Willing to be your one-stop service provider in the furniture field

In France, 1.7 million tonnes of furniture are thrown away every year. To reduce the impact of this furniture, Eco-mobilier is the eco-organisation that organises the recycling process.Nevertheless, although recycling furniture is a very good thing, it is impossible to do it endlessly (only 2 or 3 cycles are possible) and with an inevitable environmental impact. The longevity of furniture is therefore crucial so that it can live, change hands, and be transformed for decades.


Fondhouse is committed to working towards increased sustainability in Made-furniture areas.


To determine the precise environmental impact of our products, we carry out life-cycle analyses. This enables us to identify the stages with the greatest impact and to concentrate our efforts there. For our furniture, the main stages will be the production of timber and its transformation, as well as transportation. We have found that shipping emits much less greenhouse gas per tonne-kilometre, which means, for example, that shipping from Indonesia is equivalent to road haulage from Ukraine.


In order to improve our sustainable development initiative, we have carried out a carbon assessment, measuring our greenhouse gas emissions in all steps. Via our global Fondhouse-Green initiative, we are committed, with transparency, to improving our products (eco-design), packaging and transport, and to communicating our reflections and efforts with you.


About Fondhouse's eco-design policy

We are Chain of Custody FSC® certified, using wood from carefully reviewed forestry practices, in order to protect the diversity of fauna and flora and assure forest conservation over the long term.Our commitment to WWF is evidence of our desire to have a positive environmental and social impact.

We have implemented an eco-design process that targets both new products in development and existing products. We have carried out a complete review of our products, which has enabled us to produce them using fewer basic materials, reuse wood off-cuts, and standardize hardware, all while preserving the same high quality. The implementation of life-cycle analyses completes and corroborates this systems approach.

We are convinced of the need to increase global forest cover in order to slow down climate change, protect biodiversity and support local communities. As a member of FSC® France, we are committed to implementing an internal policy of sustainable purchasing and global forest conservation. A European Union Timber Regulation procedure, reviewed each year, ensures the origin of the timber used in our products.
