Caring for our Planet

Given the current climate, companies across the globe are looking at ways to cut costs and become more environmentally friendly. Whether this is to help the planet or to simply cut energy costs, it's obvious now more than ever that we need to embrace new ways of working.

 Here at JDD Furniture, we are investing a lot of time, money and effort into reducing our carbon footprint across the entire business. By prioritising sustainable practices and reducing carbon emissions, we are not only contributing positively to the environment but also reaping various long-term benefits.

Our Responsibility

We have a responsibility to our community and environment. As a manufacturer, we also need to be gentle on the environment. That means we are never wasteful of raw materials and we always reduce, reuse and recycle!

With increasing awareness of environmental issues, many consumers prefer to support eco-conscious companies. By promoting its sustainable practices, we can attract and retain environmentally aware customers, leading to a potential increase in sales and brand loyalty. Additionally, such practices can also help attract and retain employees who value corporate environmental responsibility.

FISP Renewal

Our first step was to renew our membership with FISP -
Furniture Industry Sustainability Programme for another year. By doing so, we will continue to assess and reduce our carbon emissions throughout our operations. This will involve implementing energy-efficient manufacturing techniques, adopting renewable energy sources, and optimising transportation logistics to minimise greenhouse gas emissions.

As timber is a primary component of our products, we are FSC® certified (FSC-C109654) which ensures our timber comes from fully audited sustainable forests.

Solar Panels

Installing solar panels on our HQ roof is a significant step toward utilising renewable energy. Solar energy is a clean and abundant resource, and by generating electricity on-site, we reduce our reliance on fossil fuels, which are major contributors to greenhouse gas emissions.

Solar panels can significantly reduce electricity bills over time, making the us more resilient to fluctuating energy prices and reducing operational expenses.

Design & Manufacturing

By sourcing materials locally and sustainably, we help reduce the carbon footprint associated with transportation and supports responsible resource management. This leads to lower greenhouse gas emissions, decreased deforestation, and less habitat destruction, all of which contribute to environmental preservation.

We don’t ship parts from other continents, we don’t outsource our designs and we don’t outsource development. We are mindful of the carbon footprint of all our processes throughout the entire manufacturing journey and are always finding new ways to reduce our emissions further.

Embracing sustainable materials and practices often requires innovative thinking and a willingness to adapt. This mindset can lead to new ideas and solutions that benefit the company in various aspects, beyond just environmental ones. It fosters a culture of continuous improvement and staying ahead in a rapidly changing business landscape.

Waste Reduction & Recycling

Recycling as much as possible and finding new life for offcut wood in smaller projects or through responsible local partnerships helps minimise waste going to landfills. This reduces the environmental impact of waste disposal and promotes a circular economy approach, where materials are reused and repurposed instead of discarded.

Our offices are fitted with energy saving bulbs and we are actively working to remove paper from the workplace, moving to a more digital way of working. We also utilise material off cuts wherever possible or use them to create smaller products such as tote bags as promotional giveaways.
