Actona Group Partners with Makersite to Accelerate Sustainability Goals and Lead Industry in Scope 3 Emissions Reporting


Actona Group, a global pioneer in the furniture industry, is charting a new course towards sustainability and is now partnering with Makersite, an AI-enabled product lifecycle intelligence software known for its comprehensive approach to managing product sustainability, cost, and compliance in real-time.

The collaboration underscores Actona Group’s commitment to significantly enhancing its sustainability and business practices across all aspects of its operations. By leveraging Makersite’s cutting-edge capabilities, Actona Group is ready to achieve detailed insight into product-specific Scope 3 emissions, setting a new industry standard in environmental accountability.

Actona Group recognized the dual benefits of integrating sustainability into its operations: the ethical importance of protecting the planet for future generations and the clear business advantages of driving growth and fostering innovation. As Actona Group is strictly focused on minimising its environmental impact it has been a natural step for the company to automate and expand its sustainability initiatives by tracking and mitigating its supply chain emissions accurately.

To follow through with this initiative, Actona Group emphasized the need for a robust, solution-oriented approach to streamline data collection and analysis, thus ensuring Actona Groups leadership in environmental stewardship within the competitive landscape of the furniture industry.

“Partnering with Makersite represents a significant step forward in our sustainability journey,” said Jimmi King Mortensen, President and CEO of Actona Group. “Makersite’s platform allows us to track emissions at every step of the design process and helps us make informed, sustainable decisions, showing a clear path to customers and suppliers of our commitment to design and source better products.”

The collaboration with Makersite enables Actona Group to further reinforce their commitment to sustainability leadership through its ambitious three-fold mission:

  1. Foster ecodesign and circularity with Life Cycle Assessment (LCA),
  2. Implement sustainable production methods, including supply chain decarbonization.
  3. Extend the use of recycled materials both within its product line and across its supply chain through responsible procurement practices.

“This partnership has proven to be particularly beneficial for providing Actona Group with access to Makersite’s automated, verified and scalable system for Scope 3 emissions reporting,” said Neil D’Souza, CEO and Founder of Makersite. “Our solution has enabled Actona Group to track emissions right down to each individual purchased part and material.”
