The idea of a healthy environment is a question of attitude. And because every individual can do something to contribute to it, all our members of staff are obliged, to an exceptional degree, to base their actions in their particular sphere on considerations of sustainability, in its economic, ecological and social aspects.
Geuther has an outstanding sense of responsibility for nature and the environment, and we have the certificates to prove it. Our timber suppliers are FSC(R) certified. All our furniture surfaces conform to DIN 53160 standards (resistance to saliva and perspiration) and to the European EN 71 standard for the safety of toys. The paper we use for advertising purposes has FSC(R) certification from the manufacturer, and the printing has been certified as climatically neutral. In relation to formaldehyde emissions, our products have been placed in the lowest E1 class – and you can‘t do better than that! Our cardboard packaging carries the RESY symbol, meaning that it can be 100% recycled. In furniture production, massive beech wood from German and European forests is our first choice: this natural and endlessly renewable material is strong, reliable, can be used for the most beautiful creations – and is completely recyclable!
Geuther relies on the most modern technology. Dip painting, for example, is a lengthy process, but it has its advantages. First of all, it gives rise to a very even coating; and at the same time it offers health and safety benefits, as it does not involve paint spray with its damaging effects on the lungs. CNC milling of the latest generation gets the wood into shape with a minimum of material wastage. The resulting waste timber feeds our plant heating system, which as a result can dispense with non-renewable combustible materials like coal and oil.
Whenever possible we optimise our activities, with a view to preserving nature for future generations. This is a matter of principle for us, because we want to make our contribution to a world worth living in.
