According to the definition appeared in the report «Our Common Future» published in 1987 by the World Commission on Environment and Development (Bruntland Committee), eco-friendly development “meets the needs of the present without compromising the future generations resources”. The concept of sustainability is connected to the compatibility between development of business activities and environmental safeguard. Our first goal is to realize an economic development in the total respect of the environment. The path for achieving sustainability, as summarized in the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, represents a challenge that involves welfare, social and right to work in order to create a system that generates fair and democratic conditions supported by ethic and human thinking.

EPA - Environment Protection Agency has adopted the regulation about the formaldehyde emission of composite wood products. This regulation, coming from the US, foresees formaldehyde emission limits set by the CARB “California Air Resources Board”. Quadrifoglio is going to adapt its internal standards in order to achieve both an extremely high level of products quality and an environment protection.
The company has spontaneously decided to use the ecological panel for its production. It is a unique panel in the world that is used just in the furniture industry, made of 100% recycled wood, basically no tree has been fallen for its production. Furthermore, thanks to advanced technologies, it also respects the formaldehyde emission levels of the current legislation.

The company uses an efficient waste recycling system that aims to complete disposal of each component. Thanks to a well-organized internal network, TOKA a.s. is able to guarantee a totally trackable and registered disposal service, disposing of both civil and industrial waste: PLASTIC, GLASS, PAPER, POLYSTYRENE FOAM, PACKAGING, IRON/STEEL, DANGEROUS WASTE, SHAVINGS, SAWDUST.
The disposal of shavings resulting from production waste, is given to specialized companies, that transform them in new panels, through special technologies. In addition, sawdust waste produced in our company is properly disposed by another specialized company that use them as fuel.
Through research and development we are trying to move from a linear to a circular production model. This is possible thanks to some initiatives that we are testing, in order to guarantee the efficient disposal of every component of our products at the end of the production cycle. It is possible to recycle the 100% of our items, with a low environmental impact. For example we collaborate with Valdelia in France.
The production site and the new headquarters are equipped with a cutting-edge LED lighting system which allows considerable saving in electrical energy (almost 80% compared with the traditional fluo lamps). All lights are equipped with photo-sensors that come into operation when people come into a room and automatically adjust according to the intensity of the environment light. The entire electrical lighting system is controlled by domotics (KNX) that allows switching on and off.
In order to reduce the excessive consumption of plastic bottles by employees and visitors. We’re going to introduce a refill distribution system giving a personal aluminium bottle to all employees. Moreover, coffee and water dispensers will have plastic-free recycled paper cups to reduce the waste of this crushing material.

The company’s purpose is not only to produce quality products and to respect the environment, but also to guarantee the safety of all collaborators, who spend their time for these goals every single day.
