Fit for the future
It’s estimated that in Sydney alone furniture that ends up being dumped in landfill every year is the equivalent of 800,000 three-seater sofas, 1.65 million dining tables, 3.4million coffee tables or 6.85 million chairs.
So what is Koskela doing?
We believe that as originators of products we have a responsibility to ensure that our products have as minimal an impact on the earth as possible. Our end goal is that that they help regenerate the earth.
Our Koskela Future Fit program aims to move our business towards a circular economic model which is designed to benefit business, society and the environment. In contrast to the 'take-make-waste' linear model, a circular economy is regenerative by design and aims to gradually decouple growth from the consumption of limited resources.
