During Eastside development process we considered environmental impacts of our decisions at every stage of the product's lifecycle.
Life Cycle Assessment
The Eastside 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.
Eastside Life Cycle
Eastside contains no hazardous materials (i.e. no Lead, Mercury, Cadmium, Chrome VI, (seating) or CFC or HCFC in the foam, no dangerous materials such as PVC, and no hazardous flame retardants such as halogenated flame retardants. Eastside contains 16% recycled materials, by weight. The packaging consists of cardboard, PE foam and LDPE film (Low Density Polyethylene), both containing at least 30% recycled material. To reduce overall material usage, Eastside weighs only 6.3 kg and is made with a minimum number of low energy materials. Paper and packaging use water based inks without solvent.
The production site in Sarrebourg has an ISO 14001 certified environmental management system. Eastside was designed to be made with minimal waste, energy consumption and environmental impact. Powder-coat painting is VOC-free and free of heavy metals; unused paint that does not attach to the product can be directly reused in the process. No gluing processes are used in assembly, and all urethane foam is water-based.
Eastside is lightweight and delivered stacked. Minimised packaging weight and volume help us improve filling rates and thus require less energy for shipping.
Eastside was designed for a long product life, with replaceable parts and textiles that are easy to change. There are no toxic substances in our eco-labelled textiles. Maintenance information is available in the User's manual.
End of life
Eastside is 98% recyclable by weight. The cardboard, PE foam and LDPE film used for packaging are 100% recyclable. Eastside is quick and easy to disassemble using normal hand tools. It contains only a few different materials, making sorting for recycling easy. Plastic parts are clearly labelled for easy sorting and an effective recycling.
Eastside Environmental Certifications
With Eastside we can provide an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD), an environmental declaration according to the objectives of ISO 14025, based on Life Cycle Assessment (ISO 14044). The purpose of an EPD is to communicate clear and transparent information about a product's impacts on the environment at all stages of its life cycle.
