The use of wood in the manufacture of furniture was not going to be an exception, and we will therefore focus on initiatives which are respectful, although they are in the minority.
Capdell is one of the Valencian companies whose tradition is historically linked to carpentry, which is prominent in its collections. The wood it uses to bring its furniture to life always comes from controlled felling forests, where a tree is planted for each one cut down. Additionally, it uses water-based stains and glues and almost all the materials it uses are recyclable. It optimises the discarding of wood to the maximum, and the potential waste which may arise from manufacturing is reused to generate energy which feeds the production system itself and the heating.
The Valencian company Andreu World, in turn, was the first in the world to have a full range with the FSC® certification. It only uses sustainable wood obtained from reforestation and takes care of it throughout the chain of custody: beginning with controlled felling, then the arrival of the trunks at the sawmill, and finally, the boards sent to factories for transformation into components. From the tree to the final product.
It boasts having industrialised craftsmanship without losing its essence. It has moved from the monotechnology of wood to a polytechnology without losing its original values. Committed to achieving 100% of materials and processes being in the circular economy by 2025, it considers this something unavoidable in the face of the main global issues (depletion of natural resources, pollution and climate change). The objective is Zero Waste under the motto of the 3Rs: reduce, recycle and reuse.
