In a world where environmental awareness is increasing almost exponentially, technical furniture used 24 hours a day, 7 days a week has to contribute to the reduction of such pressures. At Adaptaspace, we strongly believe that it is our responsibility to design, manufacture and deliver products that will not only reduce the impact on the environment, but also be friendly to its users.
Products we design, processes we use in our manufacturing and in our offices, materials we incorporate in our products, subcontractors we employ are all selected to a great extent for their contribution to improve our environment.
Adaptaspace believes that the first step to a better environment starts from the beginning in everything we do. From electronic document submissions to the selection of green products, Adaptaspace is always looking to improve our environmental impact.
