A focus on environmental sustainability

Sustainable design

Designing with nature means minimizing the negative impact of the design process and generating high-quality products that can stand the test of time, both in terms of style and performance, putting the health and comfort of people first.
This is Kastel’s philosophy: to furnish spaces that take care of the well-being of those who use them.

Productive process

During the production phase, the utmost attention is paid to reducing the consumption of raw materials, the rationalization of resources, the reuse and / or recycling of waste, and the control of emissions. Making durable products, both from an aesthetic and resistance point of view, is the key element to guarantee sustainability. Kastel products are made with high quality raw materials and are fully recyclable and environmentally friendly. Right from the design stage, Kastel chairs are designed to be produced and disassembled through processes aimed at limiting consumption.

Commitment to the environment that also passes through the choice of reliable partners in compliance with the “C.A.M.” Minimum Environmental Criteria, requirements identified for the different phases of the production process, aimed at identifying the best design solution, product or service in terms of environmental valid for the entire life cycle of the product. Introduced in Italy in 2015 by art. 18 of Law no. 221 dated 28 December 2015 and, subsequently, by art. 34, the C.A.M. represent the national reference point of GPP (Green Public Procurement or Sustainable Purchases of the Public Administration), the environmental policy instrument established by the European Commission which intends to favour the development of a market of products and services with reduced environmental impact, thus defining the obligation to include technical specifications and the clauses specified therein in public tenders, consequently encouraging more sustainable production and models of purchasing.
