Sustainable Office Furniture Is Important To Us.

Office furniture and cabinet manufacturing is not something traditionally associated with being sustainable or environmentally friendly. Thankfully this is beginning to change with New Zealand companies leading the way in sustainably sourced and low emission materials.  At Skara we look forward to a future where all manufactures make the effort to use environmentally friendly materials and manufacturing processes.

The Skara website highlights products that are exceeding expectations for sustainability. We believe it’s important to give  consumers this information so they can make conscious decisions to support these manufacturers. And by highlighting the environmentally friendly products we hope to encourage other companies to review their choice of materials and manufacturing processes to earn the sustainability icon too.

Environmentally Friendly Office Furniture

Keep an eye out for products with the sustainable icon which indicates this product goes above and beyond to use environmentally friendly materials.

Melteca Logo

Melteca is an excellent example of a high quality product resulting from successfully reducing or reusing resources to minimise our impact on the natural environment.

New Zealand made, responsibly sourced and low emission; Melteca supports the New Zealand Green Building Council’s Green Star and Homestar tools. Green Star is a rating system for the design, construction and operation of buildings, fitout and communities, and Homestar measures the health, warmth and efficiency of New Zealand houses.

Melteca is low emission and Melteca on Lakepine MDF is especially low in formaldehyde – in fact it contains less than the average apple! 

The Melteca manufacturing plant holds an enviable array of third party certifications for both the product itself and the way it is made. Third party certifications provide assurance that you are choosing quality laminated panels which meet or often surpass, rigorous industry testing and standards.

  • The use of sustainably-sourced timber veneer, melamine and substrates.
  • Supplying low-formaldehyde board – all our NZ supplied standard and MR MDF is rated EO.
  • Only using electricity from certified renewable sources.
  • Reducing manufacturing waste and also finding new ways to re-use and recycle any that is generated.
