At Abstracta, we have been working to create better soundscapes since 1972 – which makes us acoustics pioneers. The core of our business is well-being, which for us includes the well-being of future generations and of the planet. As we see it, sustainability is a natural part of our work. Every day, we work hard to reach our five sustainability goals. With us on our journey is a team of skilled suppliers and creative designers that take the issue of sustainability and soundscapes just as seriously as we do.


Abstracta 2030 – our five sustainability goals

– Carbon-neutral
– Recycling of 100 % of our textile waste
– 100% certified wood
– 100% Möbelfakta certified products
– Circular range of products

Waste is our most valuable resource

Waste is simply a resource in the wrong place. Thus, we treat waste material as the valuable resource it truly is. Today we are reusing material, such as textile waste and recycled plastic bottles, as acoustic filling for our products.

The climate crisis demands more than green promises

This is what we do today to reduce our carbon footprint:

– Abstracta’s factory in Lammhult runs on 100 % renewable energy.
– Textile waste and recycled plastic bottles are used as acoustic filling in our products.
– Since 2019, all our new company cars are either electric or plug-in hybrids.
– We prioritize local suppliers, which decrease our emissions from transport.
– We prioritize transport partners with Euro 6 vehicles.

Good design is a more sustainable choice

We collaborate with some of today’s leading designers, to give our acoustic products a timeless style, and we only use high-quality materials that ensure that our products last as long as possible.

Abstracta’s reuse service

We offer a reuse service for our clients. We’ve simply started to collect worn-out acoustic panels and other products for renovation or reuse. To facilitate circularity, all our products are module-based. Thus, they are easy to repair, easy to reuse. This way, we contribute to a more sustainable future.

We believe in renewable natural raw materials

Flax, hemp, and cork are natural materials that we value highly. For example, cork is a 100 % renewable material. When the cork oak has been harvested, the cork bark begins to regrow. Ten years later, it may be harvested again. Cork production occurs in harmony with nature. It helps to preserve beautiful groves of cork oaks, which in turn provide essential habitat for threatened species. Cork has excellent acoustic properties. We use it for several of our products, such as the writing table Draft, and the wall absorber Sahara.

Aluminium with minimal CO2 impact

Our aluminium profiles are produced only an hour away from Abstracta, by a factory in Vetlanda, whose manufacturing process has the lowest carbon dioxide emissions in their branch of industry.

For a sustainable forestry

As a company based in Småland, Sweden, we care for forests. It is important for us contribute to a sustainable forestry, that is beneficial for biodiversity and good for the climate. Today, we are close to our goal that all wood we use should be certified.

No flame retardant chemicals

The standard fabrics we use for our sound absorbers and other products are free from flame retardants. Instead, we use materials that in themselves are fire retardant.

Global Goals

The UN Sustainable Development Goals are the basis of our environmental work. We focus on the five goals to which we can contribute most.

Goal # 3 – Good health and well-being
Goal # 5 – Gender equality
Goal # 8 – Decent work and economic growth
Goal # 12 – Responsible consumption and production
Goal # 15 – Life on land

Nordic Swan Ecolabel
The Nordic Swan Ecolabel is an eco-label with strict environmental requirements. The criteria promote renewable and recycled materials, ensuring that certified products generally have a lower environmental impact. It is also required that the product is not treated with hazardous chemicals and that indoor air quality is not negatively affected. The requirements also cover the product’s quality and its circular properties, contributing to an extended product lifespan. Our certificates are available on

EPD Norway
Some of our products have an EPD (Environmental Product Declaration) published on An EPD is based on a life cycle analysis and covers the entire product life cycle. The environmental impact of the products can be seen in the EPDs, including carbon emissions, among many other factors. An EPD must follow international standards for each product category, enabling the comparison of our products with others.

Acoustic facts
The acoustic values of our sound-absorbing products are presented on, where products can be compared objectively. This ensures that all technical data is accurate and meets international, European, and Swedish standards.
