials as much as possible.
Every project requires a custom approach. Office and project designers, consultants, housing agencies or architects are enlisted to take on part of the circular design process.
We involve end users such as companies, associations, governments and educational institutions as much as possible in our sustainable ideas and solutions. Together we stand strong!
