Goal 15 - Life on land

"Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss."

"We feel a responsibility towards coming generations - therefore we produce furniture that promotes a sustainable development. We solely use certified wood, we constantly strive towards minimising the use of materials and encourage re-use, and we value a sustainable forestry. Our view is that if you buy new furniture from us, you also buy a future."

Third generation at Albin i Hyssna and until 2018 the CEO of the company. 

In 1920, Albin Johansson began to manufacture furniture in Hyssna, thereof the company name Albin i Hyssna. The company soon celebrates 100 years, and its corporate sustainability philosophy has been ongoing since the beginning. Albin i Hyssna feels a responsibility towards coming generations and therefore manufactures furniture that promotes an ecological sustainable development.

Apart from using 100 % certified wood, the company also saws its own parts and continuously strives to minimise the consumption of wood. Albin i Hyssna also encourages its customers to recycling. For instance, the company offers to restore their own furniture. The aim is to manufacture furniture with as long lifetime as possible.
