Sustainability

Poltrona Frau’s values go beyond design and aesthetics. The company has always concerned itself with sustainability, i.e. of combining the quality of its furniture and complementary accessories with the health of those that produce them and their possible impact on the environment.
A commitment that takes various forms, beginning with its choice of suppliers, strictly amongst the most sensitive to the issue of sustainability. Lots of importance is also attributed to workplace safety and to developing and maintaining a serene atmosphere based on consideration and respect for others, at all levels. Staff training and development are equally important priorities for Poltrona Frau. In fact, only in this way is it possible to maintain long-term working relationships with employees. And to transmit this experience, this expert handcraftsmanship which makes it possible to develop refined and complex projects, hallmark of the brand, to the next generation. People, but also the environment: a company deeply-rooted in its local community, like Poltrona Frau is, must promote it, supporting local cultural or social initiatives. Logistics, the use of energy resources and waste disposal are constantly monitored with the focus on optimisation and sustainable growth. Over the years Poltrona Frau has also been awarded the most important quality, ethics and environmental certification, consolidating its reputation as a committed and responsible company.

    Poltrona Frau and the environment

    Poltrona Frau was one of the first companies in Italy and the world to carry out an assessment in accordance with the ISO social responsibility guidelines. The certification obtained highlights the company's commitment to environmental sustainability and the health and safety of its workers. In light of this commitment, in 2010 Poltrona Frau installed a photovoltaic plant in the Tolentino headquarters.

    With a capacity of 1.4 megawatts thanks to the 18,000 thin film photovoltaic modules, the plant produces around 1.68 million kWh a year, a saving of 1176 tonnes of CO2, and makes the Poltrona Frau plant independent in terms of its electricity supply, with excess quotas sold to the national grid. A "Zero Waste" project was also launched at the Tolentino headquarters which has made it possible to maximise the separate waste collection process across the entire site.
