Ecological thinking and behaviour have a long tradition at Bene.They span all our company divisions – from product development, procurement, production and logistics to product recycling. This Bene Sustainability Report documents all or our economic, ecological and social efforts. Today, people and companies have a much greater awareness of their responsibilities towards the environment than they did 20 years ago. In the office furniture sector, noticeably more attention has been paid to environmental questions in recent years, particularly as a result of the proliferation of eco-labels, such as the Blue Angel and the introduction of building certification standards. Because today a sustainable building also needs sustainable contract furniture.
The successful development of sustainable furnishing systems has given us a crucial competitive advantage as a responsible manufacturer. Bene aims to be a reliable partner for sustainable, well-designed office solutions. In the future, we will intensify efforts to promote practical innovations in all product groups.
We have defined the following sustainability goals, among others, for the coming business years:
Sustainability will continue to be an important topic for us in future, especially the question of how to develop strategies that strike a balance between ecological and economic interests.
