The Green Tag Manifesto
We’re challenging the integrity and longevity of our brand from the inside out. And we’re inviting our customers and partners to join us on this exciting and essential mission.
The Green Tag is a symbol of our ongoing commitment to sustainability. It’s a daily reminder for us to interrogate every design and production decision we make. It’s our promise to tread lightly on the earth.
At Zilenzio we are committed to:
— Using our innovative mindset to develop more sustainable products and ensure our business model positively impacts the environment.
— Following the guidelines set out by Möbelfakta to ensure we provide excellent quality with strong environmental awareness and social responsibility.

Zilenzio x The Gold Standard
Zilenzio aims to map our climate impact throughout the chain, but it takes time and is very complex. Until it is clear, we choose to compensate for the climate from a global perspective and support a Gold Standard project called Tropical mix, the only forest project in the world that is triple certified with Gold Standard, FSC and UTZ.
One ton in the Gold Standard project Tropical Mix corresponds to approximately seven planted trees and 65 sqm of protected forest. We plant one tree per order, which in 2021 corresponds to 334 tones, 21,042 sqm of protected forest and home to over 15 red – listed animal species.
Several of our products are available with replaceable fabric to extend the product’s life and offer a truly sustainable alternative. From 2022 we will not be charging extra on removable fabrics for the Dezibel family.
