Malmstolen and the environment
It is impossible to care so much about the way people feel without caring about the environment too. Therefore our full product range is environmentally certified according to the new, stricter criteria of the Nordic Ecolabel. High quality comes with durability. Our entire range also carries the Möbelfakta label, which stands for Quality, the Environment and Social Responsibility. We are very proud of this.
The purpose of Nordic Ecolabelling and the Möbelfakta label is to help consumers to choose the best products in the market, in environmental and quality terms. The vision is a sustainable society, with ecolabelling contributing to sustainable consumption, to which high quality is directly related. For companies, the Nordic Ecolabel and the Möbelfakta label are proof of working actively for a sustainable environment, from several aspects that help both individual people and our planet.
Nordic Ecolabel criteria for furniture
The Nordic Ecolabel is the Nordic region’s leading ecolabel for furniture and furnishings, and is the only independent environmental label. Nordic Ecolabelled furniture fulfils stringent environmental requirements of materials such as wood, metal, upholstery, plastic, and the chemicals and manufacturing processes used. Approved products have some of the lowest environmental impacts in the market.
The Möbelfakta label stands for Quality, the Environment and Social Responsibility. Our chairs’ quality and safety are tested according to the current EN1335 European standard. Our Malmstolen 4000, 7000, R4, R7 and Cpod models are also tested and approved according to the toughest test of them all, which concerns use around the clock. Since Malmstolen is Nordic Ecolabelled, this entails automatic environmental approval. We consider it natural to be a socially responsible company. These standards adhere to the the UN’s ”Code of Conduct” concerning human rights.
