We are members of the British Contract Furniture Association (BCFA) and Furniture Industry Research Association (FIRA), having achieved full accreditation under the Furniture Industry Sustainability Programme (FISP).
As you would expect from one of the UK’s foremost commercial furniture manufacturers, we are a quality assured organisation accredited to both ISO 9001 and ISO14001.
We regularly monitor and review our performance to ensure we manufacture in the most responsible manner. Our R4 environmental charter has been developed to encourage us to Reduce, Reuse, Refurbish and Recycle wherever possible. We strive to continually reduce our energy consumption and waste production. Training has been provided to all employees and energy saving initiatives introduced throughout the organisation. We are proud to offer customers the option of having old chairs professionally refurbished or disposed of in a sustainable and environmentally friendly manner. We work with partner organisations to support initiatives that enable old chairs to be reused by schools, charities and community groups. R4 establishes a new industry-leading standard for sustainability and sets us apart from many other seating manufacturers. The steps we take to remain at the forefront of environmentally friendly manufacturing and provide customers with an assured, ethical source of supply are described in our environmental policy.
