Drew Carmichael, Director of Recycle Scotland, said:
As Boralex makes their mark on Scotland, we are thrilled to have incorporated recycled furniture within their new office. By prioritising recycled and reused products, this project is a testament to how businesses can achieve an office space that reflects their brand values while minimising their environmental impact.
Kari Clouston, Senior Project Manager at Boralex said:
Protecting the environment is at the heart of the Boralex Corporate Social Responsibility Commitment and underpins everything that we do. It was therefore fundamental to our new office build to integrate the principles of the circular economy into as many parts of the project as possible. Using Recycle Scotland to supply much of our furniture was an ideal solution. The quality and choice available were excellent and we’re delighted with the finished space.
The project is part of Recycle Scotland’s ‘We have a solution’ campaign which offers every furniture item the opportunity for a second life to reduce waste. By providing Boralex with a sustainable workplace furniture solution, using high-quality recycled furniture and reupholstering items to match the new space, Recycle Scotland has diverted office furniture from unnecessarily reaching landfill.
As a division of Space Solutions, Recycle Scotland provides sustainable and environmental furnishing strategies within the workplace. In 2022, Recycle Scotland worked with businesses across Scotland to save 255,000kg of furniture from landfill, reusing or recycling over 97% of furniture into component parts.
