Martela’s responsibility impact extends far beyond the business.
Our role in defining workplaces and learning environments gives us an exceptionally good opportunity to have an impact on our customers’ efficient and ecological use of space.
Our Martela Lifecycle model guarantees sustainability in all the stages of our workplaces’ and learning environments’ lifecycles. In terms of both environmental impact and particularly energy, it is vital that the facilities are the correct kind and size. Through good planning we can create facilities that are up to 20–30 per cent smaller than estimated. The most important thing is, however, that the space is suited for its purpose. The environmental impact of unused facilities and furniture is completely unnecessary.
The concept Waste Nothing is at the heart of our work. Martela’s durable and timeless furniture are built to last from user to user. When certain pieces are no longer required, we will find them new owners, and if they can no longer be repaired, we will reuse the materials in our production.
