Life Cycle Assessment
The Let's B is manufactured in Sarrebourg, France, by Steelcase. Thanks to the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) method, Steelcase can quantify the product's environmental impacts to set the stage for further improvements. This method, based on ISO 14044, is selected by the European Union for environmental evaluation. It allows us to measure the environmental impact of our products throughout their lifecycle.
Let's B Life Cycle
Let's B is made from 23% recycled materials and contains no hazardous materials (no PVC, no Chrome, no Mercury and no Lead). The foam does not contain CFC and HCFC. The packaging consists of cardboard (manufactured from recycled material) and LDPE film (Low Density Polyethylene) that contains 30% recycled material. Paper and packaging uses water based inks without solvent.
Let's B was designed to be made with minimal waste, energy consumption and environmental impact. Powder-coat painting is free of heavy metals. No gluing processes are used in assembly, and all urethane foam is water-based.
30 % of the Let's B task chairs are delivered outside Europe in the Ecosmart version that requires 1/3 less volume for packaging, thus less energy for shipping.
To maximise Let's B's working life, back and arms can be added or replaced.
End of life
Let's B is 97 % recyclable by weight. Let's B can be easily disassembled using only common hand tools. Note: for safety reasons, disassembly of the spring mechanism and pneumatic cylinder (gas lift) should be carried out only by properly trained maintenance personnel. Parts weighing more than 50 g are clearly labelled for recycling. The cardboard and LDPE film used for packaging are suitable for recycling.
