Sustainability

care

From saying no to plastic bottles and using filtering tap water in our office to promoting concepts of biophilic design, our fourth pillar – CARE – strongly stands for our commitment to fostering the well-being of our team and our clients.

OFIS continuously works on environmental improvements in its choice of suppliers or brand partners as we call them. Most of OFIS's brand partners have a high priority and documentation of their environmental performance and organizations impact on the surroundings. Documentation is verified according to the world known standards as ISO 14000, EMAS & LEED.

Be it Flooring solutions or Office work space, we at OFIS will be pleased to provide all required and necessary documentation regarding these issues, and will appreciate if it will form part of the final decision material, due to the fact that most of our brand partners are "best performers" in the area of sustainability.
