Responsibility

We at belarteSTUDIO are new in this game and our aim is to be around for a long time. Our designs that are the heart of the company are made to last for generations. With that said we are humble to the fact that there are always improvements to be made on the impact we do. Our aim is to always try a bit harder, to be better for the People and the Planet.

 

Planet

BelarteSTUDIO production is made on-demand in our factory in Borås, Sweden. This means we only produce what you as our beloved customer wants. Zero-waste is our biggest and most important contribution to be a sustainable company with minimal environmental impact. 

Quality is our core, only the best is good enough for our customers.

The electricity we use for the office and the production is made from wind and water. 100% renewable energy.

We know we have an impact, and we have to cheat to say that we are “climate neutral” we use offsetting methods to compensate for our emissions. We do this by supporting projects that will hopefully avoid and reduce emissions faster than we do. This feels a little bit like cheating but since it’s the best option we have right now. We are continuously working with reducing our emissions and our climate footprint. All climate compensations our done together with Zero Mission In certified projects.

 

Product
