We believe the best way to conserve environmental resources is to design and manufacture furniture of such impeccable quality that it will last for generations. Nothing is more wasteful than disposable furniture.
Very high energy costs are involved in the transportation of furniture and the transportation of raw materials. It is environmentally harmful and a waste of energy to use fossil fuels to transport raw materials from North America to Asia and back again as finished goods. Where possible, we will manufacture our furniture from predominantly domestically manufactured materials in our U.S. based factories.
We meet or exceed all regulatory or industry standard in terms of safety and potential emissions to the environment. No resource is more important than the health of our associates. We set and continually review objectives and targets to protect our global environment. We seek not only to comply with safety and environmental regulations, but also to implement in-house standards to continuously improve our environmental performance and reduce our environmental footprint.
We believe in renewable energy. We buy wood only from certified sustainable forests.
We will continue our efforts to minimize energy use and will maximize our conservation of energy by combusting our manufacturing off-fall to generate power for our manufacturing facilities.
We believe that recycling is critical to pollution prevention: Computers, ink cartridges, batteries, paper, cotton, fabric & leather scraps, cardboard, palates, fluorescent bulbs, cans, glass and bottles, etc. Because each employee owns a stake in our company, he or she is empowered and motivated to recycle whenever possible and systems are in place to maximize our recycling efforts. – less–ZoomInfo
