SINEU GRAFF has for a long time embraced sustainable development, as have all of our employees, such as:
- Decreasing our environmental impact on our sole production site:
By implementing a manufacturing procedure that pollutes as little and is as innovative as possible, we are aiming to limit as far as possible the impact of our industrial activity on the environment through the choices we have long been making:
- No longer using solvent products in our paints since 1999
- By recycling wood waste, dust and chips in a self-regulating biomass furnace, we can heat our buildings and drying chambers without the need for other sources of energy
- Making the most of waste from our raw materials (wood, metal, stainless steel, cast iron, aluminium)
- Saving energy throughout the company
- Investment in industrial processes that generate very little waste or effluent
- Ensuring our employees work in an environment that is healthy, filtered and dust-free, without the use of organic solvents or hydrocarbons.
- Designing our furniture based around recyclable and sustainable materials such as steel and Corten steel, stainless steel, aluminium, cast iron, and recycled plastic, while optimising the material.
- Favouring local supply in a circular economic mode (Awarded the 2013 Idée Alsace prize)
- Applying our environmentally-friendly approach to design when creating our urban furniture, right up to the conditioning and shipping, in order to optimise the use of materials, reuse scrap and to generate as little waste as possible, while ensuring that our furniture is easy to maintain to ensure a long life.
- Providing a highly-effective After Sales Service, far removed from programmed obsolescence, ensuring our clients have access to spare parts for a period of 10 years from when the product is no longer on the market.
The permanent integration of sustainable development in how we design and invest, enabling a blend of sustainable development, workplace health and economic and environmental performance.
Sineu Graff is a member of Idée Alsace, a regional network of partners committed to the responsible development of companies and regions, an organisation supported by the Grand Est region. An additional example of our commitment.
