Elena Veneziani, UL Environment Business Development Manager, quoted:
“Orgatec confirmed the office furniture industry is paying growing attention and is more and more committed to circularity, sustainability and the wellness of human beings.
That aligns with UL‘s mission of working to help the places where we live and work to become safer, more sustainable and healthier.
Manufacturing companies of office furniture are more and more looking at designing products that can be reused or repurposed during their life cycle in order to provide more flexibility and longer life time to products.
Moreover the higher attention toward the health and wellbeing of occupant is leading the companies in using material that respect more rigorous requirements in terms of emission of volatile organic compounds. At last the working space is becoming more and more “active” with adjustable desks and areas that can be personalized and provide different ways of working of an increasingly different workforce with different needs”.
In line with this trend UL is a trusted and credible partner and support the industry, in Italy as all over the world through certification, testing, verification solutions, standards and educational programs.
It is a vision that inspire design and Circular Economy,
