Sustainable Development

Proof is better than rhetoric!


At Tikamoon, we’ve always had a green heart. It’s why we’ve been offering natural solid-wood furniture since 2008.


While today, many claim sustainability – sometimes in a way that’s vague or unproven – we remain faithful to our values, communicating clearly and transparently:

1. We choose to display ‘sustainable wood’ only on FSC®-certified items.
2. We choose to display the ecological range of our products in complete transparency.
3. We choose to measure our performance in terms of carbon footprint and life-cycle assessments.
4. We choose to commit to targets expressed in terms of figures and deadlines.


Below are the elements of TikaGreen : a unique sustainable-development plan, based on tangible evidence and certified by recognised partners.

A method validated by recognised organisations

In order to ensure an authentic figure-based approach, we’ve joined forces with recognised partners. Our approach focuses on four steps: measure, improve, certify, dialogue.

Measure

Development of the Carbon Footprint with Carbon 4

See our Carbon Statement
(in progress, available October 2020)


Lifespan Assessment

See our Lifespan Assessment
(in progress, available November 2020)

Improve

We are signatories of the UN Global Compact pact.

We have set goals for progressing in each area based on the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

 

Certify

We are members of FSC®, which certifies responsible and sustainable management of forests: biodiversity and social and economic benefit for stakeholders.

We have been FSC® Chain of Custody certified since 2018.


See our FSC® partnership

Dialogue

As another means of boosting our TikaGreen plan, we joined WWF’s Entreprendre pour la Planète group.

We financially support WWF projects.

Tikamoon eco-criteria: our performance in complete transparency

We have defined six environmental criteria for measuring the sustainable development performance of our products. This has enabled us to assess the current situation and to set ourselves targets:

Eco-criteria Benefits 2020 situation 2023 targets
1. Solid wood Biological material, high recyclability, energy savings 80% 95%
2. No composite materials No MDF, no particle board 94% 100%
3. Resource savings Design minimises waste and maximises reuse of offcuts 80% 100%
4. Traditional assembly Furniture assembled by hand by our cabinetmakers, ensuring product strength and longevity 98% 100%
5. High repairability Longevity due to the ease of renovation of solid wood and the availability of spare parts 80% 95%
6. FSC® wood Responsible and sustainable management of forests: biodiversity and social and economic benefit 20% 50%

as a percentage of wood furniture items

The Tikamoon eco-rating: a tool to help you compare and choose your furniture

Based on the following six eco-criteria, we have designed an eco-rating: a grade of between one and four leaves. This rating has been designed to help you choose your products with integrity.

Eco-criteria Benefits
1. Solid wood CO2 capture, high recyclability, energy savings
2. No composite materials No MDF, no particle board  
3. Resource savings Design minimises waste and maximises reuse of offcuts  
4. Traditional assembly Furniture assembled by hand by our cabinetmakers, ensuring product strength and longevity    
5. High repairability Longevity due to the ease of renovation of solid wood and the availability of spare parts    
6. FSC® wood Responsible and sustainable management of forests: biodiversity and social and economic benefit
