Net Zero Carbon Office Furniture

Our mission is to substantially reduce the carbon emissions and cost of offices.

We supply high quality, low carbon furniture (the biggest source of carbon emissions in a commercial building [1]) and provide design and consulting services to help create interiors that hit your Net Zero Carbon targets.

Our 300+ projects to date prove that offices can be beautiful, sustainable and cost less.

Net Zero Carbon Furniture Supply

You can’t achieve Net Zero Carbon with furniture made from virgin materials. Our proven 4-step approach uses the Circular Economy to reduce emissions, waste and costs, while creating social value.

This includes exclusive furniture ranges made from waste materials.

Rype’s furniture sourcing service includes sustainable delivery & installation, project management, take-back, leasing and multi-life furniture management.

Remanufacturing

Remanufacturing is a quality-controlled engineering process that takes the durable elements of an office furniture item (such as steel frames), checks and refurbishes them, and then rebuilds the item around them.

The result looks and performs as new, but at a significant saving, both economically and environmentally.

Our in-house remanufacturing means we know how to unlock the full potential of furniture for multiple lives (and avoids intermediary margins).

Social Impact

We employ long-term unemployed with disabilities in our core business, work with local SME partners including the Merthyr Tydfil Institute for the Blind, and work with formerly homeless and at risk of homelessness on delivery and installation of large London projects.

Our distributed remanufacturing model creates employment in local communities for those furthest from the workforce.
