Stylecraft has been providing furniture of original, contemporary design for over 60 years. First established in Melbourne, Australia in 1953, Stylecraft now has 8 showrooms around Australia and Asia, representing over 20 exclusive European and Australian brands.
Stylecraft are committed to being a leader of sustainable practice within the furniture industry. We understand our social and environmental responsibilities and are constantly working to develop more sustainable and responsible production of our products. We strive to achieve these goals by complying with relevant legislation and regulations and continually improving work practices and procedures that affect the environment.
We are a longstanding supporter of Australian design and manufacturing and for over 20 years we have been committed to local talent, design and manufacturers. We work with these local designers and manufacturers with the goal of supporting the Australian design community long-term and reducing the impact upon the environment related to packaging and shipping.
Additionally, we prioritise suppliers and manufacturers who are committed to sustainable practices, those with ISO14001 certification and products carrying Australian & European Eco Label accreditation enabling credits towards Greenstar, LEED & IWBI WELL certification schemes.
Stylecraft are aware that as we employ more staff, open new showrooms and grow our business, so too does our carbon footprint. In 2007, Stylecraft became Australia’s first carbon neutral commercial furniture company and over the past 10 years we have been neutralising our carbon emissions by purchasing green energy credits through South Pole Group (formerly Climate Friendly™). The carbon finance from the purchase of these credits has supported the protection of 7,666 hectares of native Tasmanian Forest by providing incentives to avoid logging.
Stylecraft’s long term goals related to meaningful environmental practice and reduction of carbon footprint will continue to evolve and progress through a focus on due diligence and remaining up-to-date with the latest environmental responsible opportunities.
In November 2017, Stylecraft were proud to formalise our commitment to environmental and social responsibility by becoming a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact. We are committed to implementing the UN Global Goals principles as part of our strategy, culture and day to day practice
