Sustainability

We continually aim to minimise our impact on our environment throughout our business from manufacture to delivery. Wherever possible we source materials from the UK and fully investigate their environmental credentials to ensure they meet our strict standards. For example;

All standard fabrics used for our upholstery are manufactured using either recycled raw materials, renewable and compostable fibre types, or high content wool fabrics which are climate neutral through CO2 offsets.

Our products are carefully wrapped in re-usable blankets for delivery to our customers to limit packaging and waste and we carefully plan our delivery routes to minimise our fuel usage and emissions.

All our board material is low or formaldehyde free and all timber used in our processes is FSC or PEFC certified, from sustainably managed forests. In July 2012 EME attained accreditation to the FSC and PEFC Certification schemes and are audited by Third Party assessor BM Trada on an annual basis.

These are just some of our environmental initiatives; further information is available in our Environmental Policy. A copy can be downloaded here
