The Green Tag Manifesto
The Green Tag is a symbol of our ongoing commitment to sustainability. It’s a daily reminder for us to question every design and production decision we make. It’s our promise to tread lightly on the earth.
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.
At Zilenzio we are committed to
— Using our innovative mindset to develop more sustainable products, materials, and designs, 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.
— Using only FSC-certified wood, sourced from responsibly managed forests.
— Offering removable fabric that can be easily switched, cleaned, or replaced when necessary.
— Minimizing the waste of fabric and promoting the use of fabric that has known environmental standards such as Oeko-tex and Eco-label.
— We choose to work with stone wool, a retrievable material made from natural stone. The stone wool contains no plastic or other dangerous substances, and it is also fire-resistant and brilliantly sound-absorbing.
— No virgin PET fiber should be used in our studio assortment.
— Building long-term relationships with partners who take sustainability seriously and promote transparency throughout the supply chain.
— Adapting to the EU Taxonomy before we are obliged by legislation.
— Review our logistics and how we package our products. We want to transport our products with as little impact as possible and reduce the proportion of air in our transports by 20%.
— We collaborate with the waste management group Ragn-Sells Recycling, the stone wool producer Rockwool to offer a comprehensive return system where the stone wool can be recycled and transformed into brand-new products.
— We contribute to the global triple-certified Tropical Mix project, which in 2022 corresponds to 25,200 sqm of protected forest and a home to over 15 red-listed animal species.
Several of our products are available with replaceable fabric, and we can help you reupholster the products, to extend the product’s life and offer a truly sustainable alternative. Since 2022, we are not charging extra on removable fabrics for the Dezibel family.
Zilenzio x The Gold Standard
Zilenzio aims to map our climate impact throughout the chain and become climate neutral, but it takes time and is very complex.
We contribute to the global triple-certified Tropical Mix project, working towards restoring biodiversity and creating a healthy forest ecosystem on over 13 385 hectares in Panama, that would otherwise have been degraded or abandoned.
In 2022, this corresponds to 25,200 sqm of protected forest and home to over 15 red-listed animal species.
Since we started to work with Tropical Mix, 7.5 million trees have been planted in the area and over 150 long-term jobs with health insurance and pensions have been generated.
