Moving Towards a Greener Future!

As part of Your Workspace’s on-going commitment to ensuring that our impact on the environment is kept to a minimum, we have secured Diplos as one of our suppliers, an Italian company who specialise in décor finishes and who have sustainability at the heart of their company’s ethos.

Diplos have been using recycled wood recovered from the separated waste collection of the municipal utilities in Italy and Europe for the past 25 years. Each year, they process over 400,000 tonnes of wooden materials sourced from the separated waste collection which would otherwise be burned or dumped as landfill. Instead, these materials are transformed into chipboard for the furniture industry, then finished with their decorative elements. Processed using cutting edge technologies, and highly eco-sustainable, all the panels manufactured are characterised by the use of safe glues that comply with the strictest laws on emissions, and are all FSC® certifiable, under License code FSC-C019776.

Your Workspace are also soon to join the Gold Standard, an organisation dedicated to reducing carbon emissions and promoting sustainable development within e-commerce. As a result of this, we will be offsetting our carbon emissions with an aim to becoming carbon neutral.

Our commitment to reducing our environmental footprint is also demonstrated in our manufacturing processes. The company use software programmes to maximise board usage during the cutting process to minimise waste, and which the majority is then used in the factories biomass boiler to heat the cutting and assembly rooms.

If you would like to find out more about our environmental polices and how we are making changes to operate as sustainably as possible, get in touch, we would be happy to discuss this with you!
