Sustainability

Being a sustainable business means taking care of our environment, our people and our local communities. Tsunami Axis takes seriously the responsibilities upon our organisation within these areas. We are conscious that both urgency and commitment are required to positively impact our environment and communities within our sphere of influence. Within our organisation our strategy is to engage our team members across all aspects of the business and active markets to enable everyone to play a part and magnify our impact.

Our sustainability strategy is one of continuous learning and understanding, leading to clarity of vision and impactful strategies, which are driven by our stakeholders and participated in by all our employees.

Environment

As one of the largest contract office furniture consultancy lead dealers within Europe, we are working with our supply partners to help them improve their sustainability practices and reduce their carbon emissions using science-based targets. We continually gather data from our supply partners to provide visibility for our clients to confidently make choices that both reduce and negate emissions by selecting sustainable furniture manufacturers for their projects.

In addition, Tsunami Axis has formed a new division called Future Elements. With innovations in naturally grown and recycled materials, (both second life and re-purposed waste) increasing exponentially, Future Elements are harnessing these new materials for applications throughout commercial interiors to drive down the demand for single-life and less sustainable alternatives. For more information on Future Elements, please contact Nick at n.laughton@future-elements.com

We are proud to be carbon neutral as certified by PAS 2060 which allows us to measure our greenhouse gas emissions against a globally recognised standard. As part of the process, our data is externally verified and our emissions are reduced and offset in a meaningful way under a certified scheme. We are committed to being fully net zero, as defined by the Carbon Trust.

Our environmental systems have been ISO 14001 certified since 2010.

We have an EcoVadis score of over 56 which puts us among the top 25 percent of the 90,000 companies assessed. EcoVadis looks at how well a company has integrated the principles of sustainability into their business and management systems.

All furniture procurement on our projects is guided by specifications set out in the Furniture Industry Research Association (FIRA) Furniture Specification document. The specifications include safety, performance, ergonomics, sustainability and the environment.

Community

We strive to engage with the communities surrounding our offices through charity fundraising, undertaking environmental initiatives and investing in young people as future environmental pioneers. Our previous projects include helping to build Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice and taking part in Sleep in the Park raising money for homelessness charities.

People

We work with our suppliers and sub-contractors to monitor human factors within our supply chain, looking at working conditions and the requirements of the modern slavery act.

To ensure that we are working with more diverse manufacturers, we are members of MSD UK which brings together innovative and high-growth ethnic minority businesses with corporations committed to creating inclusive and diverse supply chains.

At Tsunami Axis, our employees receive diversity and equality training and our HR policies cover all protected characteristics to ensure that everyone who works for us feels safe, protected and seen.

I’m making sure that we keep sustainability at the forefront of everything we do: from where we source our energy to supporting and advising our customers on sustainable ff&e procurement. Having worked in the charity sector I’m also passionate about working with charities and local communities and particularly investing in young people through workshops and apprenticeship opportunities.
