2016 Resource Protection Certificate

Maximum product protection with minimum environmental impact – this is our credo when it comes to packaging. It goes without saying that we believe that not only our closet and room divider systems but also our planet’s resources should be protected. To this end, Interseroh GmbH regularly carries out audits based on the Fraunhofer Institute’s UMSICHT study to identify how much of a contribution recycling of our transport packaging is making to saving primary resources and avoiding greenhouse gas emissions. The “resources SAVED by recycling” study and our personal 2016 Resource Protection Certificate confirm that we were able to achieve a new best performance record last year. By returning raumplus packaging to the recycling flow we were able to avoid 20,903 kilograms of greenhouse gases and save 177 metric tons of resources in 2016. This is equivalent to the weight of 417 apple trees – an image that is as inspiring as it is interesting and inspires us to continue to work hard to act responsibly. Towards our customers and the environment.

raumplus accessory

raumplus listens to its female customers. And they kept on asking for a smart purse/bag storage option that would safely protect different size and format purses and bags from kinks, scratches, and tears in the leather. The purse/bag holder we developed in response has become a firm favorite with the ladies since being launched at the IMM 2016 in Cologne. The cross between a hanger and a specially shaped metal bracket offers non-slip storage for purses, no matter what the material. All you have to do is hang the purse handle or shoulder strap over the rectangular hook attached to the clothes hanger top that can be hung on the clothes rail in your closet or interior system. Making it child’s play to quickly find the right purse to go with your outfit; get hold of it easily; and then put it back into the closet, where it will be protected from scratches and dust. Good organization that not only benefits the eye but also the closet, since there is no longer any risk of shelf surfaces being scratched as purses are pushed or pulled along them. The 2-piece set, available in Dark Bronze or Silver options, is a true professional, even if it does nothing but hang around all day.

 Climate Protection Certificate

The greatest possible degree of product protection while putting the least possible strain on the environment – this is our mission when it comes to packaging. That this strategy is producing results has now been confirmed by Interseroh GmbH, the company that recycles our transport packaging for us.
Based on an in-depth study by the prestigious Fraunhofer UMSICHT Institute on the reduction of greenhouse gases Inteseroh has established that our recycling efforts last year resulted in a 26,647.80 kilogram reduction in greenhouses gases. This is equivalent to the average CO² emissions of a car driving 180,000 kilometers. The raw materials that we have recycled join what is known as the materials flow, thus not only avoiding unnecessary CO² emissions but also saving an additional almost 36,000 kg of resources. We view the corresponding “2012 Climate Protection Certificate” that has been issued to us as both a confirmation of our activities in this field and a motivation to continue and expand them. We invite all our partners and business contacts to join us in these efforts.

Named products

Some 15,000 doors pass through the hands of our six door builders every year. And every one of them bears the signature of the person who manufactured it. We don’t do this because we want to market our doors as pieces of art with the cachet of a “limited edition”. Nonetheless every one of these custom-fit, hand-made doors is a unique product and a beautiful piece of craftsmanship whose creator deserves to be named. In addition to this, the fact that the doors do not remain anonymous means that our employees noticeably identify more strongly with the product. Which is no surprise since everyone wants to show that their skill and know-how does credit to their name. And you would sign up for that program too, wouldn’t you?
