They offer ‘smart working’ solutions which enables clients to work in new collaborative ways which therefore transforms the culture and efficiency of their organisations. Smart working and task seating define Orangebox.
Orangebox and their responsibility
Smarter manufacturing processes enables Orangebox to source suitable local partners wherever possible. Streamlined processes, reduced transportation miles and reusable packaging are vital whilst supporting local businesses and social enterprises. They task their suppliers with a breakdown of information advising them of environmentally responsible materials and monitor their suppliers every yearly quarter. This brand offers ‘Orangebox remade’ which gives products coming to the end of their lifespan a second chance! Products can now be fully restored to their former quality and sold with a warranty matching the warranty of a new product. The first product offered under rangebox Remade is the ‘G64’ – one of Europe’s most popular and durable office chairs. The remade version – ‘G64-R’ is as good if not better than the original, with 98% of the parts being recyclable and removed components either being kept for reuse or returned for material processing. Each chair has a 60% reduction in CO2 emissions and saves 75% of water consumption compared to the creation of a brand-new chair.
