To protect our environment we regularly assess the whole life-cycle of our production with focus on the type of raw material used, production processes, waste, use and disposal. The latest initiative has been our focus on water usage says President and CEO Nils Gunnar Hjellegjerde. We have found out that we can reduce our water consumption with 24% if we invest in recycling and reusing facilities. Basically implement a smarter way to use water more than one time!. We have just invested in new water saving equipments for our foam department in our Vietnam plant says Nils Gunnar Hjellegjerde. This is a win-win situation. We save water costs as well as protecting the environment.
Creating sustainable products by using eco-friendly wood and raw materials, reducing waste factor and the energy consumption in our production processes as well as extending the useful lifetime of our products and recyclability are always in the mind set of the senior Management of IMG.
But one of the best thing to do out of the respect of both our customers and the environment, is to make furniture that is long lasting says Nils Gunnar Hjellegjerde.
