Our responsibility

Illustration of staff at Hovia working and creating new wallpaper designs Creating spaces that are kind to people and the planet is central to everything we do. We all know we can be doing better to live and work more sustainably, so we’ve committed to continually reviewing the environmental impact at each stage of our product lifecycle to ensure we’re doing it as responsibly as possible.

Our carbon footprint

We’ve been carbon neutral since 2020 (hooray!). We partnered with climate solution experts BeZero to review our emissions and create a high quality portfolio of carbon offsetting projects. Across South America, Africa and Asia, we support initiatives in forest protection, peatland restoration, methane avoidance, and fruit tree re-vegetation. 

For every wallpaper we design, print and ship, we remove the equivalent amount of CO2 from the atmosphere that we emit.

We’ve always cared about our environmental impact. Since we were founded in 2010, we’ve kept sustainability front of mind in every element of our work. We’re proud of what we’ve achieved so far, but know there is lots more to do.

People

We’re proud to supply people with the means to create their dream spaces. Our designers feel good coming up with the latest ideas and our customers feel good once they see their creative vision becoming a reality.

We partner with charities worldwide to bring the joy of great design to people who need it most.

We’re also working towards our B Corp certification to give our amazing team the best working conditions and ensure we’re operating to the highest possible social and environmental standards.

Products & materials
The paper we use is FSC certified and our inks and toners are non-toxic.

All of our packaging is 100% plastic-free.

Distribution & storage
As we print our wallpaper to order, we don’t need big warehouses to store stock. This means we create very little waste and don’t use excess energy, woohoo! Read more on this below.

Using the DHL Go Green offset programme, we offset our largest carbon contributor (the emissions from distributing our products) and are investing in projects that strive to address carbon emissions through avoidance.

Energy & waste
We use 100% renewable energy in our office, including to power our website servers.

We recycle our ink cartridges to stop them ending up in landfill and we’re constantly reviewing our use of plastics to reduce and remove them completely where possible.
