In maintaining the quality and safety, and reducing the negative environmental impact of our products, processes and technologies, we are helped by the management systems we have in place, which are based on the requirements of the following: Quality Management System ISO 9001 and Facility Production Inspection, Occupational Safety and Health Management System ISO 45001 and Environmental Management System ISO 14001 and FSC® (FSC-C120977). Our plants operate according to those standards.
In order to reduce our negative impact on the natural environment, we implemented CO2 Performance Ladder, a system supporting sustainability and reduction of CO2 emissions in our companies (Nowy Styl sp. z o.o., Nowy Styl Deutschland GmbH and Rohde & Grahl B.V.). In addition, we have implemented the voluntary Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS) at our Nowy Styl Deutschland GmbH plant.
To improve the environmental properties of our products, we have started manufacturing products made of cellular board. Cellular board is a modern and eco-friendly material that is widely used in the furniture industry. It has surface layers made of durable chipboard or HDF boards and a paper filling that resembles honeycomb. Its biggest advantage is that it is lightweight, which helps lower transport costs and fuel consumption. It is durable and has all the important constructional features too. The production of cellular board requires less wood-based material, and cellular board is fully recyclable.
With the help of European Funds, we have developed new technology that enables us to use our production waste to the maximum possible extent and reduce our consumption of raw materials. Composite board is made of waste generated during manufacturing processes (e.g. wood-based waste, scraps of upholstery fabrics). It can successfully replace the components used previously. You can find composite board, for example, in upholstered versions of our popular chairs as well as in other chairs for cafes, home interiors and office social zones.
We are one of the leading furniture companies when it comes to innovative production. We are also implementing Industry 4.0 technologies, such as smart devices that help us fully automate production and optimise processes using the data gathered in real time. By using these devices, we can shorten the product implementation time and increase the efficiency of manufacturing short product batches on an industrial scale. This will enable us to adjust the existing products to the individual needs of our clients, which is essential in terms of responding to their requirements quickly and accurately.
