Climate and Sustainability


There is no excuse for postponing climate action. At ConSet, we have created a sustainability business model to minimize the impact that our products and employees have on the environment. We are committed to implementing targeted strategies to achieve goals that reduce our carbon footprint to ensure meaningful contributions to sustainability and a green transition. Our first steps are underway in documenting and measuring our current environmental performance. From our findings we will develop bolder initiatives that will mitigate and reduce waste and emissions every year.


To show our progress and commitment to climate action, each product on our website will be continually updated with a number representing its CO2 emission from raw materials to the end of the desks lifetime. The product's CO2 emission is basically an expression of the total amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases emitted. The calculation includes raw materials, painting, packaging, use of energy in connection with production, transportation to the costumer and disposal.


This means that you know the climate effect of each individual desk to make the most sustainable choice, while achieving your own environmental goals. The calculations of the products' CO2 emissions are based on Danish recognized sources, including the Climate Compass and the Sustainable Bottom Line Tool.


At the headquarters in Denmark, we have made significant energy improvements:

•   Replacement of natural gas with district heating
•   Replacement of fluorescent tubes and light bulbs with LED
•   Replacement of truck curtains with insulated electric gates
•   Monitoring electricity consumption and making improvements to reduce energy usage overall.

Our main focus is decreasing the CO2 emission of our products.
To help us do this ConSet has performed a Life Cycle Assessment(LCA) on our desks. The work has been carried out by an external consultant and TÜV has conducted critical review as third party. The standard basis is EN14040, EN 14044 and EN 14071.

The LCA is a great tool in our toolbelt when we are developing new products, as we now have a complete picture of what parts of our products we can change to lower CO2 emissions as much as possible.

Read our publication which summarizes the result of the LCA and gives insight into the ConSet approach to making sustainable and durable standing desk.
