Andreu world and the circular economy
From a small cabinetmaking workshop that opened its doors more than 65 years ago to the furniture company with worldwide presence that is Andreu World today, the company has never ceased to work with wood as a raw material: the most sustainable material is also its added value.
Andreu World has implemented a whole strategy based on the precepts of the circular economy, held up by twelve pillars and with the aim of multiplying the sustainability of its products and services. The first pillar corresponds to product design, opting for timeless designs that manage to be both classic and contemporary. What could be more sustainable than making products that last over time and are handed down from generation to generation? Furthermore, they control the whole value chain to safeguard the quality of the raw material, the reforestation of the trees felled and the sustainable origin of the wood used.
In recent years, the company has incorporated another type of material, propylene, which is 100% sustainable and 100% recyclable, and the fabric ‘circular one’ which is manufactured with plastic from PET bottles and textile waste, far more resistant and durable. In its global strategy, Andreu World aims for all of its processes to form part of the circular economy by 2030.
Sustainable and recyclable materials, raw material recovered from waste, support for design, youth employment and the conservation of traditional cabinetmaking skills, while controlling processes to reduce their impact, these are the defining elements of the commitment by Andreu World to contribute to a more environmentally friendly economy.
