A Sustainable

Ross Gardam® is committed to a sustainable future. We believe in creating objects that endure while being highly disciplined with materials and processes.

Designed to last

Ross Gardam® products are designed to endure, each product being the output of our high calibre, ethical Australian manufacturing process.

To maintain this, high-quality standards apply to everything we do, from ideation and design, material selection, and manufacturing through to packaging and owner support.

Each of our lighting pieces is meticulously assembled, wired, and packaged in our Melbourne-based studio with the utmost care. All our lighting products utilise the most contemporary energy-efficient technologies and our upholstered products carry GECA certification.

Our material selection and use methodology informs our design and manufacturing process and is paramount to the measure of the success of all products.

Small steps, big changes.

Ross Gardam® studio is certified carbon neutral with the Carbon Reduction Institute.  Our office is powered by 100% renewable energy and we have incorporated recycling systems within our business.

All of our upholstered products are crafted to the highest of qualities, made entirely in Melbourne, Australia. Each material and process has been selected based on its environmental properties and durability for longevity.  Each upholstered piece has achieved the highest level of eco-certification with GECA, which is an independently assessed, internationally recognised certification. The GECA program ensures products have a lower impact on the environment and human health as well as being ethically made and fit for purpose.

Product Stewardship

Ross Gardam® and its distribution and manufacturing partners are committed to responsible life cycle management and the core principles of product stewardship and extended producer responsibility. We understand that corporate social and environmental responsibility goes beyond the point of sale and warranty periods.

In conjunction with our distributor and manufacturing partners, we will take back all products and repair, recycle and repurpose them as required.

Our Journey

Recently completing our GECA certification and having our studio become Carbon Neutral are things we are proud of.  As we continue to grow we strive to continue to make progress on our sustainable journey.  In 2023 we are committed to re-accessing all our current packaging solutions.  Although the packaging is already designed to minimise waste while offering the best protection for our delicate products we are confident we can do more.

Our long-term goal is to become a leader in sustainability for Australia’s design sector.  We look forward to working together to achieve some great things in 2023.
