Sustainable quality aims to find solutions where high quality, longevity and all other aspects of sustainability are equally important.
KVIST has been FSC certified since 2012 and achieved the license for the EU Ecolabel on furniture as the second furniture company in Denmark in 2019. In the same year, KVIST started a transition towards using water-based lacquers instead of polyurethane lacquers, reducing the emission of harmful VOC (volatile organic substances) significantly, improving both the internal occupational health and the external environmental impacts. KVIST is continuously working together with customers, suppliers and knowledge hubs to certify more products and find more sustainable solutions to the benefit of all both socially, economically and environmentally.
