Creating a sustainable office environment is possible with the help of smart and forward-thinking solutions made with recyclable materials.
Sustainability is one of the main concerns for many employees both in their personal and professional life. That is why many of them are demanding their workplace and office environment to adopt sustainable practices as part of everyday work. Employees are not happy with empty promises and vague statements about their employer’s commitment to sustainability but want direct actions instead. By utilizing smart and sustainable practices at the office, companies can support the well-being of their people and the environment.
Although sustainability means so much more than just the environmental aspects, the well-being of the entire planet is at the top of most people’s minds. Creating an environmentally sustainable office requires decreasing the environmental impact of everyday operations, for example in terms of energy consumption, use of recycled materials, and many other regular practices. All of this includes not just what people do at the workplace, but the office building and its premises as a whole.
In order to improve the sustainability of office buildings, companies can also make sure to locate their offices in buildings that are eligible for sustainability certifications, such as LEED and BREEAM.
Things influencing the environmental impact of offices and office work include:
One way to track the greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) throughout the whole value chain is to divide it across three scopes 1, 2, and 3. Scope 1 of GHG refers to direct energy consumption within the organization. Scope 2 includes indirect emissions that are caused by the production of electricity, heating, and cooling used by the organization. Scope 3 refers to all indirect emissions that occur in the value chain of the organization, such as emissions of the organization’s suppliers and customers.
At Framery, we are committed to reducing our greenhouse gas emissions aligned with the 1.5C temperature goal of the Paris Agreement. Our target is validated by the Science Based Targets initiative.
In addition, our office and production facilities run on 100% renewable electricity. For instance, we have switched to biogas-run trucks and renewable diesel as part of our logistics. The Framery office pods and booths have also been designed to enable companies to run their offices in a more efficient and sustainable way. The annual fossil carbon footprint of the Framery O pod is approximately 1,640 kgCO2e over its 10 years lifetime. As a comparison, this is less than one person’s flight from Helsinki to New York.
With limited material resources at our disposal on this planet, we all need to move from a linear take-make-waste economy towards a circular way of thinking. Circular economy aims to eliminate waste and pollution, circulate products and materials, and regenerate nature to combat climate change as well as the unsustainable production practices and use of resources.
To adopt a circular way of thinking, the products must be designed for a circular economy. This begins at the level of design where focus is brought to maximizing the lifetime and eliminating the creation of waste and pollution at every step in the process. Another central principle of circular economy is that it allows nature to regenerate. Otherwise, we run the risk of extracting resources from nature without allowing it to recover.
At Framery we are making our products fit the circular economy. The modular design of the products enables refurbishing them for extended lifetime. Framery Subscribed is our take on the circular economy business model. With the help of our digital services, use of both the pod and office space can be optimized.
In 2021 we also launched our forward-thinking new Framery One office pod that was designed with a circular economy philosophy. Framery One’s modular design enables upgrading the pod and extending its life, while the pod’s materials are recycled and reused for closed loop material circulation. Rather than dispose of parts and materials after the pod comes to the end of its life, they can be repurposed and repaired, allowing for long-term value retention.
95% of Framery One’s materials can be recycled and the pod is designed to be as easy as possible to update. Thanks to its superior durability and upgradeability, the lifespan of a Framery One office pod is up to 50 years, making it the most sustainable pod in the world.
In certain markets, our office pods can be used for a monthly fee with Framery Subscribed, our product as a service that helps to maximize the pod’s lifetime. In addition to promoting a circular economy, the Subscribed model comes with a lifetime guarantee, relocation services, and an on-demand maintenance service for the pods. With the Subscribed model, Framery pods can serve multiple lifetimes and many different users. Instead of having to produce brand-new products, Framery pods can be refurbished and upgraded to extend their time in active use. Contact us and ask more about Framery Subscribed.
A sustainable office takes into account its environmental impact and aims to create an healthy environment to work in. However, this is only one part of true sustainability. At Framery, we have divided our sustainability efforts into three categories.
