the environment very seriously.

Environment and Sustainability

 

At Indian Ocean® we truly value our connection with the environment, and support sustainability causes on a local and global scale.

We have always pioneered an environmentally sound future for our industry; in 1995 we helped to establish WWF95, a ground-breaking partnership between businesses and one of the world’s leading environmental groups: the WWF. As founding members, we strived to ensure that our timber would always be sourced in well-managed forests. The creation of the Forest Stewardship Council® helped us to supply FSC® certified Teak products. We are proud to hold an FSC promotional licence. 

All our Teak is harvested by local experts on responsibly managed plantations and we have spearheaded sustainable manufacturing practices for decades.

We not only care deeply about our products, but about our people too; we understand our social responsibilities and expect our suppliers to share this value. We insist that all of our international partners exceed local labour standards, and we continue to support the local orphanage in our major supply area.

At Indian Ocean we operate a green policy in all procedures and we use energy as efficiently as possible in our stores, offices and warehouse. For your convenience we remove all packaging materials after delivering your furniture and recycle them on your behalf. Our technical materials, REHAU® & BATYLINE®, are 100% recyclable as well.

As members of Forest Carbon, we are able to offset our carbon footprint by creating woodland across the UK. Through the planting of over 10.3 million trees since 2006, we have helped to remove over 2,100,000 tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere and helped in the growth of 220+ forests. These woodland areas also mitigate local flood risks, provide habitats for wildlife, and give the public access to nature.
