environmental responsibility

Orrefors Kosta Boda AB has been ISO-certified by the independent assessment company Qvalify as regards the design, manufacture, purchasing, sales and distribution of art and utility glass. We meet the requirements of ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004.

The environmental certification ISO 14001:2004 means more efficient use of materials, energy and waste management, the involvement of all staff in environmental work, development of knowledge about environment and quality, systematics and documentation of our environmental impact. Quite simply, we take responsibility for the environmental concerns of our customers, staff, owners and other stakeholders.

The quality certification ISO 9001:2008 means that we continuously develop our processes, quality, management and staff in order to work preventively rather than correctively. This quality certification also involves enhancing our environmental certification.
