The Environment



Wood is a carbon neutral fuel source and absorbs approximately as much CO2 whilst growing as it releases when burned. Varde’s high efficiency stoves make the most of this heat source and burn so cleanly they meet various stringent environmental standards.

Varde was the first woodburning stove manufacturer to meet the strict requirements of the much-coveted Nordic Ecolabel. This standard has exacting requirements for combustion efficiency as well as particle and hydrocarbon emissions.

Thanks to Varde’s eco conscious designs, many of their models meet forthcoming Ecodesign emission targets and proudly bear the SIA Ecodesign Ready label. These tough new emission targets focus on significantly reducing substances present in smoke such as carbon monoxide (CO), nitrogen oxides (NOx), organic gaseous compounds (OGC) and particulates (PM). Stoves which meet these future air quality standards are some of the cleanest burning appliances in the world.
