Our Commitments

Environmental

Improving the environmental performance of furniture projects

We’ve been actively reducing our carbon emissions since 2014 and are proud to have held our ISO 14001 environmental management certification since 2015. We’re now working even harder to reach our goal to be Carbon Neutral across all TFP operations by 2025. Beyond our own offices, we have worked with project teams to successfully fulfil environmental accreditations and targets such as BREEAM, WELL, LEED and Net Zero Carbon. Our team is trained to help you understand and consider the environmental impact of your project – including evaluation of the carbon impact of furniture options, to full lifecycle stewardship of your furniture.

We are dedicated to working with manufacturers and suppliers who share our values and are committed to acting ethically and with integrity across all business relationships. Internally, we invest in our employees' mental and physical health with wellness initiatives, including an employee-led wellbeing committee.

Community

We care about the communities in which we work

We are making social investments that benefit the lives of the people and communities our business affects around the world. Where possible, we specify locally sourced products to support local employment and create more inclusive value chains. We are working to make our industry more accessible to all members of society by providing training, internships, mentoring and work experience opportunities, as well as partnering with education providers to support sustainability and diversity goals.

Innovation

Furniture solutions for the circular economy

We recognise that businesses today are making commitments to reduce their carbon impact. We are well-positioned to help you make informed selections that in turn can help drive positive change within the wider furniture industry. Working closely with our vast supply chain, we're evolving with the tools and systems needed to develop low carbon solutions that promote circularity in our industry. We're actively working towards measuring the carbon impact of furniture projects, so we can use data-based evidence to help businesses, designers and project teams make the most sustainable choices.

Partnerships and Initiatives

UK Green Building Council – Gold Leaf Members

We want to minimise our impact on the environment and make a difference fast, and we believe the best way to do that is through collective action. That's why we are UKGBC Gold Leaf members – the industry-led network on a mission to radically improve the sustainability of the built environment. We're also committed to the Race to Zero, an UN-backed global campaign to take rigorous and immediate action to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050 and deliver a healthier, fairer world.

Planet Mark Sustainability Certification since 2014

As Planet Mark members, we're committed to building a sustainable future and reducing our carbon footprint year on year. We've worked hard to implement changes in our offices and across business practices to successfully reach our carbon reduction targets, and we're on track to achieve net zero carbon by 2030. Through Planet Mark, we've protected over an acre of Peru's rainforest thanks to Cool Earth, an NGO that works alongside rainforest communities to end deforestation.

Giving back

We're committed to building a better society, and one of the ways we do this is through fundraising. Every year we support local and national charities that mean a lot to us with events and activities coordinated by our team of charity champions. We've run marathons, climbed mountains, walked, cycled and hosted bake-offs and art auctions to raise funds for a variety of amazing causes, including Cancer Research UK, Magic Breakfast, St Luke's Community Centre, The Mustard Tree and more.
