As part of our ongoing effort to create products that ease their impact on the environment through better indoor climates and extensive durability, we’re now introducing the Declare Living Building Challenge label and GreenTag GreenRate certificate to a range of Muuto furniture.
“We see an increasing demand for environmental certificates, particularly in the office and hospitality segments. At Muuto, our ambition is to add new perspectives to Scandinavian design and, as part of this, doing so with lessened environmental impact. As a natural extension of this, we’re continuously working to validate the environmental aspects of our products, allowing for them to be used in projects with a sustainable focus as well,” says Muuto CEO Anders Cleemann.
A number of Muuto’s furniture* are now Living Building Challenge Compliant as part of Muuto’s participation in Declare—a label that discloses the ingredients to show low level of worst in class materials prevalent in the building industry and low VOC emissions to contributes a healthy indoor climate.
In short, the Declare Label answers three questions:
— Where does the product come from?
— What is it made of?
— Where does it go at the end of its life?

Alongside the Living Building Challenge Label, we’re also proud to introduce the GreenTag GreenRate Level C certificate, a rating system for sustainable products that is recognized by official building standards in both Australia and New Zealand.
The GreenTag GreenRate examines the aspects of biodiversity in material sourcing, corporate social responsibility through social and environmental laws, ensures that the product contributes to healthy indoor climates through acceptable levels of volatile organic compounds as well as examining the expected lifespan of the product through strength and durability testing.
