Our commitment to the future of our planet means doing all we can—today. At RT London, a sustainable approach to the environment begins with thoughtful design that withstands every day wear and tear, providing the best possible solutions for generations to come. So, you can depend on our furnishings for a lasting, sustainable life-cycle value. Purchasing products that endure is sustainable behavior that benefits everyone.
We realize the value of keeping waste out of landfills. Melamine panels are ECC™ certified, 100% recycled and recovered wood fiber (pre-consumer), which saves trees and avoids landfills.
Sustainable Forestry Initiative
Using Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) Certified wood products for all of our case goods is one of the many ways we help protect the environment’s natural resources.
In an effort to improve indoor air quality, we’re compliant with Phase 1 and 2 of the California Air Resources Board (CARB) Initiative that aims to eliminate the use of added formaldehyde in sheet good products. Our state-of-the-art UV finishes also emit no harmful VOCs.
To ensure our production methods tread lightly, we take a whole system approach to reducing energy consumption, emissions, and waste. For example, we have a rigorous monitoring program in place to track and measure Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) emissions from our finishing operations; the plan is to measure our progress weekly to ensure continued improvement. In addition, all wood and paper waste generated from our plants, offices, and shipping activities is recycled. And, by having local and regional suppliers for raw manufacturing goods, we keep transit emissions to an absolute minimum.

To create our case goods, we use SFI certified wood from carefully managed forests in North America.
We comply with the CARB Initiative, which is a mandatory regulation in California that aims to eliminate the use of added formaldehyde in sheet good products. Plus, our UV finishes won’t emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Both of these initiatives improve indoor air quality..
We offer several upholstery choices that are made with 100% Terratex® polyester. Many of our textiles are woven with renewable resources like solar and wind energy.
