With their 100% carbon neutral manufacture, are Rotpunkt’s designs the future of sustainable kitchens?
At the beginning of the year, German kitchen company Rotpunkt, began its global campaign to take action against climate change and implement new measures at its production sites in Bünde and Getmold in Germany, to ensure that the manufacture of its kitchens is 100% carbon neutral.
Matt Phillips, Head of UK Operations at Rotpunkt explained, “A consistent focus on environmental and social sustainability is the foundation for successful corporate development and as we enter a new era of global change, Rotpunkt welcomes the scope to evolve both brand and business and use ‘change as an opportunity’.”
“Aiming to set new standards within the kitchen furniture industry, our motivation is to produce kitchens as ethically as possible, which is why we have committed to 100% carbon neutral production with absolutely no compromise on quality or design. Our research shows that eco-credentials are a growing concern to the modern homeowner and our pledge for sustainable kitchen manufacture in 2020 is just one way we can reduce our carbon footprint and answer the growth for ethical consumerism” said Matt.
The interior design industry continues to tackle the debate on pollution, carbon emissions and climate change, and this has led to consumers becoming increasingly aware of the provenance and environmental impact of product design in the home.
“As a premium kitchen manufacturer, we recognise our influence and ability to impact market-change, which is why the production of sustainable furniture solutions has become an integral part of our past and future brand and business methodology. We want to bring this same level of stimulus to our UK retail network so they can help their customers make better choices and become part of Rotpunkt’s ‘climate action solution’,” said Matt.
Rotpunkt strongly believes that the furniture industry [and humanity] is on a precipice, which is why it has implemented change to accommodate this new generation of homeowner so the market can effectively navigate the uncertainty of climate change-related consequences and anticipate plans for future eco-oriented property development.
