13 million kitchens
4 – 10 million tons
A holistic approach
Thanks to the data in the material passport of our kitchens, we know exactly when which materials will return to us and our supply chain partners. This ensures an efficient maintenance process for all parties involved. This means that all materials remain in our supply chain for as long as possible. Together we are saving as many materials as possible from the shredder or incinerator.
Thanks to this collaboration, our kitchen is 82% circular according to Alba Concepts’ Product Circularity Index.

A kitchen that plants trees
To measure is to know
A Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of our kitchen is currently being validated. The impact of the kitchen over the entire 60-year lifespan has been calculated. This includes not only the kitchen, but also the kitchen installation, the service moments, two refurbish moments and the dismantling of the kitchen. The research has shown that the largest CO2 impact of our kitchen is the panels (25.8%), followed by the maintenance and repair scenario (15-18%) and thirdly the modular steel frame (12.6%).
The results of the LCA will be available as soon as possible in the National Environmental Database of the Netherlands. This will lead to a fair and transparant comparison with traditional linear kitchens.

Our contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals are seventeen goals to make the world a better place by 2030. The goals form a global compass for challenges such as poverty, education and the climate crisis. Thanks to the collaboration with our supply chain partners, our K-a-a-S model is working towards the realization of SDG 9 – industry, innovation and infrastructure, SDG 12 – sustainable consumption and production and SDG 13 – climate action.

The Natural Step
Kitchens last 15 to 20 years in the Dutch rental market leading to 40,000 tons of discarded kitchen cabinets each year. At Chainable we are convinced that this can and must be changed. We do this by systematically applying the 4 basic principles of The Natural Step to all our processes.
