Designed for Generations
The above is how Skagerak Denmark has worded its slogan for years. The slogan covers several key aspects of our activities, approaches and actions. In one respect it means that we make our products to last for generations, both aesthetically and in terms of design, and that design is and has been one of our most important guiding principles for generations. Just as importantly, it means that through our actions, decisions and priorities we consider the needs of coming generations. Thus our slogan relates directly to our environmental policy.
Quality is environmental responsibility
Skagerak Denmark continuously endeavors to provide the highest quality possible throughout the value chain. Accordingly, quality also involves an environmentally responsible manufacturing process based on sustainable, renewable resources and – just as importantly – respecting the people who in one way or another are affected by the manufacture of our products.
Environmental responsibility deals with more than just the use of sustainable resources. It also entails the service life of our products. When you choose a quality product in a design you like, it will last many years – in terms of both its functionality and its aesthetic qualities. As a result, you minimize the environmental impact of the extraction of raw materials, manufacture and transport. Whether a set of furniture lasts twenty years or has to be replaced four or five times during the course of twenty years makes a big difference – also in terms of the environment.
