At Krost, we are committed to reducing our impact on the environment. We know that office furniture can leave a big footprint and we see it as our responsibility to minimise that footprint as much as possible.
- We use environmentally friendly materials
Many of our products use recycled and recyclable materials such as steel or ABS plastic and are all packaged in recyclable cardboard or plastic. Our workstation panels are all upholstered with water-based glues that are environmentally safe, solvent free and with no emission concerns. Our melamine and veneer are manufactured with low formaldehyde emissions, and comply with Australia E1 standards. Wherever possible we use E0 board that emits only half the standard recommended E1 level.
- Our furniture is designed to be reusable
We strive to expand the lifespan of our furniture by having highly adaptable systems that can be disassembled and reassembled. If you are relocating, your Krost furniture can be moved and refitted, following the same or a different configuration to suit your new space.
- Our furniture is designed to last
We offer 5 to 10 years warranty on all our workstations and desks because we believe that furniture should be made to last. Many of our products are externally tested by 3rd party organisation such as AFRDI and BIFMA to test their quality.
- We have appropriate waste management in place
When the job is done and your new furniture beautifully installed, our teams ensure to remove all packaging and recycle as much of the waste as possible.
- We follow best practice principles for our environmental management
Our processes are in full compliance with ISO 14001, the international standard for Environmental Management Systems. With regular audits in place, ISO 14001 helps up identify areas of our operations that put the most strain on the environment and assists us in maximising our environment efficiencies. This means that we are constantly looking for ways to improve. Furthermore, some of our products hold additional qualification such as GECA (Good Environmental Choice Australia) certification to assure customers of sustainable and environmentally friendly practices.
