Environmental Responsibility

Manufacturing and design must care about the future generations

We made it our mission to care – for our customers, employees, and the planet. We challenge the standards of yesterday and keep raising the bar for responsible and transparent production. We are focused on reducing emissions and using sustainable resources. We challenge ourselves and our partners to rethink the full supply-chain to make effective solutions protecting our earth.

Our policies

Policy The UN Global Compact principles 7-9 outline the guiding of responsibilities within the area of environment.

LTP Group care about the environment, and we continuously aim to minimize our environmental footprint. LTP operates in an industry which is known to have a significant impact on the environment in terms of use of chemicals, water waste and CO2. Therefore, we carry a responsibility to drive new ideas and standards to minimize the footprint on the climate and life on earth.

LTP Contract Furniture is FSC-certified. FSC is a rigorous, credible forest certification system. The Forest Stewardship CouncilTM (FSC) ensures the full supply chain to follow rigid ecological, social and financial standards. The goal for 2020 is to have all carton and all wooden frames for soft seating to be based on FSC materials, and by 2021 LTP believe that taking charge of the environmental footprint arising from our productions is a must.

We have a strong priority to reduce the use of plastics and glue. Today, all plastic packaging received is sent for recycling. The products produced in LTP Group involve the use of plastic bags, and LTP strive to replace the use of traditional plastic bags with recycled plastic bags. LTP offer recycled plastic bags as part of the standard offering with the goal by the end of 2020 to have 25% of the plastic bags replaced by recycled plastic, and 50% in 2022.

The use of solvent based glue damages the environment. Therefore, by the end of 2019, almost all upholstered products, leaving the LTP Contract furniture production, were manufactured using water-based glue. The goal for 2020 is to fully exclude solvent based glue from our production.

LTP Group’s policy in energy consumption focus to limit the consumption in all processes in fully owned factories and to reduce the CO2 emission per produced piece. In 2019 the emission elements are identified and measures to follow the emission related to gas, electricity, solid waste, diesel, flights, inbound transport and internal transport are defined. The count of CO2 emission does not include electricity/gas/waste for sub-contractors or material suppliers. LTP target is to decrease the CO2 emission by 50% towards 2030.
