Environmental

At Screen Solutions we have always had an ethos of responsible and sustainable trading. Testament to this is our ISO14001 and FISP (Furniture Industry Sustainability Programme) accreditations as well as our long established links with our local community.

This commitment to responsible and sustainable trading was reinforced when in 2008 we launched the markets first fully recyclable screen range called Element. This range sits under a sub brand we created called Re>Live.

From the board to the shop floor we are all committed to reducing the effect Screen Solutions has on the environment and its neighbours. It is simply the way we do business.

Re>live

Re-live recognises the ever growing importance of responsible design and manufacture and represents our contribution to ecological sustainability. Buying from the Re-live range guarantees you are making an investment in high quality, sustainably produced office solutions. These products have been engineered specifically to reduce the carbon footprint of your office yet still incorporate cutting edge design. As 'green' technology develops and our understanding of sustainability and the environment grows, so our design and manufacturing processes will evolve.
