Environmental Sustainability

At Viccarbe we believe that sustainability is designing and producing furniture that will stay with us for the longest time possible. Furniture we won’t want to throw out. Consequently, the concept of environmental sustainability becomes important for Viccarbe from the furniture’s conception, right through its design until the end of its useful life cycle.

Our collection is not extensive because we are only interested in producing something that is genuinely worthy of becoming a contemporary classic.

Produce sensibly and consume no more than necessary. Quality ahead of quantity.

Viccarbe is environmental management system was ISO 14001 certified in 2007. This certification allows us to demonstrate appropriate environmental performance and an adequate control of the impact of our activities, services and products on the environment.

The benefits of this certification mean we can:

  • Assure the customer that appropriate environmental management is being carried out by showing proof of it.
  • Maintain a good relationship with the community and the general public by evaluating and minimising the environmental impact produced in the area.
  • Comply with the relevant environmental legislation.

As we’ve already mentioned, the concept of sustainability is born in the early stages of the design. We try to design products with easily interchangeable parts, making it easier to recycle the various components at the end of their life cycle.

Viccarbe offers the Product Environmental Profile (PEP),  a type II environmental self-declaration that includes relevant environmental declarations about the materials that make up the product an their environmental impact. Discover PEP files here.

At Viccarbe, we believe that this is the way forward. To respect that which surrounds us.
