Energy & resources

We’re creating positive changes

For a long time we have been making more from less; it’s part of our heritage. We’re also busy turning waste into resources, sourcing food and materials in a responsible way and protecting natural resources. And because we want to become energy independent, we’re making the switch to renewable energy.

Climate & energy

We want to have a positive impact on the environment, which is why by 2020 we’re going to be 100% renewable – producing as much renewable energy as we consume using renewable sources, such as the wind and sun.

We’re big fans of wood. It’s a living material that lends durability and warmth, ages beautifully and is both renewable and recyclable.

Cotton is a natural, renewable material that’s used in some of our best-loved products – from sofas and cushions to bed sheets and bathoom textiles. We're all-in for cotton from more sustainable sources, and are working hard to make cotton farming better for people and the planet.
Clean, fresh water pouring over cupped hands.


Water is necessary for life – but clean, fresh water is something of a luxury in some parts of the world. That is why water, both when it comes to quantity and quality, is an important issue for us and our suppliers.

Making more from less goes back to our roots. But we always strive to do more to rethink what materials we use, and how we can make our products live longer in a cycle of repair, reuse, and recycling.
