About Lista Office LO / Sustainability / Respecting mother earth and our natural resources

Respecting mother earth and our natural resources

Ecological sustainability is part of our nature. That’s why we manufacture our office furniture here in Switzerland, in modern production facilities using sustainable materials.


Steel is natural, robust and durable. We leverage these qualities to minimise material use without compromising on stability. Our new product lines all integrate the Cradle to Cradle Certified® design principle. This model, inspired by nature, describes a cycle in which raw materials circulate from „cradle to cradle“ in a potentially infinite loop. Our LO Next and LO Extend ranges have been Cradle to Cradle Certified® since 2018.

Long lifecycle

Our sustainable designs and high-quality materials ur products will enjoy a long service life. But even when, after around twenty years, they come to the end of their service life, our products have not reached the end of their lifecycle. We offer our customers a minor or major overhaul on the furniture, restoring its original sparkle. We also offer an innovative returns scheme for used office furniture. Depending on the condition of the furniture, we either recondition it for secondhand sale in our furniture exchange, or arrange for environmentally friendly disposal.


Innovative models

Lista Office LO products are also planet friendly during use: for example, we’ve halved the energy consumption for the newest generation of our electrically operated standing desk. We also offer an unpowered alternative, the LO Manus. We are thus making an active contribution to the 2000- Watt society.

Our contribution to a sustainable working world

Environmental sustainability as part of the design

We see environmental sustainability as an integral part of our work and therefore a central part of the design.

Being ready for the future yields maximised profits

Being economically sustainable means prioritising long-term success over fast gains.

10 Points for the Future

At Lista Office LO, taking a responsible attitude towards people and the environment has tradition. Our positive environmental balance manifests itself in the long life cycle of our products, the recyclability of steel and the manufacturing process, which is based on systematic environmental management according to ISO 14001.
