Furnishing Idea is the portal dedicated to the furniture and furnishing industry, designed to bring together different professionals such as architects, designers, carpenters, furniture makers and manufacturers active in the furniture market who represent the reference point in terms of innovation and quality of the product offered. On the other hand, the portal aims to provide a valid information service focused on products, projects, events and fairs and everything that revolves around the world of components, semi-finished products and accessories for the furniture industry.


The portal is divided into different sections where you can explore the different products according to different categories, get in touch with manufacturers, download catalogues to keep up with industry trends and watch videos of interviews with the best professionals and manufacturers.

In the companies section there is an overview of the manufacturers registered on our portal, divided by product category, where you can contact us for any request. Our portal also has a special catalogues section to allow professionals and operators in the sector to view in a practical way all the catalogues relating to the various products (furniture hardware, upholstery materials, furniture paints, etc.). In addition, to allow easy consultation of the products, our portal has reserved a product section, organized by categories, where you can find out about the technical characteristics, materials and functionality of each product. The video section, on the other hand, presents numerous video interviews given by professionals and manufacturers that report news, insights and informative content on the best technologies in the sector.


In addition, to keep you constantly informed you can also consult our Journal section which contains all the Furnishing Idea magazines dedicated to the furniture and furnishing industry, such as the edition dedicated to Sicam or Interzum, two of the most important trade fairs in the sector.

Thanks to the trust placed in us by many manufacturers, our portal is now recognized both nationally and internationally. In fact, there are already many internationally recognized and established companies in the sector, including the AIPEF group (Italian Flexible Expanded Polyurethanes Companies) which promotes scientific information on the use of flexible polyurethane foam in the sectors in which it is used.

Rehau Sustainability Report: the company consistently pursues its ambitious path

Rehau has published its Sustainability Report, covering the year 2022, describing the sustainable activities carried out by Rehau Industries and Rehau Automotive, including achieved and future targets. 

The Report shows a significant improvement in the reduction of CO2 emissions and the use of recycled materials, for which the company has already aligned with the requirements of the European Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRS) and the EU Taxonomy, which will only become mandatory for Rehau from 2025. 

"This report shows that sustainability is firmly embedded in our corporate DNA and that we have already achieved a lot." - stressed Uwe H. Böhlke, CEO of Rehau Industries SE & Co. KG, and Markus Distelhoff, CEO of Rehau Automotive SE & Co. KG - "However, this is only the beginning. We will continue to strive to drive positive change in our industry and society by consistently pursuing our ambitious path."


Positive results and ambitious targets 

Rehau's Sustainability Report 2022 confirms the positive results achieved. The measures taken have contributed significantly to the continuous reduction of Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions, which have been reduced by a total of almost 64% since 2020. Furthermore, by 2025, the company has set itself the ambitious target of achieving zero Scope 2 emissions (i.e. zero tonnes of CO2), regardless of company growth. 

Today, almost 100% of the electricity used by Rehau Automotive comes from renewable energy sources, with a 77% reduction in Scope 2 emissions compared to the 2018 base year, while Rehau Industries has reduced emissions by 68%, covering 73% of the electricity consumption of its production facilities with clean energy. 

The target Rehau Industries had set for 2025 has also already been achieved in terms of the use of recycled material in products: the 15% quota, set as a target for the EMEA region in the base year, has therefore been raised to 20% worldwide, by 2025, while the target for carbon-neutral production has been set for 2035.


Transparency and future strategies 

Rehau's eighth Sustainability Report has been prepared according to the standards of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and the new European Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRS). The company thus transparently informs its stakeholders about the main areas of action, measures taken, targets set and the most significant data, while preparing for the transition to the future requirements of the CSRD. Rehau also maintains its commitment to the ten principles of the UN Global Compact to which it is a signatory, with a 2030 sustainability strategy and the respective fields of action derived from the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).


EU taxonomy: Rehau already aligned to new requirements 

With the Green Deal, the European Union aims to become carbon neutral by 2050, with a far-reaching impact on the economic activities of individual companies, the sustainability of which will in future be assessed on the basis of the EU Taxonomy. This defines specific thresholds and requirements for various environmental goals, such as climate protection, circular economy and pollution. 

To be classified as ecologically sustainable, Rehau must ensure that its activities, products and services meet these criteria in the long term. Although the EU taxonomy will only become mandatory for Rehau from the financial year 2025 onwards, the company has already carried out preliminary work to classify its product range, laying the foundation for reporting in line with the new requirements already this year.
