How DFI-Geisler takes care of the environment

We have planted the first company tree on Mors

As a company, we have a responsibility to give back to nature each time we use something from nature in our products.
This is the reason behind planting our local DFI-GEISLER company forest.
This is a deciduous forest of 33,500 trees across approximately 9 hectares.
The idea behind the forest arose after we decided some years ago to plant a tree for every wooden worktop we sold. We started in Khasi Hills, India.
But we wanted to try doing it locally.
To benefit the area that we call home,
namely an island in the Limfjord called Mors!
… and we succeeded

Water recycling

In June 2020, we began using our new water recycling facility. The system includes a buffer tank with a capacity of 17,000 litres. This means that, in the future, we will be able to recycle water equivalent to the annual consumption of 100 households.
Our aim is to reduce the water consumption of the cutting tools in our stone department by at least 80%. This will not merely benefit the environment; it will have a favourable impact on our bottom line. Did anyone say “win-win”?

Recycling is common sense

DFI-Geisler produces around 60,000 laminate worktop sets a year. All materials left over from production are sent to Djursland, where Kronospan – Novopan Træindustri converts the waste to new chipboard. This is then returned to us on Mors to be made into new worktops. And so on … and so on …
Today, we use and recycle almost all our timber waste. Thus, eight out of ten DFI-Geisler laminate worktops have “lived a former life”.

Greener worktops

DFI-Geisler was the first company in Denmark exclusively to use FSC®-certified chipboard in laminate worktop production. And since we manufacture almost 60,000 worktop sets a year, this is a huge step towards even more sustainable and transparent production.
Besides our laminate worktops, our solid wood worktops are also FSC®-certified. Thus, we help protect our nature and ensure social conditions in the forests from which the timber is sourced.
