For us, sustainability means considering economic, social, and environmental factors. We are careful in selecting materials and prioritize designs with long lifespans that have minimal impact on the environment

Our visions entail ..

– Convert conventional power into CO2-neutral energy. We aim to integrate our solar cell technology into more of our products.

– Improve the sustainability of our plastic products by using recycled consumer waste or bio-based materials. We currently have a 100% recycled version in anthracite and seek a solution for colored versions.

– Measure and reduce the CO2 footprint in our PE (Polyethylene) products. In plastic production, we continue to work on enhancing processes to determine CO2 values for each product and various material variants. We collaborate with the company Maalbar, which conducts CO2eq calculations. For example, calculations show that Loop Circle reduces CO2 emissions by 13% using 100% recycled material.

– Enhance the sustainability of compact laminate products. HPL panels are made from 65% surplus wood, and we aim to make the binder (resin) environmentally friendly.

– Implement 3D printing with bio-based materials. We currently use this in our prototype development and aim to expand this method.

… and we are well on our way

We comply with the Nordic Swan Ecolabel on our #20 Recycled Anthracite, which is used in the production of the Loop family. In the video above, you can see how we produce the recycled version, consisting of 85% recycled polyethylene and 15% re-used plastic bags. We aim to implement similar certifications for more of our products

DTU chose Nordic Swan Ecolabel certified furniture for the study environment

In 2020, DTU Campus in Kgs. Lyngby chose to have Loop benches delivered in the 100% recycled version. A total of 42 products from the Loop series were installed, and by opting for the anthracite recycled version, approximately 700 kg of CO2, or about 14%, was saved compared to if a standard plastic version had been chosen

Naturkraft: Solar-powered lights on the heath

In Ringkøbing, landscape architects SLA have designed the nature and experience area, Naturkraft. To minimize interference with the area’s natural environment and make use of existing fence posts, the architects have chosen to work with solar-powered lights in the open landscape.

A solar cell unit called ‘Point Sun’ is mounted on the fence posts along the paths in the area. This solution allows the lighting to be integrated into the landscape without the need for cables or traditional electrical installations.

The solar-powered lighting also provides an economic benefit as the lights do not consume energy but are charged by the sun

At out-sider, we operate based on Sustainable Development Goals: 3, 11, and 12, where we aim to create value and make a real difference

The UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 3 aims to ensure health and well-being for all ages.

We have chosen to work with these goals for several reasons. Our outdoor furniture plays a crucial role in promoting a healthy lifestyle by encouraging outdoor activities. These furnishings are carefully designed with a focus on comfort and ergonomics, motivating physical activity and mental well-being. Outdoor furniture creates inclusive spaces that foster social interactions and positive mental health.

The UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 11 aims to create inclusive, safe, and sustainable cities and communities.

We contribute to this goal through the design and production of furniture that harmonizes aesthetics and functionality in urban spaces and public areas. This creates attractive and user-friendly outdoor environments, strengthens social bonds, and improves quality of life. Simultaneously, it contributes to more durable furniture that fits into a circular economy. Our focus on accessible outdoor spaces, accommodating diverse needs such as the elderly and disabled, promotes inclusion and ensures accessibility for all citizens. Furthermore, we strive for our furniture to be diverse and suitable for every neighborhood’s character and population.

The UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 12 focuses on establishing sustainable consumption and production patterns, which directly aligns with our practices.

We aim to contribute to this goal by being conscious of our choices regarding environmentally friendly materials and production methods. This includes sustainable and recyclable materials, as well as reducing waste and emissions during production. By creating durable furniture, we reduce the need for frequent replacement, thereby minimising waste and resource consumption. Furthermore, we work to increase awareness of responsible consumption and production practices, such as educating about maintenance, repair, and recycling of our products, thus contributing to a more sustainable consumption culture.

At out-sider, we strive to promote a sustainable culture and integrate it into everything we do.

Our work is characterised by a commitment to making sustainable decisions that reflect our dedication to the Sustainable Development Goals. For instance, we always turn off electronic equipment when leaving the office, opt for energy-saving lighting, and use low-energy programs for dishwashing. We offer organic coffee and ingredients for our meals. Our location in the heart of the capital also provides us with an opportunity to encourage each other to use public transportation or bicycles, a small yet significant action. Most importantly, sustainability is an ongoing journey. By evaluating our initiatives and identifying further improvements, we can positively impact both the environment and the well-being of our employees.
