The current trend towards the home office offers new market opportunities that Viasit is consistently exploiting: Above all through special home office products that are well received by the market, and which reach customers via new strategic logistics concepts.
Viasit has chosen the DPD Group as its partner for the delivery of disassembled packaged products to the customer's door. This company not only stands out for its reliability and cost-effectiveness, but also scored points with its clear sustainability concept. With 45,000 tonnes of CO2 saved per year, it is the number 1 in the CEP sector and delivers all parcels 100% climate-neutral, without any additional costs for the customer.
"The climate-neutral parcel transport by DPD fits perfectly into our sustainability concept, which we have been pursuing for years and which guides us to continuously analyse and optimise our ecological footprint," explains Managing Director Thomas Schmeer. Sustainability has long been a corporate goal for Viasit, which is pursued with intelligent solutions along the entire value chain, starting with eco¬logical product design and ending with the return of chairs at the end of their life. "Logistics in particular can make an important contribution here, be it through the purchase of increasingly low-emission trucks, or the use of environmentally friendly transport packaging concepts, or even the selection of particularly environmentally conscious logistics partners such as DPD," adds logistics manager Florian Karcher.
Investment in sustainability: Viasit is LEVEL-certified
Since February 2021, Viasit has been certified according to the LEVEL standard of the Federation of the European Office Furniture Industry (FEMB). LEVEL is an independent, comprehensive standard that takes a holistic approach to sustainability assessment. Not only individual products or the behaviour of the company are examined, but all aspects, from products to production and the organisational framework conditions in the company to the complete supply chain are scrutinised.
The catalogue of requirements specifically examines the environmental impacts that the company has in the four aspects of materials, energy, atmosphere and on the health of people and the ecosystem, and evaluates them according to a standardised, three-level point system.
For customers and market partners the LEVEL label means more transparency in a confusing variety of sustainability seals and standards which are awarded on the basis of different criteria, sometimes in competition with each other.
