At Kaiser Kitchens, our unwavering commitment to sustainability and safety is not just a mere aspiration; it’s an integral part of our manufacturing DNA. We believe that responsible care for our planet and the well-being of our clients should always be at the forefront of what we do. Senior Designer Julia Eissing explains our sustainable practices and dedication to safety.

Sustainability Beyond Measure
Sustainability is a way of life. Kaiser Kitchens stands at the vanguard of the kitchen industry, setting the gold standard for sustainability. We understand that the choices we make today have a profound impact on tomorrow’s world.

Our journey towards sustainability encompasses a multifaceted approach. Energy efficiency, emission reduction, and waste disposal are just a few of the pivotal aspects we prioritise to ensure Kaiser’s sustainability. We take our responsibility to conserve the environment seriously, and we are committed to continually enhancing our environmental performance.

Materials that Speak for the Earth
Our materials are a testament to our commitment to sustainability. We source materials that are not just eco-friendly but also carbon-neutral and energy-efficient. These materials are meticulously selected to be certified for healthy living, ensuring that Kaiser Kitchens are not just beautiful but also promote a healthy lifestyle.

When it comes to our finishes, we’re equally discerning. We proudly utilise water-based paints, and some of our lacquer laminate fronts contain a remarkable high recycled content, exceeding 50%. To further minimize our ecological footprint, we procure innovative recycled products from a trusted manufacturer in the North-Rhine Westphalia region of Germany. This close partnership ensures shorter delivery routes, reduced resource consumption, and uncompromised quality.

Pioneering Climate Neutrality
Kaiser Kitchens holds the distinction of being the first kitchen furniture manufacturer with a completely climate-neutral product portfolio. This remarkable achievement is certified by the Focus Zukunft institute, which rigorously quantifies greenhouse gas emissions across the entire product life cycle, from inception to the hands of our valued customers.

Awards and Certifications
Our commitment to sustainability and safety has earned Kaiser Kitchens numerous prestigious awards and certifications. These accolades include Carb 2 compliance, the GS symbol for safety from TÜV Rheinland, and the coveted “Golden M” award from the German Furniture Quality Association (DGM). The “Golden M” is a testament to our high-quality standards and our exemplary efforts in health and environmental protection. DGM’s testing criteria include the latest quality, environmental, and emission standards, with a particular focus on durability, stability, and manufacturing quality. They also review pollutant emissions and safety aspects, and only awards its “Golden M” quality mark to furniture that meets all requirements in full. 

Better for You, Better for the Environment
Kaiser Kitchens is not just a manufacturer; we are advocates for sustainability and safety. Our dedication to preserving our planet and ensuring your well-being is unwavering, and we invite you to join us in this transformative journey towards a better future, one Kaiser kitchen at a time.
