Environment

Our commitment to the environment infiltrates everything we do.

We are conscious of environmental issues and continue to be at the forefront of environmental performance. Kada recognizes the importance of green building principles and are founding supporters and sponsors of the New Zealand Green Building Council.

In an effort to preserve our environment and its resources for future generations we continue our research and development work, seeking better materials and better environmental performance from our production facilities and products. Acknowledging the need for ongoing change, we look forward to working further with our suppliers, customers and other interested parties to decrease our carbon footprint and reduce our overall environmental impact.

Kada Commercial Furniture provides a full range of workplace products and services. Our portfolio includes not only the Kada product range, but also a range of international brands that have been carefully selected due to their innovation, product, and environmental policies.
Schiavello, one of the leading Furniture Manufacturers in Australia, have implemented systems to reduce their environmental impact by using 30% less materials than the previous generation workstations. The systems are designed for disassembly, re-use and re-manufacture.

Kada has an environmental programme which follows three principles:

Sustainability Principles: How to reduce dependence on mining and fossil fuels; How to reduce dependence on persistent, unnatural substances; How to reduce dependence on nature-consuming activities; How we can do more with less.

Environmental Policy: Key points committed to changing, being a leader in the Industry; continuous improvement; pollution prevention and reducing environmental impacts; legal compliance; establishing and maintaining an EMS; regular public reports.

Environmental Design Principles: Efficient energy use and minimum emissions; longevity and durability; minimum material usage; disassembly; re-use and re-manufacture; re-cycle; product stewardship; inform and educate.

Kada also works in partnership with Envirospec, the Recycle Centre, the Recycling Operators of New Zealand and the Ministry of Economic Development to provide a comprehensive End-of-Life Product Stewardship program. This will allow not only the return of Kada supplied product, but also the return of any branded furniture product, thus completing the life-cycle loop and assisting Kada Clients in delivering and achieving their own sustainability requirements.
