Powering Positive Change

At VE Furniture, we're committed to creating a sustainable future through responsible practices and innovative solutions. From solar-powered operations to advanced recycling programs, we're dedicated to reducing our environmental footprint while delivering exceptional educational furniture.

Our Commitment to the Planet

At VE Furniture, we recognise that our responsibility extends beyond providing high-quality educational furniture. We are committed to sustainable practices that protect our environment and contribute positively to our community. Our sustainability initiatives are deeply integrated into every aspect of our operations, from energy use to product lifecycle management.

Solar-Powered Operations

In 2022, we took a significant step forward by transitioning our Melbourne headquarters, showroom and distribution centre to solar power. Our 392kW solar panel system not only powers our operations but also contributes twice the amount of renewable energy back to the grid compared to what we consume. This initiative has made our headquarters 'carbon neutral', offsetting our carbon footprint entirely and supporting a greener future.

Waste Minimisation and Recycling

ur dedication to sustainability is reflected in our rigorous waste minimisation and recycling programs. We collaborate closely with our supply chain partners to reduce waste and recycle materials throughout our manufacturing process. Our efforts include:

Sustainable Packaging: Most of our packaging materials are sourced from recycled products and are designed to be recyclable at the end of their life. We are actively reducing the use of plastics and polystyrene, phasing them out in favour of more sustainable alternatives.

Furniture Delivery: We utilise blanket wrapping—a method that not only protects our products but also reduces waste. These blankets are made from recycled content and are reused extensively, minimising our environmental impact.

End of Life Program: To further our commitment to sustainability, we offer a product return program that allows for the recycling of our furniture at the end of its lifecycle. This program ensures that our products can have a continued positive impact, even after they serve their educational purpose.

Sustainable Materials
and Practices

Sustainable Materials and PracticesVE Furniture is dedicated to using only the best and most sustainable materials available. All our timber and timber materials are sourced exclusively from forests certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). This certification ensures that our products support sustainable forest management practices that preserve biodiversity, benefit local communities and workers, and maintain economic viability.

At VE Furniture, we have phased out the use of chrome in our products, instead opting for powder-coated steel frames which offer greater durability and are better for the environment.

Furthermore, we rigorously select other raw materials based on their durability, safety, and minimal environmental impact. Our commitment extends to ensuring the indoor air quality of classrooms and workplaces is unaffected by our products, adhering to WHO standards for emissions. We use only the highest quality, non-toxic materials, including ‘E0’ grade melamine boards and glues free from volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

Join Our Sustainable Journey

At VE Furniture, sustainability is not just a policy; it's a core part of who we are. We invite you to join us in our mission to create sustainable educational environments that foster learning while protecting our planet. Together, we can make a significant impact for future generations.
