HONEST & SUSTAINABLE

Dedication to working with the best designers and materials has always been fundamental to Carl Hansen & Søn, as has our commitment to honoring designers’ original ideas.

Great design and sustainable production are inseparable. This deeply ingrained belief shapes the work of our designers – and every process in our manufacturing facilities. Carl Hansen & Søn is certified to produce FSC®-certified furniture (FSC-C135991) and we work continuously to ensure healthy, safe work conditions for our craftspeople, and use only responsibly sourced, safe materials to protect our customers and the environment.  We purchase wood from sustainably managed forests and responsible sawmills with which we have long-established relationships. We use nearly every bit of wood we source, recycling the little that remains in district heating plants.

Our paper cord, too, comes from renewable forests and is biodegradable, and our leather and other upholstery materials come from tanneries and producers with strict sustainability requirements. To do our part in protecting the world’s natural resources, we continually improve our production techniques, logistics and sales methods to work in ways that are as gentle as possible on our planet. From investing in the most modern and energy efficient equipment to setting annual targets for reducing the amount of energy we use in production, we make every effort to minimize our footprint, striving to leave behind nothing but beautiful furniture and a legacy of uncompromising craftsmanship.
