For over forty years, Valcucine has stood out for the design and production of high-end kitchens. Always committed to providing excellence in terms of sustainability, innovation, and craftsmanship, Valcucine once again raises the bar with the LEED v.4.1 mapping of kitchens.
LEED, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is the most widely used third-party verification system for eco-friendly buildings. LEED provides a framework for healthy, efficient, low-carbon, and cost-effective green buildings.
The LEED v.4.1 certification is a globally recognized symbol of success and leadership in sustainability.

As a testament to its environmental commitment, Valcucine has expanded its range of FSC® certified kitchen furniture, ensuring that the wood or its derivatives come from FSC® certified supplier chains.
FSC requires forest managers, whether on public or private lands, to involve members of local communities in decision-making processes and to protect the rights of indigenous populations, ensuring that their voices are an integral part of the certification process and that the impact of management operations is surpassed. FSC also mandates that the results of certification audits be made public, even in the case of private properties: this is a distinctive feature compared to other types of certification.

The F4 STARS certification involves its own testing methods and sets a very restrictive limit of 0.04 ppm. By comparison, the limits are 0.09 ppm for the American CARB 2/TSCA Title VI, 0.1 ppm for the European E1, and the German UBA. This certification applies to both raw and coated wood-derived panels and attests to compliance with the requirements specified by Japan for formaldehyde emissions from products intended for construction and furniture.
