The path to sustainability
The 60th edition of the Salone del Mobile was under the banner of sustainability. A theme that is not only linked to the future, but also and above all to the present. Far from those who make only a slogan about sustainability, there is the Tuscan company Stosa Cucine, engaged in a revolutionary path towards real and tangible green, with the first kitchen produced with standard FSC®-certified furniture.
Since 2009, the company has been pursuing a rigorous quality control protocol, with a careful selection of the supplier base and the construction of a production chain that is attentive to the health of the planet. Stosa’s green revolution aims to convert all kitchen models into FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council) certified products.
What is the FSC® certification
Obtaining FSC® Italia certification means seeing the company policies aimed at the responsible use of forests and plantations from which the timber come from verified sites. It’s not only the health of our planet that requires the company to pay more attention to sustainability, but so are the ethical choices of consumers, who are increasingly oriented to purchase from virtuous companies. FSC® Italia is the non-profit association, born in harmony with the objectives of FSC® International, which aims to promote responsible forest management. Stosa was the first kitchen company to market fully FSC®-certified lines, a commitment that earned the company the prestigious Communication Award.
Given that the difference between a goal and a dream is to set a date, it’s encouraging to already be able to say that starting from this year Stosa Cucine can offer series models with FSC® certified furniture, made with raw materials from a supply chain that supports responsible forest management, without price increases or design limits for the final consumer. The pact for a sustainable future was therefore signed.
The pact for the future of Stosa Cucine and FSC® Italia
Eurocucina 2022 saw the consolidation of the partnership between Stosa Cucine and FSC® Italia. In a streaming talk on Instagram, held within the 900 square meters of the Stosa stand, the two companies explained the importance of Sustainable Design for Living, not only in terms of the supply chain but also in terms of attention to workers.
Together with Alexia Schrott (Marketing Manager FSC Italy), Mario Perozzi (Senior Project Designer STOSA CUCINE) on my right and Vincenzo Amato (Brand Manager STOSA CUCINE) on my left, it was reaffirmed how much sustainability has become an ethical imperative.
