Building a Sustainable Future: 8 Ways We Reduce Our Environmental Impact

Infographic provided by Global Furniture Group. See full post for more information.

In appreciation of Earth Month, we share with you our story of building a more sustainable future for employees, customers and partners. Our sustainability report outlines the significant steps we take to limit environmental impact at all levels, in all operations – from product development to production to end-of-life management.

Above all, our approach is to design for durability. It means that products are researched and developed to be repeatedly handled, serviced and repaired as needed to create long-lasting solutions.

In production, we work hard to maintain transparency and source responsibly. Owning most of our supply chain allows us to push safety, health and environmental initiatives beyond the minimum requirements. A closed-loop manufacturing approach diverts 100% of our manufacturing waste from landfill.

We are proud of our commitments to reduce our environmental impact. Together as a team, we will continue to push ourselves to do better for a sustainable future.
