We are committed to delivering our customers the very highest quality products whilst also limiting our impact on the environment.
German kitchen manufacturers are known for their environmental credentials. For example Nobilia was the first PEFC-certified kitchen manufacturer in 2009, guaranteeing that all timber products used are sourced from sustainably managed forests. Nobilia also retain the Blue Angel eco-label seal from the German Federal Environmental Agency. This is awarded to environmentally friendly goods and services which reach high standards for health and safety, as well as usability.
Certified management system
On a regular basis, TÜV Rheinland / LGA InterCert reviews and certifies our quality management system according to ISO 9001, our environmental management system according to ISO 14001 and our energy management system according to ISO 50001.
The ISO 9001 norm establishes the standards for a quality management system in order to satisfy customer requirements and ensure product quality. The ISO 14001 norm for environmental management systems helps improve a company’s environmental performance. Companies can continuously improve their energy efficiency with the energy management norm ISO 50001.
Climate agreement of the furniture industry
We put the focus on sustainability at nobilia. The same goes for the subject of greenhouse gas emissions. Here, it is of primary importance to face the responsibility – alongside other manufacturers – that this generation has toward future generations and the environment. In 2016 the DGM (German quality control association) initiated the ”Climate Agreement for the Furniture Industry” and nobilia is an established member. In order for the CO2 footprint to gradually be reduced and ideally neutralised, it is important to nobilia to take a pioneering role in making this topic public and raising awareness.
The entire mail and package dispatch is taken care of by the CO2 neutral GOGREEN services of the German postal service and DHL. With this, nobilia offsets the CO2 emissions created during transport. The offset is certified through an independent certification company (Societé Général de Surveillance, SGS) according to ISO 14064.
